Saint, I didn't know where to put this thread. But this is information, and to those, important information.

It should be on the History section, it's ok don't worry about it, it should be moved there any time now :)

OT: Interesting that of all that you posted, Masamune, who apparently had an average high, was the only one to be portrayed as a small guy, with a bit of a Napoleon complex, in Koei games. I'm talking about SW1 of course. Napoleon himself also had an average height for a man of his time, however, he is remembered in comedies, cartoons and to a lot of people, as a small guy too. Funny how things turn out.

I'm really surprised about Masakage's height, he was the leader of the Red Cavalry and 130cm to 140cm? That's funny. :lol:

As an aside, Mateo, did you mean Ikeda Terumasa instead of Ikage Terumasa?

Kinda disappointed that my favorites Kenshin Uesugi and Masamune Date were average in height.
"I became the object of the most damning slanders, in consequence of which my great exploits have been ignored. I, Yoshitsune, though innocent of all offences, have incurred blame; though worthy of honour and guilty of no mistake, I have fallen into his Lordship's disfavour... My armour and helmet were my pillow; my bow and arrows were my trade..."
