    Icon6 "Le Fred's" Epic Stories!

    Shogun epic battles

    Welcome to my series of illustrated battle reports!

    The idea of shooting battles came when i was trying to mix some of the best mods around to enhance my experience to the maximum and took a few pictures to show the resulting visuals on twcenter. This is how i also realized how much passion animated the many modders around Shogun II Total War, namely Darth Mod Shogun 2 by Darth Vader, Alternative Color Clans from Demokritos and the Texture / Performance mods of SuperGhostBoy and many more mods from many other talented contributors.

    This thread is the combined effort of all their visual and gameplay improvements.

    I am not a recent Total War player. Actually, i bought my first PC to play the first Shogun in 2000. Still, Shogun II is probably my favourite Total War game because of its simple but very effective and refined gameplay, the period and culture it covers, and because it reaches even higher levels when the mods come into play. Being not a modder myself, but very enthusiastic at the work of others, this thread is my way to share the fun i have while playing, and my thanks to all who build mods for the community!

    Contents

    The thread is not very organized, but it is quite simple to navigate into it. Each battle i cover is usually split into 3 to 6 posts with pictures in spoiler tags.

    I have not decided how many battles i will do, i hope it will not become a repetitive task, but i still enjoy giving a simple battle a kind of cinematic touch. Here is the list of the battles i have illustrated:

    1- Mori / Chosokabe
    2- Date / Takeda
    3- Uesugi / Ikko Ikki
    4- Hojo / Tokugawa
    5- Shimazu / Otomo
    6- Oda / Asai
    7- Hattori / Kikkawa
    8- Choshu / Ozu (FotS)
    9- Aizu / Sendai (FotS)
    10- Taira / Ogata (RotS)
    11- Otomo / Ashikaga
    12- Date / Takeda (to be released)

    Mods

    First, i would like to mention i don't have a killer machine. Most of the battles are running smooth, even at 40 units on each side.
    I believe this is due to the performance mod i use. ETW or NTW certainly do not run as smooth as Shogun on my machine.
    I play with 1.25 multiplier on huge size units, it is perfect to me to be slightly more epic and remain playable for siege battles.

    The mods below are the ones i use, and they operate without conflicting together. The first battles include the first 1 to 4 while the latest battles include generally all of them.

    1- DarthMod Shogun - for the overall AI improvement, the ambitious melee penetration of units, the very nice visual improvements and the combo of others mods (smoke, blood, trails, bayonets etc)
    2- Alternative Clan Colors - it is impossible for me to turn it off, it is too good to play with it - it is comprehensive, historical source based and already released. New version coming in soon.
    3- Performance & retexture mods - dramatically improves performance, unit texture, blood quality and gloss rendering, i have no idea how it is achieved but it works perfectly !
    4- Daimyos and Generals - replaces the generic vanilla Daimyos by unique expertly redesigned clan leader models, in battles and on the campaign map
    5- Horse & saddle retexture - graphical improvement of the horse and saddle texture, lovely if you like better looking horses.
    6- Boshin war & Modern army uniform - for tweaking your FotS experience with improved faction colors and alternative uniform and equipment for your soldiers.
    7- Bow retexture - available in the thread, get rid of the flashy red bows and get a nice light beige color instead
    8- RotS playable clan recolors - my own in house mod to enjoy better the RotS battles
    9- Portuguese Terco Variety - much better looking Portuguese soldiers for the Otomo clan with many model variations
    10- The Sheathe and the blade - add scabbard for katana swords, immersive graphical improvement
    11- Traditional Shogunate daimyos - for using samurai armors and uniforms in FotS for the traditional leaders like Matsudaira Katamori etc
    12- Faction color tint removal - for suppressing the artificial colors of units when zooming out in battles

    To be shown in future battles:

    1- Vastator Unit Style - very impressive variations on unit armor, complete re shape of some vanilla units - compatible with Alternative Clan Colors.

    Thank you,

    UESUGI / IKKO IKKI

    Winter 1580, South of Etchu province.

    It's been a year since Uesugi Kenshin died, and before he could fully unify Japan under his rule. Divisions appear among his heirs, and war rages between his former followers and allies. Kenshin was revered as a religious man, but since he is no more, religious turmoil rises. Naoe Kanetsugu now faces a rebellion of Ikko Ikki Buddhist monks.

    Winter is harsh. The Uesugi army of Naoe Kanetsugu stands still in the wind and the snow. Uesugi soldiers are enthusiastic and still don't know they are about to meet death on this day.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 








    The Uesugi army consists of highly skilled troops, mostly pole arms and composite bows. A high number of mounted samurai is protecting their flanks.

    Facing them, the Ikko Ikki moves steadily. Their army counts a large number of ashigaru, determined ronin and many mounted battle monks.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read:

    Victory !

    A breach appears in the Uesugi battle line, and many Ikko Ikki tropps are about to overcome their opponents. The moment is critical.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 




    A first battle turns favorably for the Uesugi. Some Ikko Ikki cavalry units are finally routed, and it allows the surviving Uesugi troops to flank the main melee battles.
    Tired ashigaru do not resist their counter charge and start routing. The Uesugi are on the way to engage the Ikko Ikki missile units !

    Marvelous show, le_fred! Gee, it's almost more exciting to read and watch the tale of your battles than playing any myself, at least from what I remember (my PC having been broken for so long time now). And Darth's tweak for unit sizes really adds to the drama. Thanks a lot for sharing these great images!

    HOJO / TOKUGAWA

    1590 - Sagami province, near Odawara Castle. Toyotomi Hideyoshi's campaign to eliminate the Hojo threat during its rise to power is unsuccessful. Tokugawa Ieyasu, one of Hideyoshi's top generals, leads a small modernized army including many teppo units and finally pulls Hojo Ujimasa out of his castle.

    Note: Darth effects are used in this battle, so the blood mod of SuperGhostBoy is disabled for compatibility issues.

    Hojo Ujimasa vast army is deployed on the Nothern part of the river. His scouts have informed him that the Tokugawa army counts only a reasonable force, but he is well aware of Ieyasu talents in misleading his opponents...
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 








    The Hojo army counts many veteran melee traditional units.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 










    Facing them, the Tokugawa army looks very mobile, with a limited core of melee units and a few units of light mounted gunners deployed on the flanks and hidden in bushes and woods.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 










    On each flank of the Tokugawa army, but far behind the main body of troops, gunners and spear units are hidden. They are waiting for the Hojo cavalry that will probably try to flank the main body of the army.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 






    In the center, Ieyasu is inspecting his troops, adjusting the formation and dispatching orders. Suddenly, the army moves forward to meet the Hojo.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 












    The Tokugawa's advance is halted a hundred meters from the river while skirmishers take position. They don't secure the river banks, keeping a safe distance from the Hojo.

    Smoke and guns

    Ujimasa scouting cavalry units have discovered the Tokugawa mounted skirmishers on the flanks. Ieyasu has once again proven deceitful. The chase has now started, it is time to make him pay his treachery !

    Death of a clan

    The main battle is a disaster for the Tokugawa. Their units have been wiped out and routed by the combined use of a superior Hojo infantry and artillery units.
    The field is flagged in blue and in blood. Ieyasu is only a few meters from the Hojo units which progress quickly and take control of the field. Ieyasu has to re position himself farther from the fights.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 






    On the right flank, the Tokugawa cavalry is in position for a powerful push. Lone Hojo units are scattered one by one.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 








    The right flank charge is launched. All units now converge to break with force and speed the main battle.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 






    The wavering Hojo break for some of them, but the impact is not as devastating as expected.
    Cavalry units are slowed by the river, but they also now cut any retreat option to the Hojo.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 






    From afar, the battle seems very disputed, with a main battle line dominated by the Hojo and their rear pushed by the Tokugawa cavalry.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 




    The flanking maneuver progresses slowly, the hammer is about to hit the anvil.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 










    The Tokugawa don't break in the center, the casualties are atrocious for the Hojo. Ujimasa is about to make things personal and raises his tessen.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 






    The Tokugawa cavalry has crossed the river and launch several charges in the Hojo infantry lines.
    The battle seems lost for the Hojo.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 










    Ieyasu looks satisfied, he is starring quietly at the battlefield, protected by a couple of gunner units.
    But his victory is not yet complete, there is still an important task to perform to get rid of the Hojo.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read:

    Autumn wind of eve
    Blow away the clouds that mass

    O'er the moon's pure light.

    And the mists that cloud our mind

    Do thou sweep away as well.

    (雨雲の おほへる月も 胸の霧も はらひにけりな 秋の夕風)

    Now we disappear
    Well, what must we think of it?

    From the sky we came

    Now we may go back again

    That's at least one point of view.

    (我が身今 消ゆとやいかに 思ふべき 空より来たり 空へ帰れば)
    (吹きとふく 風な恨みそ 花の春 紅葉も残る 秋あらばこそ)

    Fantastic! Some of the best unedited images I've seen. Had to provide a link to this place from my thread now.

    How do you prepare for the battles, Fred? They're custom battles, right, and if so, how do you determine what units each army is comprised of?
