Woohoo, news from GCT!
It's not very good news, but it does let us know production of models will continue.
Also, with the delay, Gordon (the G in GCT I believe) has put up the Shimogama Vipers profile in the Ito Clan forums. BEHOLD!
They're so sexy in my warbands. No support model is safe. MWAHAHAHA. I could go on and on about how the vipers function in my lists, but it tends to be something like: pick a support, swoop in, kill them with poison.
Unfortunately I've not been playing any wargames recently, being in a board gaming mood and trying to design a D&D campaign that has a coherent story *and* setting, but Adam Davies has started to play Bushido, picking up the Silvermoon Trade Syndicate and Savage Wave - he tends to go into the deep end, so I'm pretty sure he's got everything for both factions at the moment. It'll be good to have a Silvermoon player who's a bit more ruthless and focused so we can see all the broken that comes out.
A number of threads are opening up on the forums discussing different warbands within a faction. The Temple lists I find quite interesting, and the Ito Clan forums have always had a number of different warband discussions goings, this time it seems to be focused on warbands with only 6 models (I just don't get it). What I do like about the game is the sheer number of different warbands there seem to be out there. There are usually some staple figures in every faction (Tra-peng for example) but the rest of the models seem to shift around quite drastically.
