Most of you are probably not aware , but I am a huge NAM fan . I spent months , and lots of money back in the day , building up gear for  my LRRP team . Many changes of mind came along whilst I was building the team . They started off as a four man team that would of been wearing 21st century toys Tiger-stripe unis , then Dragons Jake came out with a nice set of ERDL fatigues , and my team enlarged to six . Head wear was not really available then , and so I had  some custom boonies , from sacrificed " Jake`s " ERDL`s made by a guy in the States . My team is sporting those now . So I had just about all the kit I needed and was choosing which head-sculpts I was going to use..... and then BANG ! Figures with Cloth pouches and gear started to appear , there was no way I could afford to upgrade all that stuff , and so sadly not being able to keep up with the newer expensive kit , my LRRP gear went into boxes and was forgotten about  ....Until now . Well here goes nothing meet my team and some of the load out , I am open for suggestions for gear to add or takeaway for that matter .

Here is a gear list of origin , I think I got it right . Added some weapons my team might be using along with the shorty M.16`s .

It will probably take weeks to get my team together properly , but will update any improvements that happen as and when . Hope your enjoying them so far .

Oh yeah baby!!! Fantastic.

Have to admit WW2 isn't really my thing..my interest starts around Nam onwards. And you have captured that beautifully.

As Dal said..the equipment and weapons..the outfits and headsculpt.. everything is just perfect.

They look smashing alright!  cheers  cheers  cheers

Even the faces of the figures have a Nam look to them,  the camo uniforms are really nicely done, with fine scale stitching, the uniforms seem to hang realistically. Those two-tone boots are some of my faves.

To anyone who doesn't know what a blood expander pack is: it's an essential life saving piece of kit that substitutes lost blood, it's an artificial blood liquid (plasma?) I don't believe any military operation would take place without a good supply being carried into battle or being close by.. I read somewhere that the US military are now experimenting with dry blood powder? It takes up less space and much lighter to carry.

Lovely photos Mark! I'm really looking forward to seeing some outdoor photos of your team when the weather is fine bounce

I'm with Chris on this! Even as a kid in the 60's I felt WW2 was already history while Vietnam was on the news every night.

The team looks great Chip. Newer/better 1/6th kit is always coming out and you'll never keep up. Bite the bullet and go with what you have...it'll still look amazing!

Great looking figures Chip. I have a soft spot for the NAM theme & these are a beautiful example of why. I saw a film called how sleep the brave when I was a mere young one & since then. I have been smitten with anything war like. I'd love to see these in some sort of Dio or outside. They'd make for the perfect photo with those head sculpts & gear. They're appearance shouts loudly, they're NAM ready!
PS: Do it when it's raining....Steve wants to see a monsoon lol!

Thanks Ghost Recon , the monsoon is a nice thought , I had already thought of using a watering can . Well there is no point in us all getting wet is there Very Happy Think outside pics maybe a way off , but certainly not out of the question .

I know this is a "vintage" post at this point, but I just ran across it! These Nam era figs look fantastic! Incredible! All kinds of superlatives apply for the realism and the attention to detail!

I hope these figs are still part of your collection! If so, how about an update on their status, maybe with some new pics?
