This one is armed with a LAW, sawn off shotgun and a light machine gun. Furthermore he has 2 fragmentation grenades.
Here is the heavy weapons specialist of my Seal Team. He is armed with an M60. Ammo is supplied from a ammo feed system taken from a chopper door gun.
This Navy Seal is the RTO of my Team. He is equiped with a Prick25 radio. He holds a smoke grenade in his right hand ready to throw .
So after a longer hiatus, real life came inbetween, here is the next painted figure for my ongoing Vietnam War project.
Here is the first of my Navy Seal Team . He is wearing a Levis. This was often the case , as the jeans was a robust, tight fit. So better against leaches. The figure is sculpted by Paul Hicks and avalable through Empress Miniatures. The pack contains a 6 men Seal Team.
Is he really on the way to the market?
Or on his way to kill someone?
The next VC in disguise. Always check every sack of rice !
This Vietnamese village elder looks proudly over the rice paddies of his village, or is he looking for the imperialist enemy?
OOPs, he had a rifle hidden in the elephant grass behind him… better look more closely next time!
Here are all the civilian/VC figures I finished up till now.
More to come…
Just a innocent farmer…..
Or a bit of firepower for the VC!
Here is the next Civilian or VC in disguise armed with a light MG.
Another civilian miniature. This time a female one. She is carrying an upturned wicker hat draped with a piece of cloth. This was very typical for carrying goods. So after leaving the goods purchased on the market she goes to the weapons cache to do some hunting…..
Another guerrilla fighter to wreak havoc….
The next figure pair in the civilian range I am working on. This time a village elder to frail for a fight?
not really I would say. Better look twice!
