Late Samurai 1550-1600 (ish!)

15mm Pewter Figurines : Packs contain 8 foot figures or 4 mounted (or otherwise described)

These figures represent the Japanese Soldiers of the Azuchi-Momoyama or Late Warring Kingdoms period.

In 1543 a Portugese vessel with a cargo of firearms bound for China was blown off course and landed in Japan. The introduction of firearms that resulted revolutionised Japanese warfare and culminated in wars of unification, initiated by the tactically gifted Oda Nobunaga and completed by his protege Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

This period also saw the ill fated invasion of Korea (1592-1598) in which the Japanese not only fought the Koreans but also the Ming Chinese (Jurchen/Manchu).

To allow more freedom to the sculptor for poses (and ease of casting), the two sword combination (Katana / Wakizashi) worn by the many of the Samurai & Ashigaru is provided as a separate casting in the packs to glue in place if desired.
