Hi Everyone!

Glad to see this sub-forum has been set up.

I had a question about the Chinese Warlord Era miniatures, and what would be viable in the requests section of the forum. The idea would be to use them in 'Back of Beyond' type battles. After some good input from people, and some research, here is what I could scratch together.

First of all, I managed to find that someone else had done a lot of the work already. Thank you Dr Phalanx! His Blog has a great rundown of what figures can be used from the Pendraken lists: His blog is a great source of info, and has lots of pictures of the figures!

Firstly: I'll repeat what he has listed there.

Dr Phalanx's List:

Northern Army

Pendraken Code:       Use As:                                 
RP6 and RJ3             Northern Infantry
NW4 and NW5         Bandits / Irregulars fighting for the north
RJ5                         Northern HMG
FRE58                     Armoured Cars
JP7                         'Dare to Die' Infantry
RA8                        Mongol / Irregular Cavalry

Southern Army
Pendraken Code:       Use As:                               
BP1, BP41,RP1         Southern Infantry
SCW34 and SCW32  Southern Assault Troops
SCW35                   Southern Officers
VM2 and VM3          Pesant 'recruits'
RP2                        Southern HMG
RP3                        Southern Cavalry
ME19                      Southern Armoured car


Some mixing/matching will need to be done on the crews for these guns. See Dr Phalanx's blog on what is needed.
Pendraken Code:       Use As:                               
RP4                        Atrillery
AH10                      Mountain Gun
VM14                      3 inch mortar

As you can see, the above is a very extensive list.

I have a couple of additions that I think may be suitable too:
Pendraken Code:       Use As:                               
IP1 / IP11                      Assault Troops
SCW24                          Assault SMG
SCW 25                         Chinese Officer
SCW 131                        Chinese High Command

If you have any additions to the above list, drop them in the comments below and we can keep building them. At the time the Warlords era was raging in China, the Russain Civil war was also in full swing. Many populations were escaping over the border from Russia, only to find themselves caught up in what was foing on in China. If you wish to add some Russian Reds or Whites, either as mercanaries or just meddling forces trying to get a toehold in the region (it did happen) you can get most of your figures from the WW1 Russian line, as well as the 'interwar' Russian civil war line. I hope we can compile and create a suitable list of proxies for the Russian Civil war in the future too, and that will add some more 'flavour of the time' to your games.

Similar to what I've just posted in the RCW topic, the Russo-Japanese War range has Japanese Infantry, Artillery and Hotchkiss MGs in the "pork-pie" type forage caps suitable for China. Shame there's only one pose in RJ3, but good for variety.

The website is incorrect as there are 3 poses - 1 officer and 2 infantry
