Ronin, the rulebook

Ronin is a skirmish wargame set in late 16th century feudal Japan. Although the focus is on the Sendoku Jidai, there is an appendix that has rules on other periods, including the Boshin War and Satsuma Rebellion and lists for Shinsengumi, Imperialist Troops and Shogunate Troops. 
By the way, you can see inside the book a nice picture of Bac Ninh Miniatures. ;-) 

I want to give a big thanks to Craig the author of the rulebook and Phil of Osprey Publishing for count on Bac Ninh Miniatures for this great rulebook.


  1. What is the level of skirmish? Small, with only few models, or big, with whole platoons/bands?

    1. The level of skirmish depends of the size of the game that you want to play.
      For example, 100 points is enought for a small game of Ronin playable in about an hour, and for most factions this will require fewer than ten miniatures.
