Well i shouldnt have said that because yes it did change alot, it made way to the age of massed infantry formations, if you notice after nobunaga most diamyo switched to mass deploys of cheap ashigaru and long pikes (more so than they already did) and many mounted samurai actually dismounted to fight. But as for nagashino only about 1000 to 1500 guns were used, and what historical sites are these? because i get everything from japanese BOOKS account the era, there is a site just like this dedicated to sengoku era talk on http://www.samuraiarchives.com we talked about this exact issue and many there will point you in the direction im trying to get at.

Hey dymios! Are you a member over at the citadel? I don't recognize the name....

Anyway, my favorite Samurai is Takeda Shingen. Hence my username.

Yep, I'm a noob. I already posted a little tidbit in the intro thread. I know what you mean about SA. I barely ever log on over there anymore either.

Hm i to first liked takeda shingen when i first started getting into reading about the era, but the more and more i when in it the more i found nobunaga more interesting and the more he appealed to me.

My favorite samurai of the period would be --

Miyamoto Musashi, Mr. Go Rin No Sho himself -- he was the master of the Niten-ryu technique and undefeated. His famous duel with Sasaki Kojiro and many others regarding him beating people to death with bokken is classic. I read his book and also put my own analyzation on his methods in how you can possibly apply to everyday life in this thread.

Ii Naomasa, this guy and his red armor -- I even hate fighting him on Samurai Warriors and often recruit him into my army on Empires. He was successful at Sekigahara.

I've also been a fan of the Yagyu and Sanada clans.

I'll admit, Nobunaga's story is indeed more interesting than Shingen's, but the Tiger's still my favorite. :wink:

Indeed the tiger is always appealing specially his fierce rivalry/freindship with Kenshin.

my biggest complaint with the sengoku era is the portrayal of nobunaga being evil -_- he was actually a good person when he wasnt under one of his mood swings.

II Naomasa is one of my favorites as well. Although, he wasn't the first to adopt the all-red armor look, he was definitely the most famous for it! Sanada Masayuki is another one I admire. He's often overlooked in favor of Yukimura, but I would argue he was >Yukimura.
