Very nice indeed. :-*

Just as a note, if you are doing more peasant civvies then steer away from white. White is the traditional colour of mourning in Vietnam.  That's not to say it's not worn, it most certainly is, many female school uniforms feature white ao dais and today most things go but 50+ years ago it would be uncommon in traditional peasant pyjamas,  the ao ba ba. Rural folk being more conservative and superstitious as a rule.

Ficou marcado na história
E no Rio năo tem outro igual
Só o Flamengo é campeăo mundial
E agora seu povo

Thanks for that, Carlos.  I'll keep that in mind when my Empress civilians make their way to the head of my painting line...

It's took awhile but I've finally managed to add some additions to my collection, I seem to have struggled to back into things but here goes, most of my collection are on single figure bases for my infantry but I decided to add a few bases with a bit more character and multiple figures. I'm hoping it worked, I ha e updated my bag with a bit more info and photos. Please feel free to rake a look.

If all goes well I should be adding some more stuff real soon.

They look great, particularly like the group of three behind the fallen tree.

Thanks guys, I wanted the appearance of taking cover/getting ready for a firefight. The poses of the figures certainly lend themselves to it nicely.
