Private Leonard “Gomer Pyle” Lawrence



In the first part of the movie Full Metal Jacket, the recruits graduate and receive their Military Occupational Specialty assignments.  Pyle is assigned to Infantry. During the platoon’s final night on Parris Island, Joker discovers Pyle in the head loading his rifle and executing drill commands, and loudly recites the Rifleman’s Creed. This awakens the platoon and drill sergeant Hartman, who confronts Pyle and orders him to surrender the rifle. Pyle shoots Hartman dead and then commits suicide, while Joker helplessly watches in horror. The figure above is an Empress miniature cast for a different story line. Empress assume Pyle doesn’t shoot Hartman and doesn’t commit suicide and in doing so reaches the NAM as an M60 gunner.

Because i couldn't reach LAF yesterday here are two updates in one First:

Here is the first Hue city building for my ongoing Vietnam war project.The 3d file belongs to a series of buildings from the citadel of Hue, think base line green. The STL file comes from a Kickstarter by WOW Buildings.

Sergeant Cowboy from full metal jacket. Again a wonderfully sculpted characterful figure by Paul Hicks. This finishes off the full Metal Jacket miniatures done by Empress Miniatures. To my shame I have to admit that i missed to do a group shot . That will be rectified shortly.

Here is a RPG gunner for my NVA force. Nice is that he has a secondary arm sculpted on . This helps with the rules I play ( Danger Close Version 2). You can read more about the rules here:
