Thanks guys. I added some pigments, mainly to the stone, just to make it a bit grubby.

Took some pics with NVA

Thanks David.
I'm thinking now that I should have beveled the edges on the other jungle bits, ho hum.
I'll stop taking pictures of this thing now...

I just thought, I have some of the Indo China French blokes, should have seen what they looked like in the jungle.

I recall Paul mentioned, a while back, that Dennis Hopper's character may put in an appearance in a pack of Photographers at some stage; the other's being Don McCullin, Catherine Leroy & maybe Larry Burrows.

Superb. :-* :-* :-* :-*

I saw that on FB, looking forward to seeing it make an appearance in a new terrain piece.
It's not a bad casting, only one really bad seam on mine, which hides fairly well. A small hole (with a pipe) on the back, presumably for attaching an air hose.
Plus a rather large gap in the top of the head ( for the bubbles to escape). Easy to fill, anyway. Then just gave it a coat of primer etc...

I bet they'd look pretty good.  Or Vietnam US Army/USMC, British/Commonwealth WW2, Japanese WW2, pulp, or, or, or....it's a pretty versatile piece actually... :D
