I was able to get the Viet Minh based a couple of nights ago (luckily my wife had a tube of superglue since the cap on mine was glued on tight). I have two groups of Viet Minh, each basically a large or reinforced squad in size. Each unit consists of eight riflemen with assorted rifles, four sub-machine gunners with assorted SMGs, two light machine-gunners, and an officer. I wanted a larger force of Viet Minh as I plan on using a random force generator for the Communists and having a mix of troops will accommodate that.

For the French I have two smaller units, each consisting of three riflemen, one sub-machine gunner, one RTO (with SMG), one rifleman with an M1 Carbine, and an officer with an SMG. There is also one light machine-gun team. I am thinking I need to add one additional LMG team just in case the Viet Minh roll multiple LMG support.

Next steps will be getting the bases prepped and then a coat of primer.
