Here is the next Grunt for my growing Vietnam war collection.



This time it is a figure by Gringo 40 miniatures. An afro-american ( hope that is the political correct designation) GI. These are wonderfull sculpts and are only slightly bigger then the Empress miniatures . They get along quite well so that I will mix both ranges in my american force.

I got the new North Vietnamese Army soldiers from Empress Miniatures in the post the other day. As there is not such a big variety at the moment ( there are many more to come from the talented Mr. Hicks!) I started to swop some heads on the miniatures. You can find other heads in the french indochine range of Empress.



The one in the middle is the original miniature. The one on the left and right has a new head. There is a little green stuff round the neck missing at the moment.

I have been thinking about doing the same, but I am not sure that I have the heart/courage to cut of the heads of those nice models.

it is quite easy as they more or less all wear scarfs, so cutting of the head is not that dangerous. I kept the cut of heads for other modeling needs.
