New 15mm Komosu and Sohei Monks plus free bolt on game for Sengoku

Now released as Alternative Armies new 15mm scale miniatures sculpted by John Bell added to the Sengoku range of Japanese Fantasy.  As we build towards the next mega set of miniatures this time it is a pack and singles of Komosu and Sohei Monks to add to your collection.  As well as this we are delighted to present a simple two page game written by John Bell as a free download which bolts onto the Monster Hunter rules.  Go HERE or read on for more.

Last time we brought you the Gashadokuro (Giant Skeleton of the Dishonoured Dead) the largest model in the range thus far.  Work continues upon the sequel to Sengoku Monster Hunter and its going well.

SGFP35 Komosu and Sohei Monks
This pack contains twelve mixed miniatures some in two parts.  Four Komusu Monks with flutes mixed from two poses.  Eight Sohei Monks with weapons as well as unarmoured or armoured legs taken from four different poses. Supplied with a correct mix of armoured and plain legs.  Taken from codes SGF114-119 as singles. The pack offers a small saving off the single purchase of these codes.  Go HERE.

You can also get these new poses as single miniatures under their own codes as outlined.  There are now more than one hundred and twenty miniatures in the Sengoku range making it (as far as we know) the biggest 15mm Japanese Fantasy selection in the world.  Have a browse HERE.

Ace Gaiden – Sengoku Monster Hunter

Sengoku Monster Hunter  
A Tabletop Game for up to Four Player or Solo Play using the Sengoku range of 15mm miniatures
A game for one to four players set in medieval Japan where monsters and creatures of myth roam the jagged crags and hidden valleys of the Sacred Mountain. It is from the Sengoku setting and has merciless hunters who track down the monsters and slaughter them at every opportunity. Who you Play. Hunters are the players characters in the game. Each hunter has a profile of attributes, skills and special abilities that players can improve if their hunters are successful. There is a range of weapons, armour and equipment that hunters can acquire as well hired henchmen, spirit guides and others to assist them in their expeditions. The more powerful the hunters get…the greater challenges they can take on!  Author:  Steve Danes. A4 Format, 52 pages.  In PRINT or a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD at a twenty percent less.

  1. Excellent additions, I like the hooded monks in particular. It's a unit I felt was missing among the range in the past, glad to see them all sculpted up.

  2. Thank you!

    The range is expanding and there and many more miniatures coming.


  3. Damn... I will have to invest in a new setting.
