Salute 2014 – Attack on a Joka-machi

There seems to have been less katana action at Salute 2014 than in previous years. Oshiro Model Terrain however was present once again to fly the samurai banner, and their board was a delight as usual.

A besieging force has fought its way through a castle town and is now outside the main walls. Can the defenders rally out and push them back in bitter street fighting?

Salute 2013 – Feudal Japan

As in previous years, Salute 2013 saw a small but beautifully presented selection of tables set in Japanese feudal history.

The majority of photos I took are from Oshiro Model Terrain’s Assault on Aki Kamei-jo.

Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy magazine ran the participation game Wrath of Heaven using an adaptation of the Muskets & Tomahawks rule set. It saw players take on the role of Shinobi from the legendary Azuma clan, carrying out stealthy ninja missions for the Daimyo.
