Description

Description

Test of Honour is a skirmish wargame played with roughly 5-20 models on each side. Players select their force before each game based around a samurai hero along with one or two loyal samurai companions and a variety of clan soldiers.

The 6 battle scenarios included tell a tale of bitter clan rivalry, betrayal and revenge. The battles are designed to be played in order, forming an ongoing story, with consequences for the victor and loser of each game.

As you play through the scenarios your samurai will use new skills, and perhaps even take the shameful path of deceit and trickery to gain victory – such choices are the ultimate test of honour.

Masked Men

Warrior Monk Masahiro has vowed to fight the injustices of the Japanese clans. He and his followers battle the power of the samurai, taking the armoured face-plates of their fallen enemies as badges of victory.

Contains:

  • 18 unique cards – including Ancient Curse and Pure Weapon
  • 1 metal character model – Warrior Monk Masahiro
  • 10 plastic figures
  • 10 metal ‘masked’ heads
  • 3 mulltibases

The stealing face-plates idea has no historical grounding, but we thought it was a cool idea that might well have happened. Perhaps more importantly it demonstrates what a different look you can create by changing the heads.

Warrior Monks meanwhile are an established part of the history of the period and had many conflicts with the ruling samurai clans. Like the other new metal character models Masahiro has his own character card (costing an extra point or two to recruit), or you can simply use one of the standard samurai cards (yes, even though monks weren’t samurai!).

The set includes a variety of Mystical skills that emphasise the power of prayer and belief. A few of you have asked if we’ll be including magic and monsters and other Japanese fantasy elements. The quick answer is ‘no’... The game is inspired by samurai movies but definitely still historical at the core!

Mounted Samurai

Following the murder of her husband, the widow Takeda Naoko dons the armour of a samurai and rides out to seek vengeance, all the while clinging desperately to the path of honour.

Contains:

  • 18 unique cards – including The Side of Right and Powerful Charge
  • 1 metal character model – Onna Bugeisha Takeda Naoko
  • 5 plastic mounted figures
  • 5 metal ‘neat bare’ heads

The rules for cavalry in the game are very simple (presented on the recruitment cards in this set), but adding even just one or two to your force changes things dramatically. The extra movement multiplied by 3 actions for your hero means you can get your most powerful model exactly where you need him (or her). And an all cavalry force is very interesting to play!

The onna bugeisha character (female samurai) comes with skill cards to show her sense of honour, family pride, and a haughty attitude to the low-born, plus a particularly interesting quest where you have to interrogate enemy samurai once they are vanquished to discover a secret. The idea is that she is tracking down her husband’s murderer. Could it be the ronin Tadashi?

Models supplied unassembled and unpainted. Dice colour may vary from the one in the picture.
