I painted the cloth, he has tucked into his ammo belt, as a US flag . At least I tried to.

Great job!  :D
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Here is another RPG-7 armed soldier of the NVA. This time in a kneeling firing position.

Nice work as always.

Good metals on the RPG, one quick question though - isnít the Grenade itself typically an olive drab green?

Indeed it is, my bad...

This is the miniature I will use as the 2nd fireteam leader in my games.

This is a miniature belonging to the HMG set made by Empress Miniatures. I based him individually to be able to use the miniature in different roles on the tabletop. As you can see he is equipped with binoculars so could be an observer not only for the HMG group but also for mortars etc.

Thanks Paul!

Today something completely different.

As I have build new riverbanks for my wargaming terrain I needed a bridge to cross the river. First of all I needed banks for the bridge. I build theses, as I build all my terrain tiles, from extruded polystyrene sheets. The bricks are engraved into the polystyrene. I added sand and gravel painted the banks and added self-made flocking material.



The Bridge itself is 3D printed the file is from a WOW Kickstarter. You can find links to the used stl files and many more pictures of the build here: https://wargamesgazette.com/2020/09/30/a-bridge-over-a-river/
