Charging on Horseback
Classic Historical Statue Series
Naomasa distinguished himself from other generals with his courage and also political ability, earning him the prestigious role as one of the Four Guardians serving and protecting the legendary Tokugawa Ieyasu, Shogun and one of the major unifiers of Japan.
The name of the Naomasa was highly regarded by Tokugawa Ieyasu, so it is no surprise that his sons Naotsugu and Naotaka succeeded him in his service and title.
His family, like the Tokugawa, had originally been retainers of the Imagawa clan.
Naomasa's finest hour was to come at the Battle of Sekigahara, where his unit outpaced those of other generals such as Fukushima Masanori, drawing the "first blood" of that battle.
Ii Naomasa's premature death in 1602 has been widely blamed on the wound he received at Sekigahara. Naomasa was highly regarded by Tokugawa Ieyasu, so it is no surprise that his sons Naotsugu and Naotaka succeeded him in his service and title. However, Naotsugu managed to anger Ieyasu by refusing to take part in his campaign to reduce the Toyotomi clan stronghold at Osaka. Nonetheless, the Ii remained influential in Japanese politics throughout the Edo period.
Shuurushi Coated Body Armor
This product is produced in a red color armor as Noamasa was known the red color in the history.
Ii Naomasa also became known for the distinctive armor he adorned his troops in, and that he wore himself. Painted almost entirely in blood-red, Naomasa took his inspiration for this from the legendary Takeda Clan, aiming to make his warriors look fierce and intimidating. This tactic worked, and his troops became known as "The Red Devils", with their Naomasa himself being called Akaoni, or "Red Ogre".
Polystone is a compound made up largely of polyurethane resin mixed with powdered stone additives that give it added weight and the porcelain or "stone-like" feel that results in the materials' name itself. Compared with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polystone is durable and highly effective at maintaining a sharp paint finish.
