Figure of Russo-Japanese War

Recently, while the soldier figure lineup is covering with wide history from ancient to contemporary, the Russo-Japanese war is forgotten.
It is not only the prototype of modern war but also Russian modern history.
In Japan, The fine-mold corporation sold a 28cm howitzer with artillery soldiers, but It's only one.
So I expect the Russian manufacturer as participating countries.
I would like to hear about your interests.

Re: Figure of Russo-Japanese War

Masaru, strictly speaking, not one of my wargaming interests.

However, I fully support the idea that this should be a period covered by 1/72 figures.
I think the uniforms are interesting (especially with the summer/winter variants) and the conflict itself lends itself to miniature gaming.

Although I sadly do no naval wargaming, I'm very much interested in naval history & who couldn't be fascinated by The Battle of Tsushima?

I should also say it is great when someone speaks up about military history outside the European sphere. We sometimes forget there's a globe of conflict to study.

Interesting topic. I thought actually that Caesar had Japanese and Russian infantry in their pipeline a very very long time ago... Pity this has never been produced.

Re: Figure of Russo-Japanese War

I agree , an interesting but forgotten subject that deserves some coverage.
I doubt we will ever see the sets promised by Caesar so hopefully another manufacturer will give this conflict some attention. It would fit well into the Strelets range !

What Duncan said.

Both the Russians and the Japanese could serve for the Boxer Rebellion as well, and for WW1.
