Historical Overview Section

Yayoi Japanese 500BC-275AD.
The Yayoi period was an Iron Age culture traditionally dated 300 BC to 300 AD. It is named after the neighbourhood of Tokyo where archaeologists first uncovered artifacts and features from that era. The earliest written records about people in Japan are from Chinese sources from this period. Wa, the Japanese pronunciation of an early Chinese name for Japan, was mentioned in 57 AD; the Na state of Wa received a golden seal from the Emperor Guangwu of the Later Han Dynasty. Early Chinese historians described Wa as a land of hundreds of scattered tribal communities rather than the unified land with a 700-year tradition as laid out in the 8th-century work Nihon Shoki, a partly mythical, partly historical account of Japan which dates the foundation of the country at 660 BC. Archaeological evidence also suggests that frequent conflicts between settlements or statelets broke out in the period. Many excavated settlements were moated or built at the tops of hills. Headless, human skellingtons discovered in Yoshinogari site are regarded as typical examples. In the coastal area of the Inland Sea, stone arrowheads are often found among funerary objects.

Using the army in FoG

  • The army is pretty pants to be honest. It appears never to have been used in competition.
  • About the best you can conjure up is an undrilled MF army with lots of offensive spearmen, which are unlikley to cause that much offence to any possible opponents

15mm Manufacturers supplying figures for this army

As well as a handful of pre-Samurai Japanese armies out there, probably the more barbarian-ey types from contemporary CHinese and Korean armies might be appropriate. A listing of who supplies what can be found in my 15mm Suppliers directory .
You can see some of the figures in the Ancients Photo Gallery also on this site
