Yesterday I received my shipment of the "Ito" - the fifth faction for GCT Studios amazing skirmish game of Bushido. They ran an Indiegogo campaign a few months ago which you can view here:
I'm not going to go too much into what Bushido or the Ito are in this review - have a read of that page or head over to:
Also look up GCT studios on Facebook for photos of greens and upcoming information. This is an exciting time for Bushido - a new faction, another set of incredible releases for the existing factions and hopefully forthcoming rulebook, more faction dice, tokens etc. 2013 is shaping up to be a great year for the game! In this review I will look at what I received from the Indiegogo campaign and show you just how incredible these models are.
Dice & Cards
First up dice - normally in Bushido starters you get ten black and white dice and a red die (defence and attack). This is GCT's first foray into Faction dice. They are a good size and contain five green and five green/black dice. The six on the dice is the Ito faction logo. The dice are bigger than the normal starter dice at 16mm compared to 8mm. Not much more to say about them but they look nice and will be good to roll the colours for my team! I will definitely be getting more faction specific dice in the future being the hobby tart I am.
For the Profile cards they look great and are in the "New Dawn" rules format which I feel is a great improvement. The starter set cards are in a special Ito design. These are an Indiegogo campaign backer thing only, but as you can see in the pic they are very nice and hopefully an indication of card sets being made available seperately to movels and in different styles for the other factions too.
These models will come available over the next few months and give some nice options as well as being some of my favourite miniatures ever!
