One of the subjects which I have been interested in for a very long time, but have never actually got around to gaming until now, has been the island-hopping campaign in the Pacific in World War Two. Even though WWII has always been one of the most popular periods among wargamers, the Far East is still a relatively neglected theatre of that conflict.
One reason, I suppose, is fairly obvious - not enough tanks for the 20mm and 1/300 players, who always seem to end up concentrating on massive armoured battles. But I am basically a 25/28mm fan, and this subject is ideally suited to the sort of "skirmish" games involving relatively small infantry forces which lend themselves best to this scale. So, not surprisingly, the main factor in rekindling my own interest has been news of the forthcoming 28mm range from The Assault Group, which promises to supply everything we will need to build up American and Japanese forces for this campaign.
