Flames of War variant Tour of Duty is seeing a whole bunch of new miniatures coming to the jungles of Vietnam. Check out the US Tanks, Mortars, Helicopters and more coming on the 23rd of March…
First up we have the UH-1D Slick and M48A3 Patton offering both a way in and out of the hot zone and some heavy fire support once you get there. Those Patton Tanks really are something special and look pretty mighty!
But all that vehicular power won’t do much good in the depths of the jungle. At that point you’re going to need some infantry and here they are. Above are the Rifle Platoon, Mortar Platoon and 4.2″ Mortar Platoon allowing you to stalk ahead under some covering fire.
And just like with the Vietnamese you can also get yourself a Tropic Lightning token and dice set to personalise the experience on the tabletop. Those dice really are quite smart.
It would be interesting to play as the Vietnamese in the conflicts of Vietnam, but I think that far to many of the US troops and vehicles are just too cool to pass up!
Now you’ve seen kits from both sides, what would you pick?
