Slowly but surely, and despite a very busy March at work, I continue adding pieces to our Vietnam project. I managed to make some sceney pieces, including some first attempts to have bamboo thickets using BBQ wooden sticks and scale railway flock ....
...as well as rice paddies.
I have also acquired a large blister of Vietnamese civilians from West Wind Productions, not the highest quality minis but there are not many alternatives and these were relatively unexpensive.
Civilians are not just a decorative or expendable item playing with Charlie Don't Surf, the platoon-size Vietnam era rules of the TooFatLardies factory. This rules set provide an important role to civilians in the victory conditions of the Free World-side player, loosing victory points if they suffer damage and having to play with some severe restrictions if intending to use artillery is populated areas.
I'm now entering into another period of traveling at work and therefore limited time to paint or play; but with the Easter holidays looming now, I hope to make some additional progress in two weeks time.
