Plan Orange was the USA contingency plan for war with Japan in the 1930s. The following AAR is our version of that what-if ashore on fictional Desperatu Island. It features 28mm collections and a few scenic 54mms too.


Our story is told by very briefly captioned photos. Your eyes will enjoy it. Plus, there are design ideas for a rear-guard action which might be of use.

Thanks for going to all that trouble, nice read and great looking game. I may have missed it, in which case I do apologize, but what rules were you using?

Nice looking game. I have those same buildings from Miniature Building Authority. They are very versatile. They can be used for a variety of periods. I plan to use them in my France 1940 scenario. Those Japanese rifles are really long. They look like pikes. What rules are you using?

Great looking game! Love 'early war' stuff, working on my Japanese forces this week too.
