New Onna-bugeisha Available From Warlord Games

Medieval Japan is full of badass warrior women in the form of the Onna-bugeisha. And they're hitting the battlefields in Test of Honour. Warlord Games is taking orders for the Onna-bugeisha of Asakura set. If you want to add to it, they also have separate sets of the different components you can get.




Onna-Bugeisha, a female martial artist, are members of the samurai class. Noblewomen trained to fight for their homes, their honour and their family. These women were not ornaments; they were as dangerous as their male counterparts, amply able to defend their homes and property while the armies were away on campaign. Historically Onna-Bugeisha have been associated with the Naginata and Kaiken as fighting weapons; one very long and one very short! That is not to say they were limited to those weapons and yumi, yari, katana and teppo all feature in an Onna-Bugeisha’s armoury.
