You're probably aware I have quite an ambitious plan for a WWII campaign in the Pacific, following a US Marine platoon from Guadalcanal up through the Solomons (Bougainville, New Britain etc...), across the Central Pacific (Tarawa, the Marshalls, the Marianas), to Peleliu, winding up with Okinawa. I'd previously shown some test figures for the Marine side of the war, and now I want to show their foes.
This is not the whole force, but it's what I have so far. All the infantry are from Eureka Miniatures, and their fantastic, which is what I expected as I've been very happy with my previous purchases (modern Russians, Chechens, and Australians). These sculpts look great to me, almost makes me wish I needed more of them ;) As it is, I'm still waiting on some Peter Pig machine guns (just a matter of taste, but I like PP's MG poses a little more than Eureka's), and I've got a Type 95 tank (also Peter Pig) primed, waiting to be painted. One more thing about Eureka (here in the States): they are quick! It seems I've barely pushed the button on Paypal and the mailman is dropping them off!
Let's get to the figures.
So, another 15mm skirmish force (almost) ready for battle. On a side note, I only got one game in this weekend, another One Hour Wargames Napoleonic fight with the boy, which I'll get posted up as soon as possible. Still a 15mm WWII skirmish batrep to post, as well as a number of other 15mm skirmish forces, so stay tuned.
