Thanks, I'm quite happy with the way it all turned out, was a good practice for adding smaller pouches to smaller models and vast improvement over my earlier attempts.
These guys have been sat languishing in a box for a while, along with four 28mm RhSAS & four 20mm Rhodesians in shorts, and I (quite supprisingly) have no current interest in finishing them. Enthusiasm has wanned somewhat, just happens I suppose.
I am however still enthused with Empress's latest offerings in the 28mm Vietnam range and will grab both the British & German WW2 mortar teams in due course.

They look fantastic

I'm particularly impressed by the sculpted waterbottle pouches

Thanks. Unfortunatly I can take no credit for the waterbottles
...(the waterbottles are from an old Tamiya kit).

That bloke is an Empress modern Russian with a Eureka ZANLA head.
Backpack is part of the original sculpt; there are a couple of figures in that pack (RUS05) with the same backpack, they would be fairly straight forward to remove and add to something else.

Salvaged the remains of well chopped Empress Anzac, I'd previously used his head and radio pack.
This guy is suppossed to look the part of a well kitted up RLI.

Thanks chaps, these are the last remaining occupants of the 'box of apathy'; started quite a while ago (going by the date of the picture, got to this stage Feb'19) and may now get finished...
One bloke has had a head swap, and I'd started doing something to the helmet
