New Tengu and Set 10 released for Sengoku 15mm Japanese Fantasy

Its fantasy bird style for today's news as there are now just over two hundred poses in this unique 15mm miniature range at Alternative Armies.  Go HERE.

Almost entirely sculpted by the talented John Bell these latest releases mean massive choice as every miniature is a single pose, a value pack and now ten sets which between them contain every pose in the range for an easy beginning.  

Nine new Tengu and Dai Tengu giving you archers, ninjas as well as a sitting lord, fire blower and female bird creatures. Codes are SGF196 to SGF2024 as well as pack codes SGFP55 snd SGFP56.

As well as the Tengu there is the Set Ten saver pack as well which includes the new poses plus the oddity of the Fuku Tanuki as well Japanese Boxes and Containers.

If you fancy tracking down yokai, creatures, bandits and others as a skilled warrior then look no further than Steve Danes rule set Sengoku Monster Hunter. A Tabletop Game. 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. Two different books both in print and as digital downloads as well.   The second book 'Rampage' adds many more options to play.

Thanks for Reading,



  1. Wish they had a starter deal on this... books and 2 armies to pit against one another as a special deal. Make it easier to start the game.

    1. We have considered it. We have a pack of hunters and value sets of miniatures, the rules are very wide indeed. If you have some input on what might be in the starter set please do reply and let me know. GBS

    2. I've been looking at this ruleset. Solo monster hunting is always great fun (I play a bunch of 5 Leagues). A deal with the rule book, some hunters and their retainers and a bunch of monsters to go hunt would be a nice starting point.

      It is unclear to me if buying the rules and one of the 10 packs would give me the right stuff to game with!

    3. Thanks for your comment Jason. The choice is all in what makes up a starter set as you generate foes as you go. As long as customers would be happy that the revealed monsters would not be what they had in the starter set then it would be fine. Every play is different. If I had to say one pack to get with the book (most start with the book and then come back for the miniatures they wish) then the pack of hunters plus a pack of human warriors plus Sengoku Set 1 would be a starting place.
