Japanese officer with sunhelmet

Another fine figure from the TAG stable. A sunhelmet, glasses, high boots, a katana and a pistol. What's not to like?

WW2 Japanese snipers

As it says on the tin. Two Japanese snipers made by The Assault Group.

WW2 Japanese Samurai Hero

Quite a mouthful, but that's exactly what is is: a WW2 Japanese Samurai Hero. The concept is that of a Japanese golden age superhero, who upholds the old traditions and is a symbol of the greatness of the Japanese Empire. The figure is a conversion based on a West Wind samurai body, with a reworked head from the West Wind SOTR range (german fieldcap gasmask head). I think the faceplate type gasmask-look works well for Japan and with a bit of filing and puttying, the German fieldcap is quickly transformed into a Japanese one. A few more greenstuff details were included to add a few more modern touches: the leather straps instead of ropes/thread for the shoulderarmour and the pistol holster. He is painted in the same colourscheme as the rest of the force.

Weird War II Ninja n° 3

The third of my converted Perry Miniatures ninja's. This one only had a holster added to his hip, but he's my favorite of the lot. I just love the colours on this one and I think it's the best colour scheme of the three so far.

Weird War II Sumatori n° 2

The second of my Weird War II sumatori figures. Model from Urban Mammoth. I love the way they look. This one was also much easier to paint than the other one. Fewer hard to reach places.

Japanese Bugler

One of the TAG limited edition minis that they give away free if you buy a certain number of packs. Excellent as part of a command group or possible *the* figure for your snipers to take out first in a raid scenario to prevent him from giving the alarm.
