WW2 Japanese and Aussies - Jungle Wargame


Pictures from some WWII Pacific/Jungle games with members of the Brazo de Nelson wargame group.

Airfix Chi-Ha



The 47mm AT gun was made by Alejadro – he used the wheels off a HaT German 37mm gun, and built the gun-shield from scratch. The gun-crew are conversions of HaT German AT figures by Carlos de la Concha.

Airfix 1-76 DUKW



The DUKWs are Airfix classics, cut down to make them warterline models.

Fujimi Bunker 20mm and Matchbox Japanse Infantry

Indochine 1946 wargame photos


Pictures from two separate games played within a week of each other. French patrols with a specific mission and with orders to bring back prisoners for interrogation.

The WW2 battle-hardened French Legionnaires had a great deal of success on the first occasion, but the second game was a definite win for the Viet Mihn.

The defenders won't give an inch, they fight to the end.
