Ask, Ash, and ye shall receive... :)

I had a little extra time today, so I popped over to my Wargame HQ (my wife calls it the ToyBox...), and took these.

First 3 pics are the figs I just painted.  All 28mm Empress.  Left to right are the Plt Ldr, his RTO, the attached FO, and the medic.

Last pic is the whole platoon HQ.  Plt Sgt and runner are WI Giants in Miniatures ("Sgt Barnes and Pfc Noble"), shown previously on this thread.

As I mentioned, weapons squad leader and M60 teams are next - painting on them should commence tomorrow...

Okay - Here are the M60 teams for the weapons squad for my US platoon.  The first 3 pics are the squad leader and M60 team 1.  The last 3 pics are M60 team 2.  Both teams have a spare ammo humper taken from the squad's AT teams (the AT assets will be left behind when the platoon goes outside the wire...).  5 of the 7 figs are Empress miniatures (in fact. most of figs in the platoon are Empress...).  The squad leader and one of the ammo humpers are Black Sun figs (by Bob Murch).

Feel free to comment and/or critique, should you be so inclined.  Hope you all like them.  I've rather enjoyed painting them!

PAVN platoon HQ and DShK team is next up...

Thanks, chaps! 

Next up is on the PAVN side of the war.  First 3 pics are the platoon HQ, and last 3 are a DShK team.  All are 28mm Empress Miniatures.  Again, perfectly lovely to slap some paint on... :D.

Enjoy - comments/critiques welcome...
