JAPANESE GRENADE DISCHARGER SECTION

Managed to take some photos of my Japanese Grenade Discharger section today.

The section is made up of 1 x Junior Leader and  3 x Type 89 Grenade Launchers each with a crew of 4.

The whole section have rifles and can either fire their GL or their rifles but not both in a Phase of Chain of Command rules set .


To create the illusion of the grenade flying out of the barrel of the mortar. I created a hole in the knee mortar with a hobby drill and superglued a very thin piece of wire.
I then used green stuff putty to create the grenade and applied small super glue on the front of the barrel and along the wire and applied fine flock.
The Junior Leader
I needed quite a few  kneeling figures, more than the plastic kits supplied so I had to convert a lot of standing poses into kneeling positions.

Cheers John

JAPANESE INFANTRY SUPPORT

Finally found some time to take some photos of my Infantry Support Options for my Japanese Platoon. 

These include Tank Assault team, Flame Thrower, Lung mines, Sniper, FO, Junior Leader with SMG, Type 92 70mm Infantry gun, MMG and Anti-tank Rifle.

Next, on the "to do list" are the Armoured support options.


Tank Assault Team, I removed the helmet from the figures and replaced the top of their heads with Green stick, I also modelled  the head bands, explosive charge and molotov cocktail.
Scratch built Flamethrower.
I modelled flaps for the cap for these Lung mine troops.
Sniper with Green stick camo.
Forward Observer for Mortar Barrage.
Since the Japanese SMG were rare, I only made one as Len has included it in the Japanese Support Options for one Junior Leader in the upcoming Far East supplement.


The scratch built Type 92 70mm Infantry Gun. 
All painted up and ready for action.
Scratch built MMG
Anti-tank Rifle with 5 crew.
