SAM 12. Elite Samurai – mounted.
Elite Samurai – mounted.
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. Mounted figures are one-piece castings of rider and horse. Sashimono for these figures can be added from the Sashimono, Weapons and Decals section.
