  6. Great battle report - really enjoyed it. Inspirational Japanese force.

    I am thinking about picking one up - any advice for a want to be general? Do you find veterans the way to go? I am thinking about picking up the core of a force then waiting for the new Warlord book - think 45 or so infantry is enough? Hard to choose between the awesome junglefighter models and the boring Imperial ones with the extras.

    1. Hi gumbi

      I use my japs as veterans and they are realy nasty in close combat.

      I think the jungle fighter models looks great.....but i think warlord games are going to relese plastic japs soon....dont now when :(

      I have around 45-50 japanese now and one chi-ha tank soo if you make your veterans you should be fine.
