Decided to try the nifty mini Chain of Command campaign posted by Stephen Philp (Sackatatties) on the CoC facebook group. It is a 5 rung mini campaign that has the 17th Inf Div pursuing the Japanese 18th Army. The 99th Brigade of the Black Cats (17th Div) run into a blocking position outside of Pyawbwe. The first game uses the Probe scenario with Rob T having a Commonwealth platoon and 16 points of support and Chris Se. has a standard Japanese platoon with 8 points and 2 CoC dice.
20mm minis played at Gigabites Café in Marietta, GA last month
Table layout is flat with a tree line a couple of huts and several dry paddies.

We'll need a new East Yorkshire platoon for Game 2.

20mm{!}, what are you using for Indian units in that scale? Tempted to do conversions but where to get nice turbanned heads?

Wish I lived near that cafe!

Yes! Why do I always seem to find myself 1000s of miles west of the Mississippi (or east of "down under" for Far Eastern aficionados? evil grin

Superb encouragement for dreamed of Burma projects! thumbs up

The units involved are suppose to be East Yorkshire-so using combination of Eureka Aussies, SHQ Med, and some head swaps from Ultima Ratio Chindits plastics. No Asian Allied units in this campaign. I would like to see some suitable Indian minis.
Thanks,Mark
