The Emperor is weak, challenged by the might of the Shogun. The Clan lords align themselves with one side or the other, taking advantage of the turmoil to settle old grudges and seize new territory. Their loyal samurai, consummate warriors trained in the art of the blade, must do their bidding without question. Test of Honour is a skirmish wargame played with roughly 5-20 models on each side. Players select their force before each game based around a samurai hero along with one or two loyal samurai companions and a variety of clan soldiers. Battles are swift and bloody as players activate and act with a single of a group of their warriors - by drawing representative tokens from a bag, moving and fighting to achieve the objective of the scenario, whether that be cutting down the enemy, defending an outpost or finding and protecting a spy. Play through the scenarios in sequence to tell a tale of bitter clan rivalry, betrayal and revenge! With each battle, your samurai will learn new skills, and perhaps even take the shameful path of deceit and trickery to gain victory - such choices are the ultimate test of honour.
