As a matter of fact... I have two full platoons of JCMs, fully painted. 

I like the figures. There aren't a lot of variations in weapons for the
Flechette guns, SAWs and missile launchers are all that there are, but
that is
quite sufficient for SG2. The units are vaguely samurai like in their
but far more realistic than Warzone's Mishima troops. They tend to be
shorter than my NSL troops, reflecting that the people are shorter. 

The castings are very nice, with little flash. The poses look good,
evoking a
nice sense of fluid motion. Leaders have katanas, making them easy to
out. What's more, the female figures (even those wearing helmets) are
obviously female without being caricatures. A couple of SAW troopers
without them wearing their helmets, allowing them to show off their
(I can't remember the true name for them off hand). There is one pretty
figure, a female trooper with her helmet under her arm, and with pig
tails. In
honour of Jon's obvious anime influence, I painted two of these with
hair, one with red, and one yellow (ala Sailor Moon). *S*

They paint up nice and look very good on the board. I can send you
pictures if
you'd like (I have some pictures of them scanned to show some friends). 

I'd like to see Japanese snipers, and perhaps something like an observer
or ECM team, but they make a good general SG2 force. For vehicles, I'm
my old Kryomek resin grav vehicles as Japanese vehicles, and they look
with them.
