More danger in the jungle

At least for the US Marines . One more NVA Soldier. Only 6 more and I finished all the figures I got during the first release of these figures in summer 19. I am a slow painter I know.

After these 6 I will do some more US Marines , the third squad of my platoon and then the NVA soldiers I got at Crisis 19. There will be the things like a Huey etc in between , oh, and of course more jungle!

More Nathaniel Victor

Here is another NVA soldier. I am working on a platoon command group at the moment. Next up will be some RPGs then.

As you can see I added some elefantgrass to the base. These were offcuts of the artificial grass mat I used to do elegant grass with for my jungle terrain, more info here

More to come in the next days.

A rather green NVA soldier

IMG_2656

I painted this NVA soldier in an overall green uniform as some people said that there were no Kaki NVA soldiers uniforms. To my knowledge that is not true. I read kaki descriptions of NVA uniforms in many different books. I personally think Kaki and green together looks best.

More to come.

The first miniature after Crisis 19

So back to normal after Crisis 19. Returning on Sunday I thought it might be nice starting to paint some miniatures again. I had purchased quite a lot more Vietnam war models so I will continue to ad to my collection by painting them up through this winter. By the way I bought some MDF 25mm round bases. As I always ad a magnet to them, for easy storage, how would you do that with these bases? I used plastic slota bases up to now.

Here is the NVA figure I painted ( Empress miniature by Paul Hicks)
