Viet Minh Assault French-Vietnamese Paratroopers From Empress

November 2, 2016 by stvitusdancern

Empress Miniatures has some exciting miniatures from FNG (yes, I know what that stands for) to offer you.

They have some Viet Minh miniatures in 28mm and in these new sets you can see how your assault troops will lead the way carrying all sorts of tools for breaching fortifications.

There are Banglore Torpedos, satchel charges, bundle charges (the one on a stick to help with placement), LMG to cover your troops and there are also ones carrying ladders to lay across barbed and concertina wire and lastly, there is a bazooka team.

On the defensive side, you have the French-Vietnamese Paratroopers who along with their other counterparts held off against larger numbers of the enemy at an isolated base, Điện Biên Phủ. Will you be able to hold against such odds?

What rules would you use to game this conflict?
