    Just a solo campaign to help you refight the guerrilla actions in that theatre. You should be able to change the names and tweak things to ensure that you can use them more widely.

    It’s fascinating to read up what was written at the time about how things were organised, and then look forward to see the same techniques being used in Vietnam.

    Quite an obscure WW2 theatre, that I really didn’t know much of anything about.  Thanks for the background, admittedly brief but more than I ever knew!  And thanks for warning us that we’re probably going to lose.

    Although we’re wargamers, so quite used to that.

    Hats off to your friend who carved off the lower trousers and wrapped thread around the legs to make puttees.   I, whom am too hamfisted to even do head swaps decently, am very impressed.

    The longer the introduction, the more errors I had room to make 😉
    As for losing, play to our strengths I thought .

    But yes, had I seen the trick with Matchbox 20mm WW1 British infantry I personally would have been tempted down that route, perhaps trying to cut the headgear down.

    Thanks for this article and info… and for this picture!

    I have somewhere two or three Chineses with such matchlocks (Foundry I think) and I never painted them because I thought they were too obsolete for the 1920s warlords era… Now I’ll look for them and I’ll paint them and they will join a group of brigands or whatever. 🙂

    To be honest I don’t think there was anything too obsolete for the warlords era.
