Empress Miniatures 28mm Vietnam War ARVN to be released.

As we have previously said we are moving through the various forces and troop types in as logical ( well to us.) way as we can. We are trying to make our range by far the best researched and sculpted, as well as the best quality that you expect from an Empress Miniatures product. Obviously, this does take time but with approaching 250 figures already in this range and more due to be released in the coming days and weeks, as well 66 figures in the French Indo China range, 18 vehicles, terrain ranging from French colonial buildings to a complete Firebase we think that we have succeeded so far and we have no plans to stop.

We still have more Marines to release, some very soon, as well as more ANZACS, VC, special forces etc, etc, etc,.

However as planned we will very soon see the first of the ARVN troops arrive in the shop.

These guys will accurately represent the ARVN forces that fought throughout the conflict and after the majority of Free World Forces retired from the conflict. As the rest of the range they will accurately represent the physical differences that exist between Vietnamese and western troops and you can be sure that our sculptor for this range, the incredibly talented Paul Hicks, will create simply the best.
   
No pictures as yet, that’s due in a few days, so a nice picture of the Empress South Vietnamese (ARVN) flag sheet. 

So stay tuned for further details later in the week.

Looking forward to this. Hoping the puppet forces will cover both ends of the war.

Empress has a policy of always treating all combatants with respect in the way it sculpts its figures. No caricatures from us  lol

First picture at the end of the week.  ;)

We will obviously fill you all in on what they will be as regards troop type. I think you will be happy which is a bold statement but I am anyway as they are a very sexy unit.

Of course. I was originally going to say love, as I did in a post from at least a year ago anticipating - OK, demanding - the inclusion of ARVN troops, but for some reason changed it as I was about to type it, possibly thinking it sounded too hippyish.

Speaking of hippies, any plans to represent the home front?

No but its an interesting idea.

Not sure what gameing/ sales potential there is and sculpting time is of a premium.

Not sure there’s much of a market for people wanting to game Kent State or even the 1968 Democratic Convention if it comes to that.

On the other hand, if you had this in mind I’d go for it….

I dunno whether you’ve ever seen  WR: Mysteries of the Organism, the ‘70s Yugoslav film that clip was lifted from but it er ‘elevates’ the concept of art film to new levels. It’s almost impossible to categorise but if you have a taste for the offbeat, it’s definitely that. If Terry Gilliam had access to better drugs, it’s the film he might have made.

Oh and as an added bonus it explains the Kate Bush song ‘Running Up That Hill’. You will definitely never hear that song in the same way again.  lol
