|Two Valkyrie crewman walk away from a rough landing in...my kitchen...|
I thought perhaps the Viet-Cron could use some "targets", so I dug through my lead pile and found these two 28mm downed pilot figures. I painted them with crew fatigues in a colour to match my Valkyrie models Sylvain had cited in his post.
These two figures are actually from the long-lost line of 28mm modern figures from Mongrel Miniatures. They had a fantastic range covering the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and these two are actually Soviet helicopter crewmen. Change the colours, and I think they make fine Valkyrie pilots for the 40k setting!

I look forward to seeing Sylvain's bonkers Viet-Cron trying to hunt these hapless fellows down on the gaming table sometime this year!
This is awesome Greg. I love this bit of 40K escalation you're having with Sylvain and his whacky Viet-Cron (though you may want to take into account that he may retaliate). I think these Mongrel pilots fit the bill very nicely as Imperial pilots (the green lens flare effect is brilliant). I hope I can be around when the two of you tangle with your respective collections. As a suggestion, you may want to consider building the equivalent of a brown-water riverboat for some 'Heart of Cronness' action.
