The final figures for my Bolt Action Pacific WW2 armies have arrived from Britannia/Grubby Tanks. A great service from the company who added a few extra figures for free because of a delay in dispatching the order (I only waited a couple of weeks!). So, a big thank you is due. I am now set up for a couple of months of painting over the Christmas period. The forces I have are as follows (points are given in brackets):
