I had a question asked to me by a freind who was wondering who served the Imagawa clan around the 1550-1570 time frame. If they made it into the 1570s.

I imagine that he was meaning senior retainer ...

One of his general's Katakura Kagetsuna, there COULD be at least 34 sets of banners!

Shocked

That is all.

It's your army, so you can depict Masakage's army your way. As to colored bands, again it's your army. If you are pleased that's what matters.


Right now, I personally would apply this rule for A ...

At least we both get something out of it. Very Happy

After Takeda Yoshinobu "died" did anyone inherit his heraldry?

Mounted samurai were a minority in numbers, even with the Takeda. They were small in numbers (average 20-30) in each contingent. To put together a sizable mounted force they would have to be taken fro ...

He could then have Takeda Nobukado under him with a white on blue contingent. Under Nobu ...

Thanks for doing all of this by the way.

I have another question, this time concerning Takeda Nobukado.

Would the colored bands at the bottom of his follower's sashimono represent different unit ...

That more makes me wonder what he was doing when he fell off. I mean it is easy to die falling off a horse running at full speed or one that is jumping a fence and so forth.

I am convinced that in the case of William that he very well may have just been clumsy anyway. He also fell coming ashore with his invading army in England.

So Naito Kiyonaga is in no way associated with Naito Masatoyo then. Confused

I thought I had tracked down Masatoyo's brother.

Interesting, I would have thought the Naito would have had the mon in some way on some of the followers. I doubt it At least it will be easy to paint.
