Default Japanese army

I was thinking of starting a guard army based on the WWII imperial Japanese army. The doctirines I was thinking of using are:
Jungle fighters
Iron discipline
Die-hards
Hardened fighters
Veterans
What do you all think?

Go with it. But I suggest that you change the jungle fighters with the light infantry rules. Always remember Iwo Jima. They don't really have alot of jungle there. And they are hidden within the mountains and also caves. Jungle fighters only applies to the jungles of the phillipines, borneo and malaya.

In malaya(tody's malaysia) they used bicycles to move from the Thai- malya borders to singapore with only their basic equipment. They have some light tanks, but it is mostly the speed in which they move brings down singapore. That's light infantry.

An exellent idea, just make sure you do some conversions, and study some japanese hiragana and so on for writting.

I always have lots of conversions in my armies, and this army will be no different . And I have a large 253 page book on the Imperial Japanese army, which has some of the Japanese writting system, and pics of Japanese troops.
And I may change the Jungle fighters doctirine for the Light infantry doctirine .

Bloody hell, I am offended and I am not even remotely asian.

That kind of thing is just not on. If someone wanted to base a praetorian army on the colonial Brits I wouldn't go and bitch about how they put my ancestors into concentration camps or the like. No I'd give some real advice.

Start your own slander thread and maybe you'll get some replys. Don't hijack this guys thread due to some percieved offence.

Hijacking? No my friend (well no not friend, I've never talked to you before in my life) I am merely giving useful fluff advice, it can't be helped if I happen to go off on some tangent, regardless, some of the Japanese WW2 fluff would not be out of place in the 40k universe at all.

Eg. I can see a commisar forcing perfectly normal and nice conscripts to kill unarmed civilians in order to make them desensitized and bloodthirsty.



PS: British are largely aware of their mistake with Imperialism in the same way Germans are aware that the holocaust was wrong...Japs...ohoh, that's another matter entirely....

PPS: You don't need to be asian to be offended, I know many people in Australia are still neglected about their sufferings at the hand of Japs during Singapore, Philipines, Sumatra and Malaya

Crazed, you've crossed a line here.

This is blatant race-bashing. Yes, the Japanese did plenty of bad things during WWII, but that doesn't give you the right to post like that.

Fair enough, I, with some reluctance apologize (I had a bit to drink beofre and that probably wasn't the wisest idea.....)

most are a little to samurai-ish to be ww2 but the dragon launcher team would make an excelent heavy weapons team.
