Currently I am building a japanese army. I have no idea on what their native irregulars would like and where to get figures for them.
Since this is new army be prepared for lotsa rules questions.

You are definitely talking about Bolt Action, not Samurais, right?March 10, 2021 at 7:38 am #184780NatParticipant
@SteveT – yes, they are in Flames of Empire Book
@Nick – As per the FAQ they dont get any army special rules….how ever you can get the Austrailian /British Native Irregulars, or get the Japanese Spearmen and remove the spears replacing them with rifles.
They would be the people of the ‘greater east asia co-prosperity sphere’ who belived the Japanese properganda. so Malays, Vietmienese, Indians, Koreans, etcMarch 10, 2021 at 8:53 am #184781SteveTParticipantMarch 10, 2021 at 6:27 pm #184798Enquiring_MindParticipant
Here’s a suggestion, there are companies out there that cast 28mm scale Viet Minh for the French Indo China war of the late 40s and early 50s. I think some of those will be suitable?March 11, 2021 at 4:43 pm #184886NickParticipant
I didn’t have Empire in flames so didn’t see that.March 13, 2021 at 5:19 pm #184922HaskeerParticipant
I looked into native irregulars for my Japanese.
Quite a lot of the irregular units were equipped with Japanese kit and uniforms, but I wanted them to look different to the rest of my army, so used the Kachin militia set with the Burmese scouts and they look perfect against photos of Burmese pro Japanese militia.
