Another RPG armed VC or NVA soldier. After a longer brake, due to work constrains, I have started painting again. I also started with a bigger gaming project of a campaign of patroling in the Nam. More on this in the future.
Here is another RPG armed NVA soldier. I needed a bit more firepower for my NVA force .
Recoilless rifle on the move
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:
Navy Seal with heavy punch
This one is armed with a LAW, sawn off shotgun and a light machine gun. Furthermore he has 2 fragmentation grenades.
Seal with M60
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.
Navy Seal RTO
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 .
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.
The proud owner of a rice paddy
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!
All my finished VC so far
Here are all the civilian/VC figures I finished up till now.
More to come…
Mamasan got some rice on the market
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….
