Tomrommels Vietnam war
« on: July 11, 2019, 04:59:29 PM »
I will use this thread for my forthcoming Vietnam War project. Yes, I am jumping on the bandwagon, too.
I will start collecting with a US Marine platoon made from the Empress and Gringo40 ranges. So watch this space for upcoming pictures.

But first I need some infos of the heave mind here.

what kind of buildings to use for Hue 1968. I know that there were a lot of french colonial buildings what else?

Are there any buildings in 28mm avalable that fit the bill?
In hoc signo vinces

Have a look at www.wargamesgazette.com

I am hoping that they do move on to doing buildings for Vietnam (as I am not looking forward to trying to add some peaked roofs to them.

Thanks for the ideas for buildings etc. Now i am thinking about vegetation .

I found some cheap Palm trees on eBay https://www.ebay.de/itm/12PCS-6-20cm-Highale-1-100-1-150-Green-Plastic-Palm-Model-Trees-HO-N-Layout/281889525054?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

But what about elephant grass etc what would you use?

If you want to read a really good book about the Grunts in Vietnam I can highly recommend

"The Boys of ’67: Charlie Company’s War in Vietnam " by Andrew Wiest.

It is a book about Charlie Company 9th Inf Division 43rd Rgt in 1967 in the Mekong Delta.
