UVS: Vietnam - M48A3 WIP 20/07/2022
« on: April 21, 2019, 03:50:44 PM »
Empress has just released a new range of figures for the Tet Offensive 1968, specifically Hue.

If you are reading this in April 2019, you may ask why I mention it. Well, it has taken me two weeks to paint two figures (and a building), so this thread will return occasionally and readers will wonder what the fuss is about (say in 2031 when I finally finish the last of the "current" releases ^___^).

First two figures from NAM-1.








I did have some minor issues with mould lines.


Now another six USMC and five VM to base and paint.

Nicely painted.
My guys are in the paint line.
I have to get some pirates painted for a convention in May.
Then the Few, the Proud, the Marines. ;D

All of them.

I do need to have a look at some skin highlights and paint the doll figure.

Nice.
I was debating with myself whether the guy pointing was black or white*. He was really the only one where I had my doubts. Now that I see you went with black I might have to change my guy to that as well.

*Sorry for the lack of pc but for clarity it was easier.
