They look fantastic for french indochina !!
This is great news. This is the war during which I grew up & it is great pity it was largely disregarded in our beloved hobby. Hopefully even Strelets will consider this period. Please think about producing: Australians, South Koreans, Cambodians, US Navy, US Airforce, US tank riders, Chinese Army. May be you also consider the conflict with the French -Dien Bien Phu. Help us move from dreams to reality.
I agree, these are awesome! More Viet-Congish than regular army like the ESCI set!
Any idea if Orion will release US sets for the Vietnam War Series?
Quite a lot of left-handers in this set.
Nice subject that really enhances and expands the existing set available. The anti-resistance troops came as a bit of a surprise, I was expecting Cossacks or Handschar, these look as though it is meant to be Gestapo and SS for Western Europe - not as much wargaming potential in my view.
Yes they have their uses but to me there were less stand up battles in the West because the terrain wasn't suitable to protect large scale formations, obviously, the Maquis were an exception but for a long time virtually all they could do was lie low and survive. Most of what happened in the West was raids and arrests of agents and small groups because they had been informed on or their radio transmissions had been detected. The Gestapo men are a bit different but supporting troops in this scale are pretty much indistinguishable from normal SS or Wehrmacht troops. Don't get me wrong, if you can make use of them then that is great but for me they don't have a great appeal.
Forgot to mention: the Green Berets
Nice figures, good to see there are no weird ones like that Chechen war figure who looked like he was jerking off.
