A little support for the VC

An angry “mama san” and her brother who lost his leg to a booby trap. They seem to be quite inocent.

But ever so often you find out, the hard way, that inocence is not very often to be found

They got a little present from up north , in the form of an old german MG.

Son of the village headman

Here is the next vietnamese civillian figure. He is dressed in a bit better clothes . So I thought he might be the son of the village chief.

Or he might be a leader of a unit of Viet Cong:

Armed with a french gun with folding stock.

And both figures together:

Just a harmless woman tending the field

This is another one of the VC in disguise by Empress Miniatures. A very nice sculpt, especially the face.

But if she gets disturbed, she runs to the hidden weapons and gets the gun out:

And both figures next to each other:

Seal armed with a chinese made AK47

After a longer brake, I had a lot to do in my daytime job, here is the next Seal. He is armed with a chinese AK47. the report of the gun would not give him away as an American. He is taking aim with a pistol equipped with a silencer. The figure is from the Seal pack by Empress Miniatures.

More to come hopefully in the near future…..

Navy Seals in ERDL camoflage

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.
