Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon by Glitterwolf

Recommended Posts



New Friends.


While Mariko was sent on a recon mission, Yoshigaru and Master Nurin stayed in the woods with Sojobo.

Yoshigaru's friends were the last living members of the Toda Clan, they  filled their days with training and hunting.

By now they had gotten used to see Oni and magical beasts who were now part of their army.

The rest of the Toda Clan had risen from the dead and didn't need to train anymore. They just waited till they were needed again.


Yoshigaru wanted to attack the Kenmu Castle as soon as possible, but Master Nurin had adviced against it.

First wait till Mariko returns with more information, we can't attack the main Castle just yet.

We will have to be satisfied with attacks on smaller outposts and villages!

Of course Yoshigaru understood the wisdom of Master Nurin's words, he needed to keep his anger in check.

Oh, how he wanted to make Lord Kenmu pay for what he did!

He would wait, he would be wise, but when the time comes the whole Kenmu Clan will pay! He thought.


The next morning he was woken up early by Sojobo, Yoshigaru still wondered about the Oni blood in is own veins, after all Sojobo was his uncle and his sister had the ability to turn into a kitsune.

Did he himself had any supernatural powers? He hadn't noticed anything strange so far.

Well? Are you awake yet? Sojobo asked with a smile, I have a surprise for you!

A surprise? Yoshigaru asked, he got out of his tent, what is it?


Sojobo laughed, I'm sure this will make you happy!

Just don't be scared!

Scared? I'm a Samurai! Yoshigaru stated.

Master Nurin had joined them, what's this all about he asked.


Alright, Sojobo said, now prepare yourself, I've brought some friends who are willing to join us against Lord Kenmu.

By now you're used to the Oni and Magical Creatures of the Woods, these new friends are also not human.

Please treat them with respect, they're a proud warrior tribe, do not invoke their anger.

Their leader is an old friend of mine from the mountains, his people are part Oni part Ogre.

Despite their appearance they have always fought evil.

Yoshigaru nodded, I welcome all friends in this fight, no matter how they look or what they are!


Good, Sojobo said.

I want you to meet my friends, Sojobo whistled and a young beautiful girl stepped out of the woods, Yoshigaru noticed her horns and her inhuman skintone but she was beautiful nonetheless.

Meet Tsuki, Sojobo said.

She's the tribe's storyteller, half Human half Oni, raised by the tribe as one of their own.

Tsuki hid her face behind her fan and giggled, he's a handsome warrior, she said.

Yoshigaru didn't know how to react and Sojobo laughed, don't be shy my friend, she's just being friendly.


Yoshigaru nodded, my apologies Lady Tsuki, I forgot my manners because of your beauty, I didn't mean to insult you.

Tsuki smiled and bowed, no need for apologies mighty warrior! 

Now, be prepared to meet our leader! Lord Yoshigruzu!

She let out a cry and then a sound like thunder was heard, Yoshigaru could have sworn he saw some lightning sparks coming from the woods when suddenly an enormous beast appeared.

What's that? He asked, That, Tsuki replied, is Warugo, Lord Yoshigruzu's Warbeast.

The creature stormed out of the woods and stopped right in front of Yoshigaru.

Hail Yoshigaru Lord of the Toda! The huge demonlike ogre on Warugo's back yelled.


He dismounted and looked down on the samurai.

Yoshigaru looked up to the towering figure before him, Hail Yoshigruzu Lord of the Mountain Tribe, he answered.

Sojobo smiled, good, now let's meet the others, the tribe arrived, some where twice as big as a human being, others even bigger, one giant even had two heads!

Goraku! Sojobo said, so glad to see you!

This is the Wizard of the tribe, Sojobo said.


Now let's eat and drink and discuss the situation!

Hope Sojobo has stocked up recently; these oni look like they could rack up quite the grocery bill! 
Good stuff.

      Female Oni Grunt from Artisan Guild.
      I printed it on the Elegoo Mars
      Part of my Project:
      Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon

      3D printed on my Elegoo Mars.
      Design by Artisan Guild.
      Abyss Demon this one came as a sample for presupported minis without his hands, so I printed two claws from the Death Tide Jurakin Set and upscaled those to 125% to fit the Demon.
      He's part of my Horde of the North Project.
      WIP here:
      The Horde marches South to the civilized lands, ready to plunder and pillage.
      Led by the mighty Mumlak all barbarians, beastmen, orcs and trolls join the Horde.
      The Horde grows, sometimes a group gets impatient and infighting is common, Mumlak cares not.
      There are enough warriors to conquer the Realm of Men.
      A Shaman has performed a dark ritual and summoned a demon to join their cause.
      Full of rage the clawed abomination enters the mortal realm, ready to kill.
      Amused Mumlak watches the scene, wondering if the shaman will be able to control the demon.

      Pathfinder Red Dragon #60028 is a hefty beastie and I definitely did not paint him red. Instead I tried a rainbow piece for Pride 2020 (finished 8/1/2020). Also my first painted model posted here. Pardon my photography skills. I used cut up Caryatid column #77378 for a bit of terrain on the base. My biggest metal model to date.

      In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon.  I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body.  I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with. 
      I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the wing to the table while I painted with the other.  It was not the most convenient method of painting.  He was also very prickly... very, very prickly! 
      because its such a big base, I wanted to provide some interest for the game.  I used the old road stamp from Basius to generate some pieces of broken road amongst a clearing in early fall.  I was thinking of adding a smudge of snow but if I did it would conflict with the ruined stone.
      Overall though I like how he came out and I really like the results on his tail and his crown of horns. 
      Hope everyone like him.  This is still tabletop quality as I have been trying to produce quantity over quality.

      Today's mini is a blast from the past, Reaper's casting of the Heritage Red Dragon.

      Because of his seemingly furry chest/stomach, he is called the hippie dragon.

      He is one of many miniature purchases from the old Lone Star Comics. I raided the store for weird miniatures. The had a lot of bagged Reaper minis for sale.
