The GIs are Command Decision mini's and are actually, upon further inspection, US Marines from early in the war, circa Operation Starlight.
However the reader will have to excuse the rough kit and "pretend" they are wearing US Army kit.
That being said, the large, yellow patches painted on their arms should help with your visualization efforts!
The NVA are painted in the old GW Graveyard Earth, which is my favorite drab-khaki color for totalitarian armies. The special helmets are painted folk-art "ivy green" or some shade like that, that was purchased years ago specifically for their helmets!
So for the American player - 1 stand down, about 20 more to go. For the NVA player, 1 stand down, about 51 more to go!!!!!! Huzzah!
|The stand looks nice - wasn't easy to get that effect either! glue sand down, then paint black, then drybrush a few different shades...and on and on and on|
|THey are wearing marine kit but that's ok - everyone gets the idea|
|Hardened regulars from the PAVN...|
|I actually like the dynamic poses with the CD modern minis.|
|Here they are, fanatically charging towards American M-60s!|
|I will experiment with different khakis but overall I like this color.|
