Well I have finished my first assets. In PBI snipers are Assets and the Japanese you will not be surprised have the opportunity to get more than 1 sniper. So for now I have made 2. I will need to increase this number and may eve go as high as 4. For now 2 is enough.
So today is 2 sniper stands for ww2 Japanese army (Or Marine). Only 4 figures but I hope to have the first platoon finished by the weekend.
The chance to get 1 or 2 or even 3 Japanese snipers in PBI is quite high. It depends on rolling well and being brave. The Japanese in Pacific Island wars have a dice pool of 15 for a sniper. You may select as many dice up to that score but the score or pool of dice is diminished each turn by the number you select. If any of the dice roll a "6" then the sniper would turn up for the rest of the game. So with 15 dice in the pool it is VERY likely that at least 1 sniper will arrive.
The figures are by Battlefront and are 15mm in size.
Thanks for looking and with luck a whole platoon before Sunday.
All the best Clint
