28mm Warrior Monks

Here are some warrior monks I painted up for a skirmish game. I mostly use square bases, but circular bases just simply look better for skirmishes. The Miniatures are from The Assault Group, a very good choice for earlier period samurai armies.

Some of their friends, wielding naginata. All in all I like the TAG warrior monks, even if they join the common misconception of warrior monks as always running around in full robes and cowls. This is largely a later, romantisized image, and a wargamer interested in a historical correct warrior monk army should sprinkle these into a force of both fully armed samurai and more haphazardly equipped retainers. And a copy of Mikael S. Adolphson's excellent "The teeth and claws of the Buddha:
monastic warriors and sohei in Japanese History", of course.

I uploaded a new review, this time covering the 28mm Ashigaru Missile Troop box from Wargames factory.

The horses used by the samurai had an average height at only around 130 cm, and could barely come up to 7-9 km/h when carrying an armoured samurai.
