Komrad_BWhy are you all talking about Ethiopia? This thread is about the Sino-Japanese war.. The chinese spawning kits could be heavily randomised, because of the wide variety of weapons they used.

I dunno, it just sort of happened *shrugs*. Although, some of the links in earlier posts pretty much go over all the eqipment used, so its hard to suggest anything new. I suppose we could talk about battles though or find more links though, got distraceted by those spiffy red hats. Komrad, I like this heavy randomiztion idea, especially for example a guerilla class who used more eclectic weaponry. The nationalists had somewhat more of regular army, but a map could have both as options. The guerlla's somtimes even lacked weapons, so the person could get stuck with a spear- now THAT would take some skill!.

Generally speaking it would be the Nationalists. But IIRC you had regional warlords and the Chicoms so uniforms and equipment would vary.

I have to admit some ignorance as to the Chinese situation. I know Chiang Kai Shek was the Generalissimo, and Mao Ze Dong commanded the Chicom's, but where did the Chinese Emperor fit into all of this?

Im assuming Shek controlled the National Army and some Warlords and the Emperor was a figurehead position.

yea my first thought was they were nationalist too, but there were bastions of organization among the rebels/commies as well so of the pics might be of other chinese forces.

China didn't have an emperor from 1911 onwards..the emperor was toplled in 1911 and replaced by a nationalist government under Sun Yat Sen. When Sun Yat Sen retired a new president came to power and crowned himslef emperor in 1915, he lived for only 2 years. Sun Yat Sen and the Nationalists (Kuomintang) set them selves up in the south eastern region of China. China had no real govt. The power was in the hands of many warlords. Chiang Kai Shek became leader of the Nationalists in the early 1920's. In 1926 he led the northern expedition against the main northern warlords in eastern and northern China. By 1930 he had defetaed the An-Fu, Chihli and Fengtien (Manchuria) and Kuominchun factions. In 1927 the nationalists turned on their allies the Chicoms and the civil war errupted again untill the late 30's when Chiang Kai Shek was kidnapped by a young nationalist general and forced to make an alliance with the Chicoms to help each other fight the Japanese. This lasted untill 1941 when the Nationalists tried again to wipe them out. But even after the warlords had been defeated, there were many warlords till left, who were loyal to Chiang Kai Shek and part of the nationalist camp, but they ruled themselves and had their own armies...like a duke or a vassal of a king.
