More Imperial Japanese

Over the last week or so I have been slowly working through my Japanese army in an effort to get them painted up. The current method is to paint them in batches of three which seems to provide me with enough variety not to get bored with the painting process.

The Chain of Command army list for 1942  appears to be a bit bigger than other nation’s lists with  four crew to serve each support weapon and infantry squads of  fourteen including their Junior Leaders.  So before I even think about selections from the support option lists I have to paint fifty six figures !

 They break down as follows:

1 Senior Leader  

5 Junior Leader with rifles

3 Mortar men  
3 LMG Men

45 Riflemen

Yikes !

 I hope you enjoy what I have achived so far.
