Working on a Japanese Action Deck for Combat Patrol(TM): WWII

I have been working for a couple of months on Pacific War supplement for Combat Patrol(TM): WWII.  The supplement involves new morale results for Japanese units as well as special rules for banzai charges and suicide attacks on vehicles.  The new morale results have more unit results and fewer individual results to reflect the unique military cult culture of the Japanese Army in WWII.  These new morale results will be incorporated into special Japanese Action Decks.  The cards in this action deck are exactly the same as the other Action Decks except for the morale results.

I went back to my artist and asked him to create new artwork for the Action Deck.  Again, the results will be the same as the other Action Decks, but I wanted the artwork to look Japanese.

I really like the new artwork.  It is consistent in style to the original Action Deck, but it is definitely Japanese in feel.
