The Australian Army raised a number of units for commando-style operations during the Second World War – the first being the twelve Independent Commando Companies formed between 1941 and 1942.

Predominantly serving in New Guinea, the Dutch East Indies and Borneo their task was to perform raids, demolition, sabotage, subversion, and organisation of civil resistance against the Japanese. The Independent Companies saw heavy action, serving with considerable distinction.

Commandos also formed ad hoc formations such as Kanga Force – a composite formation of Commando companies and the New Guinea Volunteer Rifles which undertook raids and reconnaissance operations in New Guinea.

Commandos were also the basis for M Special Units and its more famous counterpart, Z Force. Conducting covert operations in the South West Pacific against the Japanese, these units were formed with volunteers from Australia, Britain, New Zealand, and the Dutch East Indies

As the war drew to a close the Independent Companies would be used in more traditional infantry roles, their trademark Owen Gun submachine guns and distinctive berets marking them out as soldiers worthy of respect from friend and foe alike.

Contains a 10-man section:

  • 1 NCO with SMG
  • 2-man Bren Gun LMG team
  • 3 commandos with rifles
  • 4 commandos with SMGs

Preis: 15.00GBP

As the Second World War progressed, Japanese forces were pushed back from the territorial gains they had made in the early stages of the war.

With Allied bombing and ground campaigns hampering Japanese industry the Emperor’s soldiers learnt to use whatever materials were at hand to face the enemy, as firearms and ammunition became ever more scarce. This would see Japanese soldiers sacrificing themselves with grenades, a courageous last ‘banzai’ charge with swords drawn, or using sharpened lengths of bamboo as makeshift spears.

The fanatical devotion to their Emperor, their country and their honour led many brave Japanese soldiers to such lengths. Allied troops were both in awe and disbelief of such heroics as the Japanese assault would more often than not perish in the face of sustained Allied firepower. Yet still the Japanese attacked…

The figures in this boxed set represent a squad of desperate but proud Japanese soldiers in the remnants of their uniforms, bedraggled and unkempt yet not bowed by their situation or likely fate. Banzai!

Contains a 10-man squad:

  • 1 NCO with sharpened bamboo spear
  • 9 soldiers with sharpened bamboo spears
  • 10 plastic bases

Preis: 15.00 GBP

Even the emperor is pleased with what this box contains:

  • Enough plastic components to make 3 Chi-Ha’s
  • Blast markers?
  • Decal sheets?
  • Stat card?
  • A detailed booklet describing how to build and paint your Chi-Ha’s!

Chi-Ha

With over 2,100 units made, the Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tank was the second most produced Japanese medium tank of World War II, after the smaller Type 95 Ha-Go. It saw extensive action in the Second Sino Japanese War, the Battles of Khalkhin Gol against the Soviet Union, and throughout World War II.

The driver sat on the right and hull machine gunner to the left. The tank commander also acted as the gunner, assisted by a loader/radioman/rear machine-gunner. The Chi-Ha had no intercom so the driver had to respond to a series of twelve buttons in the turret linked to buzzers sited near the driver for instructions.

Although the Chi-Ha had no coaxial machine-gun it had a rear turret machine-gun. The turret was equipped with a relatively large commander cupola. Later, a horse-shoe radio aerial was mounted – a feature of many WWII Japanese tanks.

Preis: 50.00 GBP

  • Auf der Website von Warlord Games kann man übrigens sehen, dass der Chi-Ha auch als Shinhoto-Chi-Ha mit der 47mm Kanone gebaut werden kann.

    Denke mal, sowohl der als auch die Speerkämpfer werden ihren Weg in meine Armee finden.

    • Das ist echt interessant, da die ursprünglichen Chi-Ha und Shinhoto Chi-Ha, die man einzeln kriegt, unterschiedliche Chassis und Aufnahmen für den Turm haben.

  • Haben die neue Designer? Also der Japaner Anführer sieht total übertrieben aus… das erinnert an Konflikt47… wo sind nur die tollen Warlord Modelle von 2016 geblieben???

    • Bei dem Anführer stört mich eigentlich eher, dass er keine Schwertscheide hat, steckt der die scharfe Klinge einfach so in den Gürtel?
      Und warum nimmt der einen Bambusstock mit, wenn er ein Schwert hat?

  • Ich würde mich über einen Type 89B von Warlord freuen.
    Die 3er Box Chi-Ha wäre was interessantes für mich.
