Ninjas are sneaky. It’s sort of what they’re known for. While everyone was busy looking at the Jung Pirates (along with their crab-centaur-guy) at Gen Con, a new ninja was waiting off to the side, ready to ambush us with a new preview of GCT Studios’ Wave 31 for Bushido. Well, we...

Yo ho-ho, a pirate’s life for me. If you want to live the pirate’s life as well on your Bushido tabletops, your wait is nearly over. The next faction for the game, the Jung Pirates, are soon to be let loosed upon the seas of the Jwar Isles. If you’re going to Gen Con, you […]...

As Gen Con gets closer, so does the imminent release of the newest faction for GCT Studios’ Bushido (editorializing here: it’s tied for my favorite miniatures game out there). It’s not just a starter set that’s coming out, either. The faction is rolling out in style with extra...

Sort of a double-feature (whether it’s late night or not) coming at you today from GCT Studios. Well, when you’ve got some big things on the horizon, you’ve got some big news posts. Today we get a look at another of the Jung Pirates, the new Bushido faction that will be premiering a...

The Jung Pirates are a new faction that’s coming to Bushido from GCT Studios. We’ve seen a preview of the starter set that will be available first at Gen Con in just over a month’s time. They told us that they’ll have more than just the starters there, and so they’ve pos...

Gen Con will be here before we know it. Companies love to have new releases available for those that will be at the show. GCT Studios will be there. And they’ll certainly have new releases available. The big, new release is a whole new faction for Bushido. They’re the Jung Pirates, and GC...

Bakemono are tricky, little buggers. Some can jump into shadows and come out elsewhere. Others employ various magic spells to confound you. And some just turn into giant, hulking brutes and bash your brains in with their now-oversized hands. That’s the case for Xi-Han and his alter-ego, Zoo. Th...

Zombies. So, technically, Bushido doesn’t have them. However, they do have the Kairai for the Cult of Yurei. They’re pretty close. No, they won’t eat your brains. But they will gladly bash you to death with a giant mallet or stab you with farm implements at the behest of their maste...

While I certainly do enjoy a lot of different miniatures games, one of my favorites is Bushido by GCT Studios. It checks many of my, “I love when they do this in games” boxes. So I’m very much thrilled to hear that they’ll be coming out with a new faction for the game at Gen [...

The Tengu Descension has regular humans in it, as well as bird-people. But what about just birds? Well, they’ve got that covered, too. They’re equal-opportunity on the man-to-bird scale when it comes to faction members. Today we get a look at the Giant Eagle figure for Bushido....

There’s a little bit of everything going on in this update from GCT Studios, actually. The dogs are just the first part of it. About them, we all know that dog fighting isn’t a good idea in the real world. However, we also know that running people through with swords or shooting fireballs...

While most models for Bushido are unique characters, and thus have lots of complex things they can do, sometimes you need simple, straight-forward figures that cost a few points less to fill in your forces. That’s where models like Kira come in. She’s a new monk for the Temple and she can...

The Tengu Descension faction for Bushido has more than just tengu in it. The bird-creatures work very closely with several hill tribes of humans. Kanut is the leader of those hill tribes. As great a leader as he is a warrior, you really don’t want to be on the wrong end of that axe of […...

Well, hopefully you got your orders in for Wave 27 for Bushido in. Of course, since Wave 27 is available to order, we need to start getting a look at what’s coming up in Wave 28. That’s just what we’re here doing today, as the first figure preview for Wave 28 has been posted. For [&...

At the risk of editorializing, I really enjoy playing Bushido (even though I’ve not really had a chance to do so in quite some time). It’s sad how far behind I’ve gotten on releases, considering how much I love the game. But waddyagonnado? Seems I’ll be just a little bit more ...

It’s time to get another look at some upcoming figures for Bushido. This time we get a look at some new pirates and some new figures for the Prefecture of Ryu. As I mentioned in a previous preview, the stats for these figures seem once more a “return to form” for some of the figures...

A bit of a mixed bag here in this news update from GCT Studios. First off, there’s a pair of new Bushido minis to show off. There’s one for Prefecture and one for Temple (two factions I play), so that’s pretty cool. Though I feel they’re a bit overshadowed by the notice that n...

It’s not just kung-fu monks, ninja goblins, and sumo-wrestling giants in Bushido. You don’t have to worry about a snap-kick coming from Misao, the Grey Rose, but that doesn’t mean you should just ignore her on the battlefield. Her mystic abilities are on-par with the greatest monk s...

When Bushido first came out, I looked into it and picked up the Prefecture as my main faction (also picking up Temple to go with). One of my favorite pieces was the gunner. In a game with so much of a focus on melee, having a reliable ranged attack on the field was a big […]...

So, anyone go as a ninja for Halloween? I once went as a ninja turtle… in, like… maybe 1990 or something. I forget, exactly. Now there would be a cool crossover with Bushido. I know. I know. They have the kappa, but to have actual ninja turtles? Ah well. We don’t have that today, bu...

Shadows and wind. They’re not really something you can catch and keep. Wind, by its very definition, is always on the move. And a shadow you can never grab. Seems like an appropriate clan name for a group of ninjas. And that is just the case for Bushido. GCT Studios is showing off a new [&helli...

Ninjas are known to be a rather sneaky lot. It’s sort of the whole point to them, really. Sure, you can be good at martial arts, but if you stumble around like an elephant everywhere you go, you can’t really say you’re a ninja (or at least, not a very effective one). Well, GCT Studi...

Birds (or for my friends from New York, “Boids”). They’re what dinosaurs turned into (think of that next time you’re eating a McNugget). So, as such, they can be pretty badass. Well, some of the most badass birds around are those of the Tengu Descension for Bushido from GCT St...
