This isn't one of them. No! But! No- listen. I hope you're enjoying our current Pan vs Ares campaign? I want to plan the next one based in Medieval Japan and make it historically based. But I need more gods! I'm on the lookout for a huge dragon-.
I'd tried researching "Japanese Gods" and got nowhere fast. Then, bored, I cut and pasted the tittle from the Japanese list PDF. This is what I got-
Fujin, God of the wind
Fujin features the bag-of-wind as does his Greek counterpart. No great skill to add this in place of a weapon as most come with weapon choice. this is my choice from my collection, sorry not the best picture.
Raijin, God of Thunder and Japanese Heavy Metal
Some of the pictures show him with a double tetsubo, but I think I'll go more "Thor" with double hammers. Does look a bit like our Gene https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=gene+simmons+from+kiss&hl=en-GB&rlz=1T4MXGB_enGB534GB535&tbm=isch&imgil=64MYW7rugo3KuM%253A%253BX5LmPNnk4wWCTM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww.hollywoodreporter.com%25252Fearshot%25252Fkiss-bringing-football-team-la-608148&source=iu&pf=m&fir=64MYW7rugo3KuM%253A%252CX5LmPNnk4wWCTM%252C_&biw=1365&bih=563&dpr=0.75&usg=__c3NYnIPyqBnmcJzpe8gYGckJQOA%3D&ved=0CD4QyjdqFQoTCNu26Ouj2MYCFYLWFAodFdgFwQ&ei=GMajVdvKOYKtU5Wwl4gM#imgrc=64MYW7rugo3KuM%3A&usg=__c3NYnIPyqBnmcJzpe8gYGckJQOA%3D
Susanoo, God of storms and the sea
Again with the hammering blow. So I think this one:
The rest were unsatisfactory searches. For the rest I would suggest either normal or larger scale humans. Splintered Light's Chinese pack will also yield some useful types: http://ep.yimg.com/ay/yhst-133546587642587/china-collection-set-3.gif
For the three above, can I suggest this range: http://www.dixon-minis.com/shop/samurai-25mm/#sub-legends-of-Nippon
I first bought these in the 80's, way back in my 25mm days and the RPG game Bushido. I bought this lot a few years ago when Ganesha were going to bring out a Japanese set. As per standard they got a quick coat and a bit more!
|This one is a good fit with the 15mm.co Oni, a choice for Dai Oni|
|This armoured beasti is my favourite, I intend to use as the Dai Oni with Splintered Light's armoured hobgoblins as his not-Samurai. http://ep.yimg.com/ay/yhst-133546587642587/hobgoblin-warband-3.gif|
|Same chaps, different weapon|
|Same chap, different weapon - would make good wind-god as the bag would fit bagpipe like under his arm.|
