Japanese Paratroops

Strelets has released a new set, Imperial Japanese Army Paratroops, for World War Two.  It's a good set, with no flash and a nice mix of figures.

Japanese Army paratroops landed in the Dutch East Indies early in the war.

They also fought on Luzon late in the war.

They were deployed in relatively small units of only a few hundred men.

Still, from a wargame perspective, that's enough for a great game.

Even the threat of paratroopers can cause your opponet to deploy in depth to avoid having his troops attacked from behind by a paratroop drop.
