todays Grunt

Here is the next Grunt for my growing Vietnam war collection.

This time it is a figure by Gringo 40 miniatures. An afro-american ( hope that is the political correct designation) GI. These are wonderfull sculpts and are only slightly bigger then the Empress miniatures . They get along quite well so that I will mix both ranges in my american force.

Painted again with Contrast paint from games workshop.

I got my plastic rainforest vegetation in the post yesterday so will start on some scatter scenery shortly.

The beginning of my first squad of a US Marines platoon , Vietnam1968

As you can see here and here  I started using the new Games workshop Contrast paints on the new Vietnam war ranges of Empress and Gringo 40.

As I am on my summer holiday now I took a few figures with me and will paint them up over the coming fortnight.

Here is the first figure finished. Grunt No I , a Empress miniature sculpted by Paul Hicks:
