GCT Studio previews Zung Fu for Savage Wave for Bushido

GCT Studio is showing off another mini for the next wave of Bushido releases with a look at Zung Fu for Savage Wave.



Source

From the preview:

For so long have the Shugenja of the Bakemono tribes lived and worked with darkness and shadow that they seem to see it almost as a living breathing entity. They whisper, listen and learn from the deep blackness in which they dwell. Where others see emptiness they see power and an ancient knowledge. So long have they lingered there that in battle the Shugenja are able to harness the endless dark strength of the shadows to grip enemies in place to be hacked to pieces, or to shroud ones very soul obscuring it from the light. Those who have lived to tell the tale are never the same and many seem lost after, the light behind their eyes extinguished forever.

Available to Pre-Order now along with the rest of Wave 15, Zung Fu is £7.95

GCT Studios previews painted Nezumi Kun for Bushido

GCT Studios is showing off the painted-up Nezumi Kun for the Cult of Yurei for Bushido. Plus, if you're headed to SmogCon, they've got a bit more info about the tourney they're running there.



Source

From the preview:

Little is known about the origins of Nezumi Kun, even the scholars of the Blue library could only guess at the occult rituals and black magic used to create this “Son of Nezumi”. The savage Yokai appears more wild and feral than its “father”, striking from nowhere, only a rank stench left to mark its passage before it scuttles away into the darkness. Waiting and lurking in the shadows waiting for instruction from a faceless unseen evil.

Well if we were excited about SmogCon before we are all the way upto 11 on the dial now, the tournament sold out and so the upstanding gentlemen organising SmogCon have found us some more space meaning the tournament has been boosted from 24 to 32! If you missed out on registering for the tournament get across and get your name down now whilst there are still spaces available.

GCT Studios rounds out the concepts and posts a brand new scenario for Bushido

GCT Studios is showing off another two concept art pieces for upcoming Bushido releases and has yet another scenario posted up for you to check out.



Source

From the post:

The Shisai and Samurai of the Ito clan feel no fear even in the heart of enemy territories when they are escorted by the Jade Mamba Guard. Their loyalty to the rulers of Izu is total and unquestionable. Their number made up of the faithful of Orochi and a strict selection process ensures that only the best remain and are allowed to take on the honor of guarding the Ito elite. Although the training is a closely guarded secret it is whispered that the final test for the recruit is to put his or her hand into a basket containing the deathly Jade Mamba, if the prospect’s loyalty is not total they are bitten and left to die in excruciating agony.

Whether with yari or the fabled Arquebus the ashigaru stationed at Ryu are staunchly loyal to the Takashi and will defend their clan to the death. They are trained and drilled relentlessly to ensure that in battle they act and react instinctively, unflinching as they wait for orders from their Gunso or samurai commanders. The Arquebusers see it as such an honor to be picked into the regiment that it is said that they even take them on their final journey to Hantaisoku. The fear their weapons create is rightly deserved as there is little that can stand up to the raw power, steel, wood and fire fused into this fearsome device.

GCT Studios previews new Ito model for Bushido

GCT Studios is showing off the next model to be released for the Ito. It's Ito Masunagi, the "Red Death."



Source

From the preview:

Little is known of Itsunagi Ito’s enforcer. The “Red Death” as he is known in Okyo, named so for the mask that never leaves his face. Some whisper that Orochi’s gift has warped and distorted his face. What is clear is that his mind is definitely twisted. The apparent satisfaction he makes from cleaving his foes in half, or the calmness in battle reflects the actions of one who is teetering close to madness. Rumours and conjecture aside what is undisputable is that Masunagi Ito is a fearsome and brutal warrior on the field of battle.
