Samurai and Daimyo

Sek 15

Sek 15

Elite mounted Samurai.

Contains the two figures pictured.

The left figure is wearing a costly Namban style armour, with fur thigh guards, a man armed like this would be very important.

The figure on the right wears a Niu-do armour with scales on the thigh guards and arms. He is carrying a Nodachi, which was used by mounted Samurai for its long reach. This is a very theatrical armour worn by a wealthy Warrior who would want the armour to in some way reflect his formidable reputation.
