Here is the squad leader of the 1st squad 1st platoon. A Gringo 40 figure again:
And the 2nd fire team:
Here is the next Grunt for my growing Vietnam war collection.
This time it is a figure by Gringo 40 miniatures. An afro-american ( hope that is the political correct designation) GI. These are wonderfull sculpts and are only slightly bigger then the Empress miniatures . They get along quite well so that I will mix both ranges in my american force.
Painted again with Contrast paint from games workshop.
I got my plastic rainforest vegetation in the post yesterday so will start on some scatter scenery shortly.
So i finished the test miniature. It took me about 20 minutes to do , excluding drying times. I think it is a good table top standard. Definitely not for a painting competition. But can be used for one as a base or starting point. I tried this to see how quick I could get a new army painted by using mainly Contrast paints.
In my summer holiday (two weeks of) I will try to paint as many as i can. Aim is to paint a complete squad of US Marines for Vietnam. Lets see how much I can manage in 2 weeks!
