Ashigaru are drawn from the ranks of peasants, pressed into service as
part of their oaths of fealty. The Ashigaru are named for the armor
they wear, a light and inexpensive armor construct of laced metal
plates, shin guards, and a light padded helmet. Typically these suits
of armor are passed down from father to son, for though the armor is
inexpensive to create, it nevertheless represents a significant amount
of honor and esteem for a family. Assembled into formations the
Ashigaru are typically divided into units under their clan’s banners.
Each unit usually consists of warriors from the same village, the
Ashigaru are typically in the heat of battle, for they form the bulk of
the Bushido armies.
