Pennies a bit short in January but I wanted to get started so I purchased these from Early War Miniatures. A grenade launcher squad of three 50mm knee mortars and 5 riflemen in a mix of helmets and iconic field caps with an sword wielding officer ( a bit strange for a support company but Banzai! I suppose)
I might find a more appropriate officer wielding far more deadly binoculars later . I like them I here mixed things about EWM but I have had a lot of stuff mainly British tankers and liked them all. They painted up nicely. I also like the Type 97 mortars I will have a battery of 2 of these eventually. I really like the Type 92 "woodpecker" Nambu machine gun another support option for the platoon.
Next months pay check goes on the rest of the huge Japanese platoons.
