This is an all new project, chinese VS. Japanese WWII. All figures are from Pendraken, the chinese are mostly WWI german and WWII german guns, as germany supplied most uniforms for the nationalist chinese and most weapons were licence built german weapons such as the Pak 36 and the MG34 etc.. Even the K.A.R.98. The Japanese however are basic japs.
Japanese aircraft mix it with american built fighters, The chinese used alot of aircraft from many nations. Here is a couple of Boeing P-26 Peashooters and Curtiss F11C Goshhawk Bi-plane. I scratch built the aircraft for this project as I couldnt find the aircraft in 10mm.
Here uis a skirmish for a small farm, chinese troops holding the farm are about to be over run.
Chinese Infantry advance supported by tanks, Here a vickers 6 ton and a couple of Panzer I tanks, in battle we found that the british built vickers 6 ton did well against the japanese tanks, but not as well as the T26.
Japanese troops now holding the farmhouse fire on the chinese flank. There would have been alot more to this and maybe a Batrep but the batteries ran out to the camera so it has to end here, but here is the first glimpse of the new figures.

Overall I quite like the battlepack and certainly good value for your money.
I recently got the Crimean war Alma Battlepack from Irregular miniatures, in it you get 3 armies, russian, british and french. These are the british part of the pack.

A Pack of 6mm Vikings from Baccus.
These are a new range for Baccus and well over due. The figs are lovely and all mixes of poses which is always better than boring Napoleonic's all in rank and file. Don't get me wrong I like Napoleonic but as a painter they are rather dull to paint, very little variety.
French Hussars of the 1st Regiment. Apart from the fact that they are easy to paint I just like the look of the 1st Regiment, The Figs are from Lancashire Games and these were ordered without command which is a shame as Hussar Command is what makes French hussars look so good, the reverse colours and mixture of dress between the command contrast well with the rest of the regiment, but here am I talking about what you cant see.
Here are Two complete American Civil war armies in 2mm Scale. I cannot remember how many figures but in 2mm who cares, they are all 2mm Irregular Miniatures figures based 3 strips to a base for infantry and 2 cannon with 2 limbers for cannon, command is different numbers of HQ spread to fill out Corps commands and overall C-in-C.
The Scenery is made of moss Flock glued to card for trees and scratch built buildings.
A close up of the Union army with zoarves to the Front, 4 batteries of cannon and 4 commands with 1 HQ.
The Confederate army is slightly smaller again with zoarves.
