Attack on Kahano

Time for a battle report :-)

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


More units of Sanada troops enter the village


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.

  1. Amazing terrain - the quality and quantity truly impressive. As a side-note, I think a version of Lion Rampant would work nicely for this type of scenario.

  2. That is a seriously impressive table and figures, something to aspire to with my own embryonic Japanese terrain!

  4. Many thanks for the replies chaps :-)

    Dean, we played our own little set of simple rules called Little Lead Adventures which might get posted up once we've sorted them out, still very much a wip.

    I've heard good things about LR but I do prefer a looser playing style than they might supply.

    cheers

    2. The slight problem being is that we play so many different theatres/periods it's difficult to settle on one finished set lol

  6. Exellent AAR James ! Stunning terrain and minis!

    Would have been nice with a OOB and something about the rules used in the AAR and Also a overview picture with deployment etc in the bginning of the AAR.

    I to think Lion Rampant would work really well and in My mind they are really lose ?

    I really looking forward to more aar's with your lovely terrain! May be one with you Robin Hood terrain if you still have it?

    Best regards Michael

  8. Thanks again gents :-)

    Michael, I'm not very good at doing battle reports as I get 'caught up' in the action, hence the sparsity of writing for it.

    I think there were three units a side with one of them being a missile unit and the rules are still wip at the moment :-)

    Good idea about the over head shot though, I'll try and remember for next time.

    cheers
