    There is an issue, I've read, about the heavy o' sode (shoulder-pads) on kachi for practical reasons, you'll notice in depictions that heavy infantry have much smaller shoulder-pads for mobility reasons, the shimazu and Oda daimyo shoulder pads would make perfect replacements.
    Do you mean like this?
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Also in more than one depiction they're bare-footed: that'd be a good illustration of their relative poverty and eagerness for war, casting aside basic comforts in favour of war-gear.
    Hm, I know what you mean but the closest thing Ive come to bare-foot is some sort of samurai "sandals".

    How about a naval warrior monk-hero unit on a medium sized ship?
    Thank you! I will do that. What about regular warrior monks(renamned to Sohei actually) on light, medium and heavy ships? More morale and some other "weaker" things like speed or fighting capabilities?

    That one too, but the one in my head is flat.

    Bare foot levies were in your first post, but anyway, it doesn't matter, it's just a minor idea..

    That sounds good, but the availibilty of such units should be very limited, perhaps only available from settlements: Suo and Ise because they have a port and monastery.

    Oh, I didn't realize that. I will check it out how it looks with the rest of the armour. Regarding the recruiting of "boat monks" one can require both a port and a regional special monastery, if it exists in RotS.

    Excellent.

    Ok, cool. The reason I suggest thusly is because of how centralised warrior monk sects were, mostly around Yamato (miidera) and the significant role their loyalty played throughout the war.

    Kiba Spear Samurai

    These wealthy mounted Samurai are armed with the uncommon spear.
    They are a very good counter against other cavalry and good against infantry. Take care of them because they are rare!

    Chinese Traders

    They have come from China to trade. The crew have pretty low morale being a long way from home but they are descent in close combat.
    Very cheap to buy and quickly recruited. Since they are merchants they demand alot of koku in upkeep. Can be used on trade-nodes.

    Yes I am still working on it However, I will release it as a new mod with a new(and certainly better) name and this is why: At first this was just going to be a regular update to the mod but I have removed stuff and replaced it with mostly new. This "update" will be as similar to the new mod that Radious mods are to Darth vaders mod for example. I will start a new thread soon enough. Just to clarify: the "unit previews" that I have made recently will be a part of the new mod.

    That ship has European sails - do any of the ships have Chinese junk type sails as they would have historically?

    All available models have "western" style rigging, but the necessity of masts and sail from historical references out-weighs that technical over-sight, it's fine as long as not too many people bring it up in threads........ I'm not pointing fingers, finger pointing get's us nowhere........ Yoshitsune1189

    The newer versions of this mod are "a tale of the Heike and the Genji".

    Well, I would not say new versions, rather a new direction that is more hsitorical accurate. So 'A Tale of the Heike and the Genji' is it's own mod really.
