and if you want to use those nice minis in some historical but manageable tabletop scenarios and want some sources..Gallica on line free book scans is your place...many good texts on Tonkin for the period represented by Gringo minis..and also if French is not your cup of tea..they are quite a few nice sources with TOES and illustrations...among many this one is a very good one...more than 20 ready maps calling for small scenarios and all the Toes with small columns of Légionaires, Marsouins, Tirailleurs Annamites Vs Chineese/Vietnameese bandits...i already downloaded  over 50 titles dealing with French Colonial Wars in Morocco , Africa and Asia..all good sources..but unfortunatly until now i'm only able read them on my notebook...still too heavy for my Tablet...
