Back to a good ol' military subject again!

This figure Warriors 1/35 scale NVA Regular, item number 35499. It is is a beauty - oozing with detail. The pose is casual and versatile, and the colour choice is up to you as the figure could be either NVA or VC. There is plenty of reference material around.

Inside the box are five resin pieces. Cleanup was a breeze and fit was close to perfect, but care was required when removing the AK47 from its casting block.

I decided to apply a fairly standard scheme using two slightly different Russian Greens and a Tan colour for the ammunition pouch. Paints used were Vallejo Model Colour acrylics, all hand-painted using Franchville Taklon brushes.



The base is Das modelling clay stippled with a toothbrush, with static grass laid on top. The skulls are from Warriors as previously reviewed on HyperScale.

The overall effect I was trying to achieve was a Cambodian trooper standing over one of the killing fields of the 1970s.

This is a great figure that I can recommend highly.

Thanks to VLS / Warriors for the review samples
