Your Chinese platoon looks great, even got a bog sword bloke. Where did you get the figures or are they kit bashed? Are they 28mm?
These are 20mm, mostly plastic and, yes, they’ve been kit bashed. The base for most figures comes from the Caesar Chinese WWII Army set http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=1303 the remainder from the HaT Turkish WWI infantry. The heads with the Stahlhelm came from the Airfix WWII Germans. One of the senior leaders and about 8 riflemen in kepis are from the Wargames Foundry 20mm Chinese that the Perrys sculpted (lovely figures but very limited range of poses).

I also have a platoon of the Caesar Chinese in their original state where I’ve created a unit that would work as Communists in blue grey winter padded uniforms.

This is exciting news! I have been away for years due to life and work, but have slowly been checking out the forum last couple months. Still can't play as I'm on temporary assignment for another 4-6 months, and all my gaming stuff is in storage. This may motivate me enough to get another copy of the rules to start getting back up to speed on them though. :D

Dear all the more I read about China, the deeper the rabbit hole. So many weapons, uniforms and vehicles. What I’ve noticed uniformwise is during wwii period, shoes become more prolific, so using Japanese 28mm bottom halves would work, even top halves magazine pouch bandoliers are a must, stick grenade pouches and a da dao, however I think casting heads would be best. Although Siberian ushankas would work. Food for thought.
Edit. There’s some figs worth looking at In here, it be worth approaching warlord. https://store.warlordgames.com/collecti ... nteer-army

Very excited with the news of a British and common wealth book
Being released first. I can’t wait to convert some BF 15mm eigth army to become my Gurkha army!!!
With that special HOUSE rule : instead of shock battle frency team with theee point of shock(battle frenzy) junior leader lose 1 command init only senior leader can rally the shock(battle frenzy)
Aggressive + stubborn troops.
Only option elite rating
And expensive as hell one core platoon of Gurkhas would almost be certain all other major tanks and AFV will be left off the support list.
Can’t wait for the Gurkhas to be released (unleashed)!!!!!
NOTE THIS IS NOT PART OF THE BOOK JUST SOME HOUSE RULES I ENVISION FOR THE GURKHAS
