WW2 1943+ Pacific causalty figures

Post by Dropbear » Fri Dec 26, 2008 9:37 am

Figures of wounded Australians in '43 uniform and Japanese as casualty markers for games.

Each suggested pack would have 3 figures per pack, with no headdress so as to be generic, with no weapons on the ground next to the figure.

Pack 1: 3 x Australian casualties

Pack 2: 3 x Japanese casualties

Tally:

Pack 1: 6
Dropbear: 3
Ragnar: 3

Japanese 1
Dropbear: 1

If they don't get any weapons, then we also need a weapons pack with some loose Bren's, rifles, Owens and Thompsons (and Jap guns off course).

Anyway, good idea, I'll take two of each pack for a total of 12 figures.

The idea of no weapons is a) they don't need them being so wounded, and b) to save having to buy heaps of packs to get enough figures to represent every figure in your army that carries a rifle etc.

By being generic you wont need one casualty figure for every non wounded figure in your army.

Of course, it's very convenient. SHQ's Vietnam casualties work the same way. But there I found myself cutting weapons of the Italeri plastic sprues and tucking them under the figures to hide the terrible ugly cuts and pieces of plastic hand still attached to it.

So I thought that a separate weapon pack for the Pacific war would be very convenient. Perhaps I'll open a topic for it shortly.
