Indochina

Picture from Eureka Miniatures website
As a bit of a sidebar to my Vietnam gaming, I just placed an order with Eureka Miniatures USA for some 15mm French and Viet Minh for Indochina.  For quite some time I have been looking at these figures, and with a bit of a renewed interest in Vietnam of late, including sifting through the Indochina board on the Fields of Fire forum, I decided a small purchase was in order.  I was originally going to purchase a platoon for each side, but settled on fewer figures, basically a heavily supported section, with rifles, SMGs, LMGs, leaders, and RTOs.  As I have plenty of jungle terrain ready to roll (Eleven Tree Designs buildings along with several terrain pieces), adding some figures to go back to the 1950s was a fairly easy decision.  Paint jobs will be simple as I plan to just do some olive drab for the French (I might even try some camo...nah, I doubt it!)

The force pool I selected probably will not allow use of Ambush Valley or any other form of Ambush Alley/Force on Force since I will not have enough figures for each player to run a section, so I will have to do a bit of digging for a set of rules.  The goal is to have each player control a handful of figures.

More on this once the figures arrive!
