The Ikko-ikki were a rebellious group motivated by religious doctrine. They consisted of peasants, merchants, monks and even low-ranking samurai who all followed a militant sect of Buddhism led by a charismatic priest called Rennyo.

In 1486 the Ikko-ikki staged a violent uprising in Kaga province, overthrowing the governor and taking control for themselves – the first time in Japanese history that commoners had ruled a province. 

The movement had thousands of dedicated followers – fanatical Sohei warrior monks as well as simple peasant farmers seeking an escape from their lives of toil and oppression.

Miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled.
