War reporters / correspondents are representatives of the media who, in case of an international armed conflict, are accredited to and accompany the armed forces without being members thereof. They cover stories first-hand from a war zone. Their job bring them to the most conflict-ridden parts of the world. Once there, they attempt to get close enough to the action to provide written accounts, photos, or film footage. Thus, this is often considered the most dangerous form of journalism.

Both figures wear Ballistic Armor Vests with big, removable, velcro PRESS labels in front and back and PASGT helmets with 4 studs.
They are cast in resin in 1/35 scale and each comes in 3 parts ; body, helmet and hands with cameras.
Note that hands with camera on both figures will need extra care when removing from sprue and assemblying as some parts looks fragile.
Lady Sunny wears a long sleeved shirt, blue jeans and high boots. Besides well defined facial details on her cute face and crisp cloth folds; details like shemag/ neck scarf with tassels on her neck, cloth cellular phone case in front, personal bag hang on the left side with strap crossed on right shoulder and pose of hands with camera are all well represented.
Cameraman Big Daddy's facial details are well sculpted and shows a well aged and experienced look. He wears a T-shirt, cargo pants with loaded side pockets and tough boots. Loaded pockets of ballistic vest, camcorder bag on the back with strap crossed on right shoulder, battery pack on the left, wrist watch, hands with camcorder and teddy bear with chain hang on the left side are all well defined.
These are very nice posed, well designed and cast 1/35 scale figures that can be used in many different modern conflicts.
