After the early start and madness that was the Kids raking in there haul, eating too much (followed by the inevitable sugar crash) I managed to actually get some painting done.
I have had a game awhile ago vs Xelee's Russians (though thankfully without the T-34/85) and while we were sort of only vaguely knew the rules we had a blast. Following this the game seems short, bloody and somewhat (but not too brainfryingingly) tactical. The Initiative sequence is quite cool and unique.
I have had some Japanese Army models for a while and have decided to get them finished finally. I have around 500pts but first up is a Veteran Jungle Fighter squad of the 第2師団 Daini shidan or 2nd Sendai Division which fought through the Dutch East Indies and Solomon's (where it lost 7000 men!) until finishing the war fighting in Burma, where it was annihilated. Its call sign was "The Courageous Division"
|NCO with the rare Type 100 SMG|
|"There are coming out of the trees!"|
|8 Veterans..., mostly with Ariska's, though also an NCO and a Type 99 LMG Team|
|Type 99 LMG Gunner|
|And showing off the webbing|
I have a fire support squad of 6 more Experienced troops halfway done so far and plan to get the army done by end of January :)
