Japanese paratroopers?

Who knew?

Certainly not me.

Definitely on my wish list for a long time, now on my shopping list. Thank you Company B

Certainly underrepresented in all scales. Another unit you should have if you want to fight in the Dutch East Indies.

The Japanese did use them in Indonesia and by mid-war had a paratroop Division (at least in theory) – and I believe they also did a paradrop on Leyte in 1944 to attack US airfields

This is super weird is it me or do a lot of the SNLF poses seem to have been based on the IJA figures Paul Hicks did for Brigade Games?


Certainly underrepresented in all scales.

I should like to point out that we've long had them in 20mm.

Another unit you should have if you want to fight in the Dutch East Indies.

Becareful which units you buy though! The army paras fought the Brits and Dutch at Palembang, whereeas their SNLF counterparts fought the Dutch at Menado and a combination of Dutch and Aussies on Timor.

Who is "we"?

I didn't say that no one made them, I said they are underrepresented.

Wargamers as a collective group. Three different makers in that one particular scale. Gosh, folks are so easily triggered.
