Test of Honour: Ikko-ikki Bauern
Grey For Now Games bringen eine neue Truppe für Test of Honour heraus.
Ikko-ikki available for pre-order!
They’ve been a long time in the making but finally the Ikko-ikki are here to launch their peasant revolt and overthrow the samurai!
Hand-sculpted by Stavros Zouliatis – the man behind the Warring Clans range – these true believers can stand alone or make the perfect allies for Sohei Monks.
Who are the Ikko-ikki?
The Ikko-ikki were a rebellious group motivated by religious doctrine. They consisted of peasants, merchants, monks and even low-ranking samurai who all followed a militant sect of Buddhism led by a charismatic priest called Rennyo.
In 1486 the Ikko-ikki staged a violent uprising in Kaga province, overthrowing the governor and taking control for themselves – the first time in Japanese history that commoners had ruled a province.
The movement had thousands of dedicated followers – fanatical Sohei warrior monks as well as simple peasant farmers seeking an escape from their lives of toil and oppression.
The rebel peasants are armed with a variety of weapons (counting as katanas in a group). The Oppressed Masses trait makes them particularly dangerous against samurai class enemies.
The rebel spearmen are armed with sharpened bamboo spears. The Mob Rush trait allows you to race forward faster if there are plenty of friends around.
As a pacifist, Rennyo is an unusual character who cannot make attacks – instead he provides huge bonuses to all the believers around him. There is also a Recruitment card to use the model as an Ikko Preacher.
