The Savage Wave (of Mutilation) is mostly made up of the tricky goblins and the hulking Oni. In the next set of release for Bushido, a new Oni will be joining their ranks. Sporting a semi-set of armor as well as a pair of nasty-looking cleavers, Goro looks to make his mark on the battlefield....

I know how gamers are. They want the latest and the greatest and they want it now, now, now! If they can’t be the first to get the new batch of toy soldiers, they can get rather agitated. Well, some of them, anyway. Well, whether you absolutely must have the greatest right away or not, [&hellip...

Well, it’s happened again. The world’s come to an end. Damnit, Carl! I told you to not push that button. Now humanity is spread across a nuclear wasteland, having to huddle together, scavenge resources from the surrounding desert, recruit new survivors, and perform research for the Arc in...

At Gen Con, in the GCT Studios display case, up at the top, off to one side, there was a model. At the time, it didn’t have a name, but it certainly was causing a bit of a stir. I mean, you don’t see many man/crab centaur models around. Well, he now has a name […]...

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...

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 [...

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...
