Russo-Japanese War - Shock Markers and Bombers.
A good day on the painting front and yet more from lead mountain, I picked these extra's from Tsuba Miniatures at salute back in April, no news yet of the promised Japanese Cavalry, still plenty more to get on with.
The ammo bearers pack is a useful addition and gives me a few more options for shock and low ammo markers for use within the The Two Fat Lardies - Mud and Blood rules, which are my rules of choice for the RJW.
Second up a couple of casualty bases which add a little more flavour to the table, I contemplated copying the plate below, which the figure on the right is model on, but thought better of at, better to blend in with what I have, however it did get me thinking about another unit of Russians with white tunic's - I am not sure the trousers are entirely correct?
Can anyone help confirm the red trousers before I put paint to brush????
I had a couple of spare Japanese from the WW2 Project left over and throught they might get more table time, if a recruited them into the RJW ranks.
A couple of Warlord Games bombers ready to storm the trenches of Port Arthur, should they get through the wire first...
Followed by a Mounted Big Man also from Warlord.....
It's been several months since the RJW Troops got an airing, with a couple of fresh units painted up, time I put on a game up at the Wyverns Wargames Club.
