An interesting option: Murakami Kaizoku with Woko Pirates

Been thinking about the overall look and feel of the army. Plus running through a POAs vs Pike/Shot. Spearmen POA does not apply versus protected pike/shot. Hence although superior my Samurai are going to fighting at a disadvantage. Impact foot however, do get the a single plus. I’m going to be largely going to be on the back foot versus mounted, so I’m not going expended effort on counter acting something I cannot really influence , other than grab terrian so not in the open.

Back to look and feel: when selecting Murakami Kaizoku, you have the option be bring Woko (Japanese/Chinese) pirates. Arrr… As Madaxeman (Tim Porter) would say.

The Woko give you units that are swordsmen with half ranks being impact foot and half either bow or arquebus. I will go with bow as the short range is the same as my charge range. Reading the list “small print” a usual change for the Woko units is when a base is lost. The Impact foot POA remains at the front.

Given the figures I already have, mine will have a tatty samurai look about them. Basing will be fun as I could do a beach theme with debris.

With the list below, the GC is going to be busy and I only have one TC I can commit to the front rank in combat.
