Russo-Japanese War

Russo-Japanese War

THE RUSSO-JAPANESE WAR RANGE  is quite an unusual subject for a wargame but is a most interesting historical period and lends itself to lively games. The range features Japanese and Russian foot and mounted figures as well as a small but expanding group of artillery and equipment.  

THE JAPANESE ARMY  can be used as Mexican Federals to compliment the US Punitive Expedition to Mexico range.  Use the British colonial field gun CE100 for the Russian artillery. 

THERE ARE SOME EXCITING NEW ADDITIONS to the range including a Russian wheeled Maxim machine gun and crew, Japanese machine gun and artillery crew and a Russian cavalry trooper with separate lance (RR11). The latter is particularly nice. It is hoped to add the Japanese field gun as well as a six horse team field gun, limber and crew by the end 2019.  See the 'JACKLEX MINIATURES RUSSO-JAPANESE WAR PRODUCT LIST' on this site for full details.  

A SAMPLE BAG consisting of five random foot and mounted figures from the Russian and Japanese armies is available below. 

ALSO NEW are the four sections below entitled 'Historical', 'Painting Guide' and 'Wargame Organisation'. I have added information in these sections to assist in getting your Russo-Japanese armies organised, painted and doing battle on the table. The latter section gives a battle scenario based on the battle of Motien Pass in 1904 to enable you to get stuck in to the period quickly. Andy Callan and I ran a demonstration game of the battle at Battleground Show in Stockton recently using Andy's rules (Early 20th Century, available as a download from the 'Wargaming' section of the site). The battle ran to historical form with frontal assaults galore and masses of casualties. Do not let your field artillery get caught in the open - i did and it was not pretty! The rules make for a quick and fun game in the old school style. I hope you enjoy reading it all. Corrections and comments very welcome to
