Some Modern US Army - Work in Progress

I just wanted to post a quick update of what I'm working on. The Romans I showed last time were a bit of a chore, so I decided to do something completely different and revisit some Modern 20mm topics. For this I chose the old Vepa 1/72 US Army figures now sold by Empress. They are the best 20mm metal moderns - it's just too bad that most other ranges don't come close.  

For now I'm doing a squad in Universal Camouflage Pattern (the grey kind) and another in Multicam (the newer green camo). 

Here's an incomplete figure in Multicam. I used my old tutorial as a basis, but have added some additional fine washes and highlights. 

Here's a contrast between the two. I'm doing the UCP guys as 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan in the mid 2000s, and the Multicam ones as contemporary 82nd Airborne. 

Designated marksman - I love this mini. 

Thanks for looking. 


  1. THey look really great- have you seen the Under Fire miniatures range of moderns? THey use the same sculptor.



    1. Thanks! I've been looking at their Russians. They seem to be pretty compatible.
