So guys, what's the background behind Ikari Company?
Is their scheme orange + blue?
Ikari are run by the eponymous Colonel Ikari, they're almost completely lacking in scruples and care little for legality. Many of their members are Japanese renegades who were left behind or ostracised by the return of the Kuge/Bushido but also couldn't stay in Yu Jing, many of their other members are scum so bad other companies won't take them. Full background is in the Uprising book.
Colonel Ikari is pictured in the book in dark blue with orange trim, but like most mercenary NA2s there's no official scheme.
Unfortunately I don't have the book, but thanks for explanation man! Started Ikari last week, so I'm fully on a sort of hype train lol
I love that blue orange sheme as well. but i suck at painting so I am using Turbo Dorks 'Let them to cake' color shift paint. Its a dark blue that shifts to a orangish/red.
If you you can get your hands in the uprising book I'd highly recommend it. The Ikari company has some pretty cool fluff especially around their founding. Basically Colonel Ikari was an upstanding honorable soldier of the JSA/State Empire who had 3 kids who also followed along in his footsteps into the military. His 1st son was killed because his unit was refused reinforcements. His other son died during a suicide charge to take a heavily fortified position just to make the weekly reports look better. His daughter was forced to commit seppuku after a terribly planned operation gets botched and to save face the JSA offer up her head. Ikari acted as her second and actually swung the killing blow to take his daughters head. Then after the funeral his wife dies from sadness and the colonel becomes disillusioned and snaps. Loyalty to the state empire and the Japanese puppet emperor got him nothing except for a dead family.
So cool man, thank you so much. I'll try to get the book then!
