I've got oodles of Japanese terrain but I very rarely get to play on it. This changed the other week (some of you might have seen this on the LAF but there's no harm in a second outing ).
The small village of Kahano lays peacefully near the coast on the Kanto plain, unaware that a small raiding party of Wako and Ronin are on their way to steal and pillage.
The Murakami Wako start to make their way across the river
But the Ronin cross by the bridge and seem to be unaware that a small Sanada force is coming down the main street to see them off
The Murakami cross the river in force and dramtically see of a small unit of Sanada teppo
Meanwhile, the Ronin cross the bridge into the village proper and are met by the main Sanada unit, fierce fighting ensues in the narrow street
The Ronin are seen off and chased out of the village, loosing many men as they go
Seeing the threat from the unscathed Murakami, the victorious Sanada unit moves from the bridge to confront them
But they are beaten and the victorious Murakami have the village... I felt the images from the destruction of the village were too distressing for the gentle folk reading this so I'll leave it to your imagination...
Actually, there weren't any photos from the end as I forgot to take any ;-)
Hopefully more in the coming months.
