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:

VC with “No’n La'” headgear

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:

VC RPG gunner

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:

A little support for the VC

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.

Son of the village headman

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:

Just a harmless woman tending the field

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:

Seal armed with a chinese made AK47

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…..
