Hosokawa Tadaoki and Katagiri Katsumoto and retinue.

Out of stock

Hosokawa Tadaoki and Katagiri Katsumoto, plus standard bearers and elite samurai.

Hosokawa Tadaoki, wearing a pheasant feather kabuto, was a powerful Toyotomi Daimyo who later supported the Tokugawa.

Katagiri Katsumoto was also a loyal Toyotomi supporter; he is wearing armour covered in bear fur.

The three elite hatamoto samurai guards wear unusual armours that would have mostly been worn by daimyo or high profile samurai. One has a eboshi kabuto and a sashimono of a burning arrow. The next is wearing a unusual kawari kabuto, with a cow head style top and carries a nagamaki. The last also wears a rare kabuto type mimicking a human forehead and he wears nio dou armour, representing a old wandering ronin. This figure is an attempt to portray Sasaki Kojiro a famous master swordsman who was Hosokawa’s master at arms
