Battles are swift and bloody as players alternate acting with one of their warriors - moving and fighting to achieve the objective of the scenario, whether that may be cutting down the enemy, defending an outpost or finding and protective a spy.
As you play through the scenarios your Samurai will use new skills, and perhaps even take the shameful path of deceit and trickery to gain victory - such choices are the ultimate Test of Honour.

I have been massively interested in Japanese history and Samurai warfare,and was in two minds to make my own foray into Test of Honour along the historical lines. However I also love the Legend of the 5 Rings background and thought this game and its small model count would be ideal for the warring Clans.
Now my hobby time has taken a serious hit lately due to real life constraints and health issues which mean I cant paint as much as I would like and recently I have sent some stuff to the very talented Littleninjapainting, so I sent off my force and below are the results. All painting of miniatures by Littleninjapainting. All scenery, Sashimono/Nobori banner decals and basing by myself.
I am really looking forward to getting this force on the table at the end of the month at the Warring States tournament being held at Warlord Games.
