Another NVA regular . Figure by Empress miniatures.
Just one more and the first lot is finished.
Now that there are only three older NVA soldiers left before I start on the Crisis19 ones, I thought it would be a good idea to change my photo setup. Until now i took the pictures on my gaming table . The lighting wasn’t perfect there so I decided to make a small framework for my painting/modeling desk as light there is no problem. So I took two pieces of extruded polystyrene and glued them together with my hot glue gun.
You get something like this then. I glued sand and grid down like I would do on a piece for my gaming table and started painting it with my usual ground colors.
Then I painted the backdrop a light blue color and used a second even lighter tone of blue to simulate light clouds.
So when used correctly you get a picture like this:
Now you can use different scatter terrain pieces to change the layout as you like. Here are pictures of another NVA soldier using the plain photo frame I described above:
I think you get much better pictures like that . What do you think?
The platoon leader. The last figure from the command pack , to be found in the indo china range by empress miniatures.
And the complete platoon leader section:
Next will be the last 3 NVA soldiers from the first badge of Vietnam war figures I purchased. After that i will start on the miniatures I bought at Crisis 19.
This is the medic of my first NVA platoon. He is from the French Indo China range from Empress miniatures. Fits in quite nicely with the new NVA range.
More to come!
