Last Wednesday Rob D gave me these at the Axes and Ales Club Meeting.
The box consists of 30 Japanese Infantry that can cover the Japanese Army from Manchuria to Okinawa. I wanted to try and have these ready for next week meeting so have puched myself to put them together and start painting.
I have completed a “Command Unit”. Whilst not strictly what Bolt Action would consider a command group it consists of the platoon leader, an ensign bearer and a bugler.
The rest of the figures are assembled, undercoated and I have started painting them.
From left to right, a second standard bearer, 12 infantry, 2 knee mortars for squads, 2 squad leaders, 2 light machine gun crews, 3 knee mortars for a grenadier squad, suicide anti-tank team, and 2 SMG’s. This will make two complete squads with lots of alternatives. I will need two more boxes a light tank, an armoured car, support options, and a 75mm light howitzer to complete the army I am after.
The army list I am working on completing is
As this army is not a main priority I will continue to pick things up at “Bring and buys” and when on sale.
Thanks to Easy Army for this download.
