As I can be a very impatient guy I tried out a different. Miniature manufacturer. I have completed quite a table full of Vietnam terrain but have no inhabitants so I didn’t want to wait until Empress Miniatures brings out civilians in their Vietnam war range and bought some from Full Metal Miniatures. Don’t get me wrong, you can never have to many civilians, so i will buy the Empress ones, too when they are avalable .
So here is a comparison of a Full Metal Miniature figure and two Empress ones:
As you can see the figure hight is comparable, the Full Metal Miniature in the centre of the picture is just a bit chunkier. For me it is a close enough fit to use miniatures of both brands on the same table.
Here are some more pictures of the white collar worker, woh will eventually supervise some porters on the docks of my river terrain.
I painted him like I did all my other Vietnam War figures with GW contrast colors. I think he looks the part.
