    Here is a figure from Miniature Alliance, of a Vietnam era Grenadier who is reflecting on the past battles he has survived during urban conflict in Hue.
    I used Acrylics for the painting and then dusted it lightly with Mig pigments.
    The base has been slightly modified by adding a little extra rubble and the palm frond plant.
    This was a very nice figure to work on, hope you like it.
    Cheers

    Nice one Andy,

    I like these comtemplative stances. Much more realistic and poignant than the typical legs-wide-apart heroic stances.

    This is a lovely pose. The rusty red/brown used to shade the greens of the tunic and pants is a bit troubling for me. Looks like a wash that needs a tad toning down. Don't take that too harshly, over all this pice turned out well.

    To Sambaman

    I get what you are saying about the red brown, however, being in Vietnam, known for its red earth, and studying some photos,this to me is correct.
    Also having served in the military for ten years myself, l know the stitching on military uniforms is quite heavy, and dirt and grime will gather in those areas, especially in tropical climates where you tend to sweat alot and your clothing never tends to be completely dry.
    I can see though how you may think it is a little over the top, and l thankyou for your comments and the fact that you are taking notice of my work, this is a compliment to me.
    Cheers
    Andrew
