The Bushido bowmen learn their craft at an early age, typically
starting off as hunters to supplement the diet of rice and vegetables.
As skill with the bow is a primary requisite to become accepted into
the ranks of the samurai, bowmen come from the ranks of not only the
peasants, but from the ranks of the freemen and nobles alike. Trained
in the usage of the longbow, Bushido bowmen also typically carry a
back-up weapon, used in case of personal combat, most preferring the
use of two short swords as they are used to using both hands in battle,
and they don't usually have a shield handy. Different archers from
different clans tend to use different fletchings and arrowheads, though
only the Clan of the Shadow Fox will use arrows dipped in various
poisons, as the other clans view poison weapons as dishonorable. Sold in blister of 2 figs with 1 pose.
