Intervention...

Just a small post for tonight. I bought a few of the newish Perry British Intervention Force figures with a view to using them in Japan for the many small actions that were fought between the Japanese and the international community (mainly Britain, France and America).

Obviously the Japanese will be from Bac Ninh figures, of which I have quite a few now,  and several terrain items have been started. I've only done two figures for now but more are primed and ready :-)

The 31st (The Young Buffs) were based in China so it's not implausible that an element were transported over for possible land action. Conjecture certainly but I haven't been able to find anything on the British land units in Japan at the moment. 

On to the pictures, officer first, and I must admit I'm rather happy with the hat number on the infantryman, here's hoping I can do it again...

  7. It was either these or the Naval brigade but to be honest I'll probably use both.

    Don't check back too soon, progress for most things I do is slow lol

    cheers

    1. with me it's a case of things getting forgotten about, and not getting finished.

      as I remember "I must paint something else" and then another idea pops up instead, and four months later I look around the paint table and notice the half finished unit, I was so geared up to paint and finish, from months before :))

  8. Given that he was the chappie that ran the unit supply, the odd scenario comes to mind...
