Here is a US Marine armed with a LAW for busting those VC bunkers. Another Empress Miniatures figure. One more to go and the next fireteam is finished.

Thought this might be news worth sharing:

Rubicon writes on facebook: Our “New Project of the Month” for December 2020… the Bell UH-1 Iroquois “Huey”. Another FIRST for Rubicon Models – something that is airborne! This will be a multi-sprue plastic kit in 1/56 scale covering the UH-1D and UH-1H variant. Final features are not confirmed but will include full interior, stretcher variant, and multiple weapon system support. That sounds really good and the renders look really promising:

It looks great. But It might be a bit on the small side.

Rubicon are really testing my decision to go for Empress vehicles (evidence so far seems to suggest a decent range is in the offing).

I wonder if I can get away with 1/56 for helis (might look better when flying across the table in a slightly smaller scale) and the corgi choppers have gotten expensive these days...?

If not serviceable with the Empress figures, I suppose they can still make for great crashed objective markers. Rather than having to trash a Corgi one for it.

@tomrommel1:  Great job on the porter!
