It has been a while since i provided any update. Work/Family has been hectic to say the least!
I have finally had a chance and also the motivation to sit down and start working on some figures again. This time continuing with the long delayed Vietnam project. This range will be aiming a platoon level skirmish actions so from this angle i wont be doing a full coverage like some other companies. rest assured though there will be all the basic figures to fill out platoons etc that will cater for most.
I am planning on 10-15 figures per set initially. Australians, VC, NVA and Americans. The Australians will be around 10-15 figures to cover off a basic infantry section and probably a Pl HQ as well.
With the VC i will be doing a basic set of Main Force type with automatic weapons and local type with rifles and older SMGs. about 4-5 figures each. I will then have a 4-5 figure set with support weapons namely RPG, RPD and RPK and i even have an old Japanese LMG.
NVA will be a couple of AK packs one in Pith helmet and one with bush hat and then a support weapon pack and HQ Pack.
US Army will be 4-5 x M16's, an M79 pack, M60 Pack (1 x kneeling team and 1 x standing team) and a Pl HQ.
Anyway sounds like allot, but i have 70% of it done so hope i can keep the mojo flowing to finish these sooner rather than later.
VC with automatic weapons. Aimed as main force VC where bush Hats seem to be worn most with mix of AK's and SKS. Local VC will have the Rice hats that we all know. But either pack will internix as you want.
Australian Section. I like mainly patrolling type poses, which i hope is reflected in these guys. Also had a 77 set radio mastered to add some extra detail. I still have not finished the M79 figure though. While i am generally happy with the position of the M79, getting a decent position for the SLR is proving a real challenge! might have to change the whole figure.
Heaps of other figures done or almost done, but these guys are the current WIP.
Also below a couple more modern IDF with Tavor.
Comments and suggestions are certainly welcome.
