Here is another RTO for my US Marines. I needed another one for my mortar section to direct indirect fire.
Here are the two missing figures of the Empress Miniatures US Marine 60mm mortar. These are on the move carrying the mortar baseplate and other equipment:
Here is the Marine carrying the mortar and baseplate:
And his partner humping the ammo and rest of the equipment:
Next up a RTO for calling in that much needed fire support.
Here is the US Marine Mortar in a firing position.
A very nice sculpt by Paul Hicks a treat to paint. look for the toothbrush attached to the helmet!
Here is the completed company command squad for my NVA army. A really nice pack of figures from Empress Miniatures full of character .
Above is the last missing figure, my company commander .
Next up A US Marine mortar section.
Here is the signals NCO of the company command I am building and painting. The flag is freehand, not my best..
Tomorrow the company commander and the complete company command.
The next member of the company command. Armed with a salvaged blooper gun. He is wearing a camouflage cape fashioned from a US parachute.
Here is the sergeant of the Company command pack by Empress miniatures. Very nice sculpt. Unusual weapon!
Here is the next building for my Hue city project. Another 3D printed building from WOW buildings. It is from the world in ruins kickstarter set. It is intended for a “Saving Privat Rian” setting, but I think it works for Hue too.
Here are some pictures of a Marine Recon squad searching the building:
Will they find the NVA hiding in the building?
More Building to come….
As I had a lot of shorter 3d printer filament pieces, too short for bigger projects, I printed these walls to finish them off with something useful. Walls like these can be used in between buildings or around parks and along streets. They are not only useful for my city of Hue project. So here they are:
The 3d stl files are from a WOW kickstarter campaign. I always based one wall and one pillar on one base to make them generic enough to be placed on my gaming boards in a multitude of ways.
Here are a few shots of a US Marine fireteam looking for the NVA/VC or is it the other way round?
I wanted to add some things to give the buildings of my Vietnam war village and city a more lived in look. So I started with some pots were Rice or salted fish or firearms? can be stored in. I got some cheap wooden beads from e bay :
I glued them to MDF bases and painted them in different colors . They look like this now:
You can use them as focal point for gaming, too. Lets say a US squad has to search a village to find weapons etc . There is enough space beneath the base to mark them with the content of the pots.
Here they are on my gaming table:
