I recently received my shipment of the "Ito" which is the fifth faction for GCT Studios brilliant skirmish game - Bushido. These were the result of a very successful Indiegogo campaign a few months ago which you can view here:
Dice & Cards
Normally in Bushido starters you get ten black and white dice and a red die (defence and attack). This is GCT's first venture into Faction dice. They are a good size and contain five green and five green/black dice. The six on the dice is the Ito faction logo. These are 16mm in size.
The Profile cards look great and are in the "New Dawn"* rules format. The top set of starter set cards are in a special Ito design. These are an Indiegogo campaign backer thing only. The bottom 4 cards are the everyday normal profile card version. As you can see in the pic the full art cards are extreamly nice.
* New Dawn, is the revised rule set for Bushido and there are considerable differences in profile cards from the original rules version.
A 30mm base, a little bit of filing may be possible to make the insert of the arm onto the body a bit deeper. The fan has a small nodule for extra security on the back of the head. In game she has a nasty ability to dump poison counters on the enemy from afar!
These two models are either standard Temple Bushi with a joint profile card, or the fellow on the bottom can be used as Chiyo, who is more expensive (in terms of rice), but has a few different traits and a special defence which gives you additional force building options.
The Indigogo Extras
These models will be available over the next few months to normal customers and give some rather good alternative options.
30mm base and a beautiful figure. Look on GCT Studios Facebook for the studio paint job. Expensive in game, but like other Shisai can channel Ki. Can dish out poison from afar, suck ki from a target and remote worsen models conditions!
An absolutele stunning set of miniatures with a fabulous running flavour to the faction.
