Here is another RPG armed NVA soldier. I needed a bit more firepower for my NVA force .
My newest addition to the ranks of my NVA force is a recoilless rifle on the move. This one comes with another one deployed in the same pack. Figures are from Empress Miniatures from their indochine war range. Works for the American war, too.
Below are pictures of the 1st assistant gunner.
And the ammo bearer:
The gunner with the gun:
This one is armed with a LAW, sawn off shotgun and a light machine gun. Furthermore he has 2 fragmentation grenades.
Here is the heavy weapons specialist of my Seal Team. He is armed with an M60. Ammo is supplied from a ammo feed system taken from a chopper door gun.
This Navy Seal is the RTO of my Team. He is equiped with a Prick25 radio. He holds a smoke grenade in his right hand ready to throw .
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.
This Vietnamese village elder looks proudly over the rice paddies of his village, or is he looking for the imperialist enemy?
OOPs, he had a rifle hidden in the elephant grass behind him… better look more closely next time!
Here are all the civilian/VC figures I finished up till now.
More to come…
Another civilian miniature. This time a female one. She is carrying an upturned wicker hat draped with a piece of cloth. This was very typical for carrying goods. So after leaving the goods purchased on the market she goes to the weapons cache to do some hunting…..
Another guerrilla fighter to wreak havoc….
This is the first digger of my 5th rifle group. Again an Empress Miniature.
