The warriors represented in this box can be used with other Sohei forces, Ikko Ikki rebels, as well as allied samurai clans. These zealous believers do not fear death and fight even harder if their brethren are slain.
Superior Saburo leads the defence of the temple-fortress, galloping at his enemies to deliver a devasting one-off attack with the Dive Strike card.
The Sohei sergeant can send his troops surging forward in a sudden wave (or unleash a sudden blast of gunfire if you use him as a gunnery sergeaant) - a definite contrast to the steady ashigaru of the clans.
Meanwhile the Creed Bearer carries a banner daubed with inspiring prayers and religious slogans, making it more likely for nearby believers to trigger their Strike bonuses.
The devout Temple Guards themselves are the toughest fighters, hand-picked from among the warrior monks and able to shrug off minor injuries and carry on the battle unaffected. You can make them even harder to defeat with the Final Guardians trait!
Skill cards include Holy Relic, Hallowed Walls and Power from Grief.
Box contains 18 gaming cards for Test of Honour and 6 metal miniatures plus bases.
