    Everyone,

    ----Here is a pic of the Japanese Rifle Infantry that Chad Coffman,
    a.k.a. “Allworkandnoclay” painted for me. These are painted in the “mainland” scheme. I especially like the intricate “Rising Sun” ensigns painted on their bases. I hope you enjoy them.

    I like when there’s many like that together - with all the rising suns close… that must look pretty cool in-game, a wave of the rising sun on the border.  I think other players might get upset with me because I don’t think I’d want to use any chips. 8-)

    ––Well, I not only think that painted units are ‘Cool’ 8-), but by using Infantry units that have national ensigns painted on their bases I can usually do away with the ‘control markers’ used in the game to identify ownership of the conquered countries. Although my gameboard has been enlarged 150% to 48" x 108", I think it really helps to relieve the ‘clutter’ that can easily build up if not thought out in advance.

    ––Banzai !

    “V”,

    ––Like all of the countries in my A&A set, there will be at least one additional paint scheme for the regular Rifle Infantry units. The second Japanese paint scheme will be for the “Outer South Seas Forces”. I might have a pic of some painted in this scheme if you ever wanted to see them.

    ––Also, I have many ideas for multiple command arangements of theaters, task forces, etc. that I’ve been working on for quite some time. The different paint schemes, as well as other steps taken, will help segregate the forces of differing commands and make it much easier for multiple commands.

    Dig out that pic.  😄  I like the steps taken to differentiate commands.  So Paul, a task force… I noticed those cool markers that HBG does, but I haven’t read about any house rules concerning them.  You have a plan/rules?  I’m just kinda curious as to what a task force will consist of, it’s ‘abilities’ and what not…

    ––Well, here’s a close-up pic that illustrates the differences between “Mainland scheme” from the “Outer South Seas Forces scheme”. � Notice the lighter colored helmets, shorts, and trousers of the more tropical friendly OSSF’s uniforms.

    NICE!

    “the more tropical friendly OSSF’s uniforms.” - eheheeheh, I needed that.  Yeah… we certainly don’t want them wearing Parkas… that would be like soldiers wearing shorts in the winter, errr, wait (the British minis).

    ––Well, my thoughts on Multiple Command Arrangements have a couple of layers of depth, and can be used in two separate ways.
    ––If you don’t mind, it would take a little more time to describe them than I have at the moment, but I’ll return and share them with you.

    ----Here’s something you can think about though.

    ----Imagine a “GRAND GAME”, with many players. Enough players to have
    multiple commands/commanders for EACH nation. Each ‘command’ having different objectives, although some would be ‘shared objectives’ with your same-nation teammate(s). Identity issues would immediately become a big problem,…unless you’ve made a well thought-out plan ahead of time to differentiate the separate ‘commands’ forces. “Walaa”.
    ----There would also be ‘sub-unit’ commands’ and others.
    ----The Naval ‘commands’ would be used in conjunction with my
    "Fleet Sheets"(copywrited) and the Land Force ‘commands’ would also use something designed especially for them.

    ––Sorry, but I’ve got to go now in order to make an appointment,…more later.

    Guys,

    ––Here’s an “In-Process” pic of an additional NEW aircraft scheme for us, the IJA-“South Seas Forces”. Note that these aircraft don’t yet have their “alpha” & “numeric” decals applied yet.
    We will start out with the following aircraft:

    4 - KI-61 “Tony” (Army Fighters)
    2 - D-3A “Val” (Dive Bombers)
    1 - J1N1 “Gekko” (Long-Range Fighter)
    1 - G-8N “Rita” (Heavy Bomber)
    1 - KI-57 “Topsy” (Air Transport)

    Enjoy,
    Tall Paul
