Another RPG armed VC or NVA soldier. After a longer brake, due to work constrains, I have started painting again. I also started with a bigger gaming project of a campaign of patroling in the Nam. More on this in the future.

Last weekend I finished some scatter terrain pieces to be used as swamp area. I am building up the last missing terrain pieces for a campaign game set during the Vietnam war, north of the parrots beak area. This area of Vietnam was a large swamp and abandoned rice paddy area near the border to Cambodia. So an infiltration point for the NVA and VC. But back to the terrain pieces. I want to depict the swamp as individual scatter terrain to be able to have different pathways through the swamp. The whole area will hinder movement due to being difficult terrain.



More about how I build the pieces at: https://wargamesgazette.com/2021/10/18/some-swamp-terrain-pieces/

Here is my latest painting effort. Painted with GWs contrast paints. The figures are from Empress Miniatures sculpted by Paul Hicks. A lovely little viginette.

Here is the first part of the mortar team moving the mortar to a new emplacement. The figure is humping the base plate and tube of the mortar.

They look quite nice!  But that poor schlock carrying the tube AND the baseplate is gonna have a sore shoulder.... ;)

After a longer brake from modeling and painting. I could start a new project over the x-mas holidays. A LVPT5. The model was printed on my resin printer in 1/50 scale. The figures are from Empress.

Here is the printed model:



And a picture of the finished model before painting. The sandbags are made from green stuff, the c ration boxes, bags and ammo boxes are resin prints.



And the vehicle with added basecolors.



The miniatures will be painted with GWs contrast paints the rest will be done the traditional way….
