Last time I spoke about this project I had just picked up my first box sets and blisters. Since then I have been very busy building, painting, writing new a list, rewriting the list, re rewriting the list (still not 100% happy with it...), etc, etc. But what I have done which was successful and a solid fixture in all the list writing is the first two infantry platoons.
There was a lot of chatter about my tank support and quite rightly I do have way too many tanks for a properly themed SNLF. I have tried to write a list with 3 Veteran Infantry platoons but I'm not sure about the balance (although having 3 platoons of Japanese infantry will be scary!). I'm sticking with the Japanese tanks for now but I think the list will turn into a more infantry focused list going forward. Also since I started this project it has been announced that Battlefront will be releasing Pacific books at the end of the year. I have read a lot about the Japanese forces in 1942/43 (the era of the Pacific I'm most interested in) so expect some more bits and pieces to be added over the summer as I try to get a head start before the book lands.
Sarissa-Precision's Far East range of builds and possible try to get a Japanese board made for the tournament as well.
Thanks for reading and until next time'
