In ancient Japan, the samurai warriors were a living symbol of honor. Each samurai had their own specially made armor, and symbol to fly high on their flags while going into battle, as well as a katana to fight by their side. The Sengoku Samurai each have their own unique looking armor, that is tied to their name- no matter how many centuries have passed. These figures capture the beauty of the yoroi armor, as well as the flags and katana that these samurai fought along side with. Even on a much smaller scale these figures emulate the details and time that has gone into the making of the yoroi armor.

About the Samurai: 

Honda Tadakatsu served along side of Tokugawa Ieyasu, and was one of the Tokugawa Four Heavenly Kings. As a reward of his service, Tokugawa promoted from daimyou of the Ootaki clan to the Kuwana clan, allowing him to take charge of more men in the process. Honda was widely known and was even complimented by Oda Nobunaga and Toyotomi Hideyoshi. he was also referred as "The Warrior who surpassed Death itself", due to the fact that he never suffered from a major injury from war, despite going through over 100 battles within his lifetime.
