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:
Here is another VC soldier with the traditional vietnamese “No’n La’ ” headgear. The head is from Empress as is the body of the figure.
As usual I used GW contrast paints
Below is a picture next to the original figure:
This is a figure with a head swap. The figure is a regular NVA RPG gunner . I changed the head against a head with a traditional hat to make him look more like a VC. The head and the figure are from Empress.
Here is the original miniature next to the one with the new head:
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.
She is on her way back home after a long day in the family rice paddys.
Or is she on her way to join the other VC of the village tonight?
Both miniatures together:
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:
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:
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…..
This one is armed with a LAW, sawn off shotgun and a light machine gun. Furthermore he has 2 fragmentation grenades.
