I've put together the beginnings of a Chinese force to oppose my existing Japanese for the war in China from 1937. Lots of interesting things about the China theatre and a war on a massive scale. If nothing else it witnessed probably the most diverse collection of arms and equipment of any theatre of the war. Lots more for this interested on the blog here Chinese National Army in 20mm

A very informative blog post, thanks. A reorganization of the game room just reminded me that I have a fair number of 15mm Chinese. I'll need some artillery.

Nice work.

Good stuff!! What figures would you recommend for the Chinese Expeditionary Force in Burma? They seem to have used a real mash-up of Chinese Nationalist, British and American uniforms and equipment.

What a terrific blog too. The figures and AFVs reflect great imagination and modelling skill.

I love the gents with the meat cleavers…..

This is great. An almost completely ignored subject in WWII.

I found this book very valuable:

Thanks, but the link just took me to a Helion search page that was blank, do you title and author?

It depends where they retreated to – those in India received a lot of British equipment, those that went back to China received a lot of American. From what I've seen puttees we're still worn, so the main change would be helmets for some of those. The Perry figures from Wargames Foundry in the picture above would also work. To be honest it's a poorly served theatre when it comes to miniatures, but I'm not completely surprised given it doesn't seem to have a broad appeal with gamers.

I'm guessing this book.

Okay, I actually talk about it in the blog post, it's been on my ‘China' shelf for a while.

Dave Jackson Supporting Member of TMP17 Mar 2022 7:49 a.m. PST

yes, that's the book. sorry for the duff post. (Haven't read your entire blog, but put it on my read etc list!)

That is actually the best I have found on the subject. (Including doing recon missions in bookstores in Taiwan!)

I found it very useful for us miniature wargamers.
