This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
22 more figures were completed today for my Japanese Bolt Action army. All of the figures are metals from Brigade Games Pacific line.
First up are twelve Japanese riflemen, which form the core of my Bolt Action force.
Next up are 6 Suicide Anti-Tank figures. The rules in "BA" are very interesting for Japanese Suicide anti tank teams - each unit is a single fig and gets it's own order die. If they survive defensive fire it's an auto hit with 8+ penetration (that's pretty devastating in "BA" terms).
An 81mm mortar just to add to the fun.
Here's a shot of the whole Japanese force. I'm planning on fielding 5, 12 man squads and 6 suicide anti-tank teams plus a tank and some other support.
The sharp eyed amongst you may noticed a primed flamethrower team that may get added to the mix.
