So firstly, you can all blame Shelldrake for getting me all excited about my all time favorite modern war, with all his cool Nam trap ideas, he's effective terrain and well painted miniatures, If you haven't checked out his blog ... get over there, its full of great ideas that you can pretend are your own ! , all this has resulted in me starting up yet another! project, which I will call 'Welcome to the Nam' , now that I have finished blaming some one else for my own short comings Hahaha, I want you all to have a look at a couple of Marines I painted up.
So these are 28mm miniatures, they are from Baker company, and are some of my favorite and most characterful miniatures, the sculptor really managed to capture the feel of the Nam, and even some of the stereo typical racial features.... please don't take that the wrong way, all in all excellent miniatures, nice detail, correct period webbing and gear, no flash, minimal mould lines, and to boot Danny over at Baker Company is friendly and fast to deliver the goods, this is my second order with them, you cant go wrong with Baker Company.
With these two guys I wanted to test out the green colour schemes I had chosen and wanted to see if I could capture some kind of a faded jungle look with the uniforms, I 'm fairly happy with the outcome, the uniforms look well used and I hope this has translated into the photos I have taken, as always your comments are apreciated and welcomed, I will try and crank out about 10 Marines, more soon.
