Wave 36 is apparently going to be bringing something new to Bushido from GCT Studios. What is it? I don’t know. I tried asking Odin but he was pretty tight-lipped on the whole thing. Cheeky bastard. I know he’s holding out on me. For now, we’ve just got this little art preview to go...

It’s always cool to see new artwork coming out for the games we play. Will it be some cool soldier in armor? Maybe a monk in robes? Or maybe it’ll be a spider monkey. In the case of the new artwork preview for Bushido‘s Wave 35 from GCT Studios, it’s a bit of that. In-particul...

Several companies allow winners of their big tournament for the year work with the developers in order to come up with a miniature for the game. GCT Studios is one such company, and Hakzabo is one such miniature. He was created with the help of James Hasker, the current Grand Master for Bushido. Hakz...

Along with the various heroes and creatures that you can use in Bushido, you shouldn’t overlook some of the nameless troopers that can help fill out your force. They might not be as good a sorcerer or swordsman, but they can help out with completing objectives and tying up enemy pieces. The Ito...

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....

Bannermen have a long tradition in warfare. A battle, after all, is rather chaotic. So having a bit of an idea where your guys are can be really handy. The Ito certainly are no strangers to battle. As such, they have their own bannerman, Jirou....

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...
