The Ronin

Fresh off the workbench is my first warband for the fantasy skirmish system Song of Blades and Heroes.

The figures from the collection of Alan Slater from whom I inherited them recently.  Alan's decided he no longer wants the stuff I've been storing for him since he went to Japan about twenty years ago!  Alan did all the painting; I just based then to a consistent standard.  As usual, click to enlarge.

In SoBH terms the unit has a Ronin leader, which given that Ronin are "masterless warriors" may be a contradiction in terms, with a Quality of 3 and a combat value of 4 and the special abilities "Fearless" and "Leader".  There's also a Ninja (Q=3, Cbt=3, "Stealth" and "Shooter - short range"), and five Ronin (Q=3, Cbt=3, "Fearless"). 

I get to try out the rules next weekend at Tom Zunder's and may decide to change some of the scores after that.
