'The enemy has overrun our positions. We're blowing everything up... Au revoir.'
- Last French radio transmission from Dien Bien Phu - May 7th, 1954.
I needed a brief intermission from the winter-themed figures I've been working on and so decided to finish this command stand for my (slowly) developing Indochine project.
These two figures are from Red Star Miniatures' 28mm 'Dien Bien Phu' range. Beautiful models sculpted by Paul Hicks - I highly recommended them. I've based them on a hex-shaped base so they can be easily identified as a command stand when on the tabletop.
I understand that Red Star is just about to release their range of Viet Mihn to serve as the French's intractable opponents and so I'm very eager to get my hands on some of those.
These two French paras will provide me with 10 points, inching me further along to my 700 point goal.
Now back to the ice and snow of Russia...
