Re: Masters for Imperial Japanese Army in Attack are up

I have run into this problem with GarrisonClay before when he posted under a different name on another forum. He actually got worse with me when we disagreed about ring hands.
The Japanese soldier was an excellent bayonet fighter. I have never seen a Japanese-made photo of Japanese soldier without his bayonet fixed on his rifle. They seemed to almost prefer to use the bayonet. The fact that their light machine guns were capable of taking a bayonet, and usually did, says a lot about their preferences.
I still request that the pose be deleted and a light machine gunner (with fixed bayonet) be substituted.
I recall Mike Bunkermeister and I are in favor of ring hands. I like the fact so many of Strelets sets do have ring hands. I just bought about 20 boxes of all Strelets ww1 cavalry sets and like the ring hands. Why don't you ask Strelets to add the bayonet to the clubbing guy like in the nappy pictures. Doesn't HaT also use ring hands?
