Finally, I am in!!!

Excellent. You will not regret it dear sir.

Empress currently have about another 13 figures sculpted we have not shown, but will. I have also seen the first personality which is nearly finished and to die for. USMC will continue rolling off the production line and will be joined in about a month or so by civilians for both town and country and almost immediately by armed civilians....Vietcong. Then either NVA or ARVN and of course vehicles. You can of course wait but to be honest if you are waiting for a finish to this range it will be a VERY long time coming.  lol

Those look great...

How many USMC figure packs will you have in total? I saw 4 packs on the website.

Oh man, i have 10mm and 20mm Nam, but I feel a third scale coming in.

It is good to know there is a plan, and a long term one at that ^__^.

I have delivered a further 24 USMC for Empress. They are in the moulding process. That will be an initial 10 packs to start with. 6 M16 and 2 each of Blooper and M60s.

Not my period but fantastic none-the-less :-*

But looking at your range, I can't but help think that you need an awfully big marine called Camouflage :o

If you know the song I'm refering too, again lovely stuff

Any clues on the character figures? There's no shortage of inspiration.

Also they have released the first taster for a new film coming out on Long Tan. Called Danger Close, obviously copied from our rule set don't you know  lol

Looks good with some excellent attention to detail such as the rubber plantation and the small huts. It will be interesting to see how they cope with in the film with the incredibly heavy rain experienced during the battle.

Also have M16's mixed in with the SLR's plus an Owen SMG which is authentic. Excellent and we have them all made for our ANZAC range coming out in time for the films release if not earlier.  Currently deep in research for this range.

Mind if I send you a PM on the topic of research ? It’s a subject close to my heart. I know you will do the best job available, sadly those that have started Australian ranges in the past have buggered things up.
