Senjutsu: Battle for Japan


I haven't actually played it yet, but I've seen the videos, read the rules, and it looks fun. Not only that, but I already have a sizeable collection of painted samurai to use!

The only problem is that Senjutsu is in 30mm and I have 40mm. No worries, I'll build my own terrain!

The battle board was mapped out using isometric graph paper to set the grid, then it was cut out of a piece of 1/2" (paper backed) foam board. Carefully flocked, the edges painted to clean up a little, and little felt pads added to "float" the board a little (and level it out and protect whatever surface it's sitting on.)

The rocks were carved from blue insulation foam and painted in a couple layers of wood glue to add durability. The shrine was simply built from scraps of wood and card. And the bamboo sticks came from a bamboo kitchen place mat.

I'll touch on the urban terrain in another post; it was created long ago for my collection, but it will certainly find some use with Senjutsu.


  1. It's good to see a new post. Nice work.

  2. I love the little bamboo stands! I never thought of doing that. Although admittedly I don't paid a lot of Asian themed miniatures. Still, it's an idea if I ever need some quick Asian terrain accents. Anyway, all of this looks really good.

  3. Excellent to see you post again. I'vealways loved your 40mm Japanese. Looks like a bit of a faff to cut out all those hexagons. Lets hope the rules are smooth enough to reward your efforts.
