MORE WW2 Japanese Infantry

On a bit of a tear here – got my eyes on the prize and not slowing down (the prize, of course, being FINISHED FORCES! HUZZAH!)

Well, maybe not really “finished” – there’s always SOMETHING I could add… More of a “finished what I have – complete, useable forces to which small additional options could be added – mostly the occasional supporting tank or some such.

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

Another Batch of Battle Honors Japanese. With a slight re-org and an order of another section I should end up with two platoons of three sections with about 8 men per section – one platoon being (mostly) Battle Honors, and the other platoon being mostly Warlord Games.

Here’s what the whole platoon looks like so far…

These are currently organized as two rifle squads and a grenadier squad (with THREE light mortar teams!). These could be organized as later war infantry sections – each with their own light mortar team – but one section would be short an LMG team. I could order a single LMG team from Warlord Games - and probably will in the not-too-distant future (as I also need a similar team for the French to finish out that platoon…).

Supporting Medium Mortar team (and spotter)

The Opposing Force: Chindits! 


  1. Fantastic brushwork on the Japanese!

  2. Nice painting - the officer looks great.

  3. Great looking troops, can't wait to see them on the table.


    1. Thanks Colonel!

      I'll need an opposing force before I can get them on the table. I have a smattering of Chindits (which I'm currently working on), US Marines, Marine Raiders, and some assorted commonwealth troops in "tropic kit" - shorts - for the desert really - but could be pressed into action in the Far East if necessary... unfortunately I only have about a squad of each... not enough for a complete force to face these guys...

    2. Oh, I suppose there is the Russians!

  4. You're on the rampage again :)
    Great looking collection of Japs!

    1. I am! It feels good to be productive again! I was feeling pretty lethargic for a few months there...
