Something different

Today I will show something completely different. I finished the first miniature of the other side of the Vietnam war . Here is the first NVA Soldier. An Empress miniatures figure sculpted by Paul Hicks. I did a head swap as when I purchased the figures there were only 2 different packs available but since then the range has grown considerably and is still doing so. I painted the figure with Contrast colors by GW.

There will be many more following this one!

An NVA head swap

I got the new North Vietnamese Army soldiers from Empress Miniatures in the post the other day. As there is not such a big variety at the moment ( there are many more to come from the talented Mr. Hicks!) I started to swop some heads on the miniatures. You can find other heads in the french indochine range of Empress.

The one in the middle is the original miniature. The one on the left and right has a new head. There is a little green stuff round the neck missing at the moment.

Close ups of the two with new heads:

I will do another eight figures with a head swap and hopefully I have enough diversity in my NVA squads then.
