Ah, Warlord has posted some rules to add Samurai aspects to your Pike & Shotte armies. Makes me want to get some borscht and watch Battleship Potemkin (because now I’m just messing with you). But the fact that Warlord has posted up a new set of rules to field Japanese forces isn’t messing with you. That’s true.

The rules are free to get. Just head to the website and you can find the .pdf. From there, it’s a simple matter of figuring out what samurai you want to be a part of your feudal Japanese forces, then take them out against various European forces, looking to see who had the best soldiers of the era.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Borscht & Potemkin, tee-hee, this place is getting so meta. 😉

      I have a hard time imagining what it is like to WANT to watch Battleship Potempkin.

      I mean, important advancements in the medium aren’t always the most watchable of films.

      Just skip to the Odessa Steps sequence, and you’re good.

      • Back when I was getting my Associate’s in History (before I moved on to get my BA), I was taking every history class that my local community college offered. That included a History of Film class where we watched Potemkin. Yeah, I can’t say it’s top of my “to watch again soon” list. As you say, important to the history of film as an art form, not something I’d like to sit through again.

        Metropolis on the other hand… I need to watch that one again.

          Oh, yeah, Metropolis is great. I haven’t gotten a hold of the complete version they found in 2008 yet. The version I saw just has title cards about the “thin man.”

          I’m a fan of a lot of silent cinema, but some of it is a lot more watchable than others.

          Fritz Lang went on to do some neat sound cinema as well- Peter Lory has never been so creepy as he was in M.
