They only got the buildings, none of the miniatures.


How do they match up with Pendraken figures?
The buildings have been scaled to 1:160 we believe, so they will be a touch smaller than the buildings we produce ourselves, but we don't think the difference is enough to be noticeable. With these being for the Samurai period it's unlikely that you'd be mixing in any of our buildings anyway, and with this range being so comprehensive, we won't need to add any extra buildings in the future.

What's available?
There are 37 buildings in total, including:
- Dojo and walls
- Village houses and an Inn
- Shinto Temple and gate and bell
- Modular Castle with walls, towers and gates
- Osaka Castle
- Modular fencing
- Horiyuji Temple complex including a pagoda and halls
- Monastery with fences and gate sections

When will they be on sale again?
These are almost all resin products so they will be getting forwarded down to John at Ironclad for him to check over. Some of them may need new production moulds but we won't know that until they've all been checked. We'd hope to have the first batch in production around Salute time, but we'll keep everyone updated as we progress.

Will you be changing anything?
There are no plans to change any of these models at all.

Did you buy the Castle Arts Japanese miniatures range?
We didn't buy the miniatures range, only the buildings. Our own range could do with some work so we've decided to completely overhaul our Samurai figures with brand new sculpts and more pose variety. This job has been scheduled for April/May/June so the new figures will be coming online around the same time as the last of the buildings comes into production.

I can see some of those having uses with 6mm Epic to 10mm AT8. 10mm is close enough to 6-8mm especially when it comes to structures.

This is excellent news - really looking forward to these. I have seen them used with 6mm figures and they match up perfectly well :

This site gives some idea (as well as being a source of almost un-natural inspiration !
