Newest FOW Paint jobs go live on the FOW website.

This week two new boxed sets are released for Battlefront miniatures FLAMES OF WAR – Vietnam range. Both sets of miniatures in the box pictures were painted by me. I'm really happy with how they came out. Pictures of the boxes and links to the website below.

M113 ACAV (VBX07)
The M113 ACAV (Armoured Cavalry Assault Vehicle) was developed by the 11th ‘Blackhorse’ Cavalry based on feedback from South Vietnamese units. They fitted an armoured tub for the commander and gun shields for two machine-guns on the sides, converting the M113 into a (rather large) tracked scout carrier.

M125/M106 Mortar Carrier Platoon (VBX09)
The M125 and M106 were variants of the M113 armoured personnel carrier that saw wide spread service during the course of the conflict in Vietnam. The M125 was armed with a M29 81mm mortar while its big brother, the M106 was armed with a M30 4.2in mortar. This allowed both vehicles to provide quick and responsive fire support to the
hard slogging grunts during a fire fight.

Over the next couple of months a whole series of FOW Vietnam boxed sets will be released that have my painting work on the box covers. – this is why my posts have been pretty thin for the last 4 months.

Great looking minis. You should be very happy. I have spoken to a number of people here in the States that have said the models look fantastic.

Any type of guide would be very well received!!

The Colour Kiwi said...

Well in that case i better do up a step by step and take some pictures. :)

Glad everyone likes them, the Sheridan's and Pattons look better.
