This is the medic of my first NVA platoon. He is from the French Indo China range from Empress miniatures. Fits in quite nicely with the new NVA range.

This is the HQ bugler of my NVA platoon. The NVA used buglers quite often to relay orders in the field. The figure is again from the Empress miniatures Indo China range.



Will post more these days, to get your thoughts from Corona! Stay safe Stay at home!

The NVA used quite a lot of banners for morale and command reasons. This is again a Indo China range figure by Empress miniatures.

Today I will show you how I paint my US Marines with, mainly, GW Contrast colors. As I have to stay at home this week , because of Corona, I had the time to take a picture after each step.

To find the steps from this:

I am liking your crashed Huey. I have a cheap 1/48 model kit Huey unmade that might get a similar treatment.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Nice work.  In your blog to mentioned the Instar Alpha paint range are similar to contrast paints.  They have the same ink/wash like properties as the contrast paint line? Do you like them better than the contrast line?
