I’ve just noticed that the Bushido Quick Start rules have been updated to address the many niggling issues with the first version. At a glance they seem to have sorted the obvious errors, and it looks vastly improved now. If you haven’t seen it then you should check it out. The pdf is free to download. Proxy some figures and give it a whirl!
Bushido is something I’m looking forward to playing a lot more. I’ve had a couple of games so far and was running a mate through the basics yesterday and he seems convinced too. It’s a small skirmish game with a fantasy Oriental setting that mixes mostly Japanese and a little Chinese folklore. They’ve got some lovely models and as it plays on a very small (2 foot square) table you can afford to go to town on the scenery too. You could, for example, get something from Oshiro. I haven’t seen their models up close, but they look pretty online and they’re on my (endless) shopping list 🙂
I’ll do a proper review in due course. This is really just a huzzah! that they’ve updated the rules, which was my only real gripe.
