As far as a narrative for this army the history books say that the KMT Nationalists basically hired the Green Gang to break up Communist meetings and fight in the civil war. The Green Gang also provided financial support to the KMT from the profits of the heroin trade. This force will essentially include a lot of gang members who have been told to fight the Japanese and supplement the KMT Regular forces during the Battle of Shanghai. I imagine them ambushing Japanese patrols and disrupting supply lines through quick strikes during darkness.
I sourced the miniatures from the Pulp Figures range, unfortunately they have been withdrawn by Bob Murch to be refreshed and the only source now is Crucible Crush Productions. While they are pretty good some of them look a bit tired and I can see why Bob is redoing the range.
I will be going to Cobblestone Miniatures for the rest of the range as the have some great Nationalist soldiers and some other characters I can use to continue to build up this army.
All up there is 30 28mm troops coming to 150 points.
I do like the Pulp Figures range as every character seems sculpted with a sense of fun and you've really brought these to life with the expressive skin tones I've come to expect and the clothes are bright enough to pop but not over the top.
I do like the basing too, looks like a right good mix of ingredients in there and it helps frame the figures.
150 points very much earned!
