I also tried grenade troops for the first time last night and they are great for lowering morale and breaking up units, especially rebels. If I can smash the Satsuke then I have a good chance of taking on the reigning Shogunate. I am moving an additional army towards their territory now to smash them [hopefully].

Like you're talking a unit of a hundred Grasshoppers that all look like David Carradine (pre auto erotic incident).I think the devs have struck a decent balance between historical accuracy and playability. Militant monks were fanatics who relied on their faith (shown as very high morale and charge bonus) who'd spend weeks before battle conducting elaborate curse rituals (shown in game as an enemy morale lowering war cry.). They were lightly armoured (weak defence rating).I'd like to see either larger default unit sizes or a lowered recruitment cost (and better speed and endurance on the battlefield to defect thelack of armour.). Other than that, I think they're portrayed well.
