They’re finally here! Bushido Chits!
Many of you have been waiting a couple of months for me to finally publish these. Honestly, I was waiting until I had taken photos of each colour and material option, but have decided I’ll do that as I fulfil orders for each of those colours.
I’ve been working for a long time on a full set of Bushido chits (I refer to them collectively as chits due to counters, markers, and tokens each being distinct things in-game).
- Markers Set: 48 double-sided Markers
- Counters Set: 34 double-sided Counters
- Tokens Set: 18 double-sided Tokens
- Ki tokens Set: 35 double-sided Ki Tokens
Each is available in budget MDF, a selection of coloured acrylics and, my personal favourite, bamboo.
Each type of chit has a specific shape, to help identify them quickly in your storage container. Markers are triangular, counters are rectangular, and tokens are round. Many people, like myself, already use cheap Chinese New Year coins for Ki Tokens, so I’ve split them into their own set.
They are also all double-sided, to minimise the amount of time you spend looking for the one you need.
Translucent and fluorescent acrylic options will be available at a later date, but will have to be single-sided, for obvious reasons. You can also expect faction-specific sets to follow, though these won’t duplicate anything in this wave of sets.
I’ve bundled the sets together into the Chits Set, consisting of one of each set except the Ki Tokens, and the Megaset, which includes the Ki Tokens.
The MDF sets are line-engraved very simply, and are easy to read. They could be painted for additional clarity, of course.
The Bamboo sets are engraved with deeper and wider details and shouldn’t require any painting, thanks to the charring of the wood.
The Acrylic sets are engraved in the same way as the Bamboo sets but, without the charring, this doesn’t create the same clarity. I recommend painting these with a contrasting colour. The masking is left on to aid this. Any hobby paint will do. I experimented with spray-painting below, and that seemed to work, though you’ll want to do a couple of coats and may need to tidy a little with isopropyl alcohol or a similar solvent.
Bushido Player Aids
The much-delayed ZoC rings clip on to a miniature’s base to show a 180 arc to the front of the miniature, with a notch to show the front. These can be handy to adjust the arc during a game for those situations where a model’s weapon prevents proper alignment, or even if you just hate marking the arcs by hand.
Joining these are two card-sized plastic solutions for Kimiko Hoshi’s Ice Patch and Kaito’s Tilled Field, from the Minimoto Clan and Temple of Ro-Kan factions, respectively.
3D Alien Worlds Scenery
A few newly-added products. The rice barn is the first of the buildings . Farmhouses should follow in a month or so. Buildings like this do take a long time to print, so please bear that in mind when ordering.
I’ve also customised a host of ruined variations on the stone walls pieces. These ruined versions make the stone walls more usable for games played on smaller boards, such as Bushido.
