Have you thought of making a Robert Capa figure?

Capa was actually one of the first photojournalists killed in Vietnam. He was following a French unit. However it was before the US got
involved in the conflict there...

He stepped up on the bank of a rice paddy to photograph the troops, and stepped on a land mine. He lost too much blood before they could do
anything for him.

He led a very interesting life. I have his biography. It's been some years since I've read it.

Chip, you may be right about him being a little before the time frame of your figures.

It has been years since I read his biography, but just looking online Wikipedia lists
him as dying May 25, 1954, in Thái Bình Province. Which is actually in North Vietnam.
It looks like other countries were in Vietnam a time before the US got involved. Wikipedia
mentions that some consider him the greatest war and adventure photographer in history.

He photographed a few wars, including WWII. He was born in Hungary in 1913. That
would make him 40 or 41 years old at the time of his death. He was born Endre Ernő Friedmann,
but used the name Robert Capa as a more "American" name. He would greet people at his office
as the darkroom guy, so they wouldn't know that he wasn't actually American.

He had a lot of charm and was known as a ladies man.

How he looked in WWII:

Correspondent Round Up  Portra10

A picture he is famous for, although some think it was staged. It's supposed to be the moment of death
for a soldier:

Correspondent Round Up  Milici10

A photo from the D-Day landing. His images had an eerie look, it's said to be from botched
film processing:

It just hit me that I should make a figure of him. Does anyone know of a head
sculpt that looks like this? Bushy eyebrows.

A bit of modelling paste over normal brows and some paint and you've got it.
