Samurai Fantasy Warfare: Ronin (1)

A while ago, wanting to try an other skirmish rule, I bought Craig Woodfield's Ronin from Osprey Publishing. As you can read it on the website the rules enable to play in medieval Japan : "Set in an age of feuding samurai, wandering swordsmen and fearless warrior monks, Ronin is a skirmish wargame that captures the flavour and excitement of such Akira Kurosawa films as Seven Samurai and Yojimbo".

You can play "historical" with, for example, North Star figures.

Since I plan to play in a fantasy world I found on eBay Onis from Legend of the 5 Rings AEG Miniatures.
For the moment most of my figures are Amanojaku (Goblins).

Most of the Amanojaku are wearing Heavy armor (20 points). One is without armor (14 points) and the other with no armor and a yari (17 points).
There is also a sorcerer, the boss, with the following characteristics: no armor (14 points),  shoot 3 (+3), Fireball (as Teppo, +3) = 20 points.
