They have many uses. Thank you! Please continue with more Syrian/Arab figures. If I can make a request how about Syrian tankers, Syrian/Kurd female tankers and such?

I disagree with you there sir. Many reporters carried weapons during the Vietnam War. More recently, Patrick O'Donnell carried an M16A4 while he was with the Marines in Fallujah in November 2004. His book 'We Were One: Shoulder to Shoulder with the Marines Who Took Fallujah' is one of the best accounts anyone has written about Phantom Fury.

These are amazing figures. And probably next on my to buy list. I'm even tempted with some of the WW2 German stuff, which really isn't my area of interest.

For those of you who haven't seen it I urge you to check out the real life photograph this is based on. D-Day miniatures have posted it on their website. http://ddayminiaturestudio.com/135-scale-2.html

Not saying it doesn't happen, but I feel it shouldn't. You can't objectively take pics and write stories if you are too busy fighting. You can also become biased to one side or the other. Looking at the actual pic, I'm guessing the guy on the right is actually her security force/body guard/interpreter. He looks more military than correspondent. Great figures either way.

Congratulations on the creation of your two new outstanding figures Pavel! Top notch figure making! The photos of the reference photo used for your master making is spot on. I am sure the AK could easily be dropped and slung satchel or camera bag could be put in its place in the drop of a hat by a modeller. Keep up the awesome work! More modern civilian figures please!

Correspondents on the run. One gets shot doing something careless and stupid and their network bozos spend 48 hours promoting his/her bravery. And not one of them can do the work of Earnie Pyle. I loved the book that was written about him, comparing Pyle to dashing Ernest Hemingway. For Hemingway, his coverage was all about him, while for Pyle it was about the troops who had no say about being there.

I think you might want to look into Ernie Pyle's death before you talk about careless. Cool figures, though.
