Vietnam: North Vietnamese Army and 2 VC Platoons

The first elements for my NVA army including 2 elements of VC, which I will play as lurkers for Brigadier: Vietnam.  The army is painted in khaki tan.

Vietnam: Cobra Gunship & Heavy Weapons Coy.

I've added more elements to my American army, 1 Cobra gunship and an Heavy Weapons unit.  All from the good folks at PicoArmor.  I used a different flocking this time and I think they turned out better.  The rotor blade on the cobra was very difficult, it's a garden wire and I knocked it off and glued it back on three times.

WWII: Considering a start on Weird War...

I've always been intrigued by alternate history and historical fiction.  I once ran a GURPS WWW2 game that was a lot of fun.  So I started thinking about what kind of WW2 could one fight if there had been no "bad guys" per se, but simply different factions battling things out.  Maybe this could have arose from the "1915 Ceasefire" or some other mechanism.  I don't know just yet but the thoughts are there.  Really I shouldn't do this as I have too many campaigns and interests, BUT one great advantage of being a Brigadier, FUBAR and a COMBAT: WW2 gamer are the small army lists.  I don't have to have hundreds of figures to play a game.  More to come.
