The temples and monasteries of feudal Japan weren’t just a retreat from everyday life, they were a hotbed of political and religious unrest. What better place for a dust up then?
The next piece of my Japanese village project is probably the most important: some houses! Not much of a village without them to be honest!
My current project is a small Japanese village as a setting for games of Ronin, and one of the first things I’ve got done are a pair of these rural storehouses from Sarissa.
There are some pieces of terrain that you put on a board, and you’ve instantly set the location and period. This Japanese bridge from Sarissa just conjures the time of the samurai before you even put your miniatures on the table.
I caught sight of this burnt truck model in the eBay shop of Anyscale Models a little while ago and thought it was a pretty cool chunk of resin.
