Another year rolls by. Daisho rule set mini review

 Hard to believe I have lived for also 7 decades.  Saturday marked another year of my life gone by.  Hope to have more of miniatures painted before the next one. 

  Just got my copy of Daimyo Japanese skirmish rules.  Blood eagle should be arriving soon as I ordered it from Britain a couple of weeks ago.

 Daisho has a nice system for movement and battle.  Each player rolls for inaitive  the highest goes first.  This player moved one of figures of choice. After the figure is moved the next high score moves a figure. And so on.  Below is from the author.

Daisho – Skirmish Wargaming Rules in Mystical Japan.

Have you ever wanted to replicate the incredible feats of swordsmanship you see in movies like 47 Ronin and 13 Assassins? Stand surrounded by half a dozen angry Ashigaru and then, in a single fluid motion, strike them all down?
Bring forth fiery darts from heaven and hurl them at your enemies? Face demons from the pits of hell? Disarm and hammer an arrogant Samurai lord into the dust with your bare hands?
You can do this and much more if you play Daisho, skirmish wargaming in mythical Nippon.

This game allows players to field forces of five to fifteen miniatures in a game you can easily complete in an evening on a space only a yard square. The rules are short and simple to learn – few players need to refer to them after their second or third game.
This book provides:
• The core rules of play.
• The complete points system so you can create your own forces.
• Full listings for twelve unique forces.
• Armour, weapons and equipment, both mundane and magical.
• Listings of skills, heroic ki powers and magical powers.
• Fifteen scenarios, supported by seventeen scenario complications.
• Ten detailed landscapes for you to play across, and
• Simple, yet rewarding campaign rules.

 Now I need to find where I put my figures... Damn ninja's are hiding in the shadows on my game room
