They look good.

So will you have them at Salute?

Yes but we really advice that you e mail us a shopping list as sales are pretty extraordinary based upon the first 24 hours .

Morning all. Many thanks for the kind words and comments. Really great encouragement for the entire Empress team, especially when releasing a new range. Also many thanks for your help and suggestions.

The range will develop extensively so please do not fear about investing in it and yes officers, radios, journalist, etc, etc will be covered along the way as well as other types such as Vietcong, NVA, ARVN etc, etc, then Aussies, Air Cav, Paratroops,  and most importantly other periods and times in the conflict. When we were soldiers obviously needs so attention at some point. Huge amounts to do.

Special forces will obviously occur and lets not forget civilians which are already designed.

Vehicles are under way and the first nearly finished. All in 1/50 scale. This is our default Empress scale.

Just need a time machine to speed things along or clone Paul.

Once again many thanks for your supportive comments  :-*

All sounds great Paul.  8)

You probably have it in mind but can I also mention a couple of Corpsman poses (lots of stories from Hue about their bravery).

Apologies if I've missed this somewhere already; are the new Hue figures comparable in size/scale etc to the French Indochina ones that Mr Hick's also sculpted? I have some of those so I can use them as a guide for comparison with my existing figures. Very much looking forward to seeing some painted examples.

Thatís excellent news. It would be nice to see decently sculpted ARVN and Australians. Hopefully other eras might include the early part of the war with Marines in OG-107 fatigues toting M-14s. I have always wanted to do Operation Starlite, the early part of the war is an interesting period and gives the opportunity to use all kinds of fun toys like LVTP-5s.

Please, please get the Australians right (Iím sure you will), they arenít just yanks in floppy hats. There are a number of folk on LAF who can give feedback on WIP.

By the by can I order some of the marines online and have them picked up at Salute? Nic has kindly offered to pick up some orders for me. Just wondering the best way to notify that they will be picked up not mailed.
Eu sempre te amarei
Onde estiver estarei
Oh meu Mengooo

Tu ťs time de tradiÁ„o,
RA«A, AMOR e PAIX√O
Oh meu Mengooo!

Iíve sculpted them on the same armature as the Indo-China figures. They will match.

Re the pre order  please e mail us and we will get them ready to collect. If you want to pay before collection we will send a Paypal request. [email protected]

Don't worry the Australians will be very good. Now that's a statement I hope I do not regret.  :? Weapons just being sculpted. Long Tan here we come.

Wow, working on the Australians already! That makes me think there's a LOT going on behind the scenes. Looking forward to seeing what's next.

The new packs have been cast and pre orders are now shipping out.  ;)

If you do plan to pop along to Salute we advice that you send us a pre show shopping list to ensure we save you some packs. We are on stand TE05.

More sculpts being worked on as we speak.
