Russian versions:

http://samurai-battles.com/ru/nindzya/
http://samurai-battles.com/ru/krestyane-6415/
http://samurai-battles.com/ru/konnye-samurai-luchniki/

All RU versions have mentioned "В коробке, помимо фигурок, вы найдете подставки, флаги и два комплекта декалей для кланов Ода и Такеда."

Translation: "Inside the box, besides the figures, you will find bases, flags/banners and two sets of decals for Oda and Takeda clans".

I have found no mentions of C&C yet.

The International version of Samurai Battles expansion #1 Ninja Attack was originally planned to reach the USA sometime in May 2013. I still believe Zvezda is on schedule with this timing. While the Russian version of Ninja Attack, has a planned release date later this year. The international expansion for the USA market contains material for both Commands & Colors and Art of Tactic rules and has a suggested retail price of $49.95.

Commands & Colors Ninja Attack Contents
• 6 Units of Samurai Infantry Bowmen
• 4 Units of Samurai Cavalry Bowmen (8 cavalry runners, each with 2 cavalry figures)
• 4 Ninja figures
• 1 Unit of Peasant Irregular Infantry (6 figures in the unit)
• 2 Runners of Infantry and Cavalry Leaders
• Expansion #1 Commands & Colors Unit Summary sheet
• 8 New Historical Samurai Battles Commands & Colors Scenarios

There are a total of 18 mini-kits in the expansion. If purchased separately, 18 mini-kits at the suggested retail price of $4.00, it would cost $72.00. With all the other material also in the expansion, it seems to me, that Ninja Attack may be the most economical way to add units to your Samurai Army.

So, do I understand correctly that this tranlates to:

• 24 Samurai Infantry Bowmen units, used in C&C.
• Cavalry bowmen are only 2 figures per unit, so 4 units or are they 4 figures per unit for 2 units?
• By Runners, do you mean the sprues that the figures come on?

Six units of Samurai Infantry bowmen units means 6 Samurai units for the Commands & Colors rules. Each Samurai Infantry bowmen unit has 4 figures and one of these 4 figures will carry the unit's standard.

Cavalry units in Commands & Colors have 4 figures, each Zvezda sprue of cavalry only has 2 mounted figures, therefore it takes two sprues of cavalry to make one unit of cavalry in the Commands & Colors rules.

1 Runner does indeed equal 1 sprue.

I think this is the reason I didnt buy it at Origins this weekend. Personally, Id much rather have the Nodachi Samurai than ninjas tbh.

Either way, the exapnsion is still a great deal on the figures you get, but I think Id just rather buy my figures and build my own custom army.

I ended up buying a few boxes of the Nodachi, the Samurai Archers and the mounted archers, along wit a box of the peasant resupply unit.
