Looking for how to best use the last few 43/1000 points. All units regular unless otherwise specified. Idea was to hold line with inexperienced infantry (who have a 56.4% chance of turning regular when losing a man in presence of a political officer, making an enemy reluctant to attack if they don’t have the firepower to take down a lot of models in the first strike) and smoke while the heavy mortar and heavy howitzer blast away
103 – Veteran First Lieutenant +1 man (SMGs because free)
145 – IJA Grenadiers (1 NCO, 6 regular infantry, 3 mortars)
105 – Full strength inexperienced Militia Squad
22 – Kempeitai Political Officer +1 man (SMGs because free)
75 – Heavy Mortar Team+Spotter
125 – Type 4 Heavy Howitzer +Spotter
8 – Inexperienced Horse Drawn Limber
82 – General Purpose Truck x2
60 – Regular Second Lieutenant+1 man (SMGs because free)
210 – Full Strength Militia Squad x2
22 – Kempeitai Political Officer +1 man (SMGs because free)June 22, 2022 at 8:54 am #187835SteveTParticipant
Given your plan of holding the line and blasting with the heavy stuff, I would suggest the trucks are not needed. And since you have gone for 2 platoons, why not make use of that and buy a 2nd mortar to really add to your plan?

OK. Replacing the two trucks with a light truck (can still carry both heavy mortars to get them into better position if need OR bring the Grenadiers OR officers forward quickly if needed for an objective) and heavy mortar+spotter brought the list to exactly 1000 points.
