    Raising a cup of sake today after finally finishing my 40th base of 6mm Sengoku. Each base 95mm x 70mm. Baccus figures.

    I hate you, in a good way ofc!!

    I am not sure what is more impressive, all them or all your terrain work!
    Thanks for sharing.

    Those are spectacular. Love the mixed troop formations of the sonae.

    I would say, “I must get on with my 3mm samurai,” but I know lack of opportunity to get them on a table with real opponents will make that unlikely, meantime.

    Wonderful work! Looks excellent.

    What rules are you using? I remember your earlier posts were still unsure of which rules.

    Cheers.

    As to rules, I’m going to use a set based on Simon Miller’s ‘For King and Parliament.’ I’ve got a basic draft together, so I’ll continue to add to it after some more games. The draft is downloadable from my ‘blog:

    Fantastic!

    My eyes hurt at the mere thought of painting them…

    Sensational!

    The rule adaptations look good too – I haven’t got For King and Parliament but the ideas look as if they might adapt another set I have in mind.

    Looking forward to seeing them all in action.

    Simply beautiful.

    Yes, fantastic figures and interesting rules; thank you for letting us know about them. Hope the sake was good – a cup or two, suitably warmed, suits the time of year.

    Downloaded the rules to read more thoroughly later. I’m relieved to see that my version of Tenkatoitsu and yours look fairly similar at a quick skim.

    Thanks for making them available.

    Fantastic  and congratulations for all the work that went into such a terrific project.

    Thanks everyone, it’s been a very rewarding project so far. It’s been interesting to see other people looking to develop their own ‘sonae-based’ battle rules too. Understandable, as I don’t think this kind of approach to Sengoku warfare is something that’s likely to be pursued by any commercial rules writers any time soon.

    Next thing is to develop some rules for small battles, using more ‘conventional’ units 🙂

    Really nice, I just love how colorful it all is, really easy to identify different lords unit’s, though not necessarily whose side they are on!

    Just promise to show us photos when you play out the Battle of Sekigahara.

    Found this interesting article on sonae composition:

    Very impressive. I see Oda, Shimazu, Otomo and Kiso?

    Tired is enough.

    The small battle project are Ōtomo and Shimazu.

    The large bases are Mōri, Kikkawa, Kobayakawa, Awaya and Murakami for the Mōri, Ukita, Besshō, Kodera and Akamatsu for the neutral clans, and these for the Oda:

    Had a go at some rules for small battles. So a unit here is closer to 100 men than 1,000 for the big battle game. Again based on To The Strongest/King and Parliament. Worked better than I expected, but still a way to go I think.

    You’re just going to tease us like that?!?!  You sure do know how to keep a turkey is suspense.
