Tiger Tiger burning bright

I got these little fellas last saturday and couldn't wait to start on them, they are the recon patrol figures from Empress Miniatures Vietnam range. Six figures in total and beautifully sculpted by Paul Hicks, now I've been a fan of this range since day one and if things continue like this I'm sure I will be adding more and figures as the range grows.

The figures arrived in excellent condition and with very slight casting lines which are easy to file away.
They do look as good in real life as the photos portray,  they have a mix of weapons and carry the mountain of kit you would expect.

The full recon squad

They really do paint up a treat, I'm not the world's greatest photographer but hopefully they are good enough to give you an idea how detailed these figures are.

 I have had quite a bit of feedback on the Tiger stripe so fingers crossed time allowing I will do a couple of tutorials around US Vietnam based uniforms, so watch this space as they say. 
I do have another team which hopefully will be in ERDL camo but that will depend on how well or how badly my attempt at the camo turns out. 

Finally my full 3 squads so far 

So the project continues, I have another full squad of Marines to add when time arises and of course the stalled squads of VC! I really cant get to grips with them I'm afraid. So thanks for looking, I'm keen to see what else Empress have to offer as this range grows.

Thanks for looking
