Empress Miniatures have now added their Vietnam War Civilian packs into the mix for those wanting to play out this conflict in 28mm scale. Have a peek at the new metal miniatures...

Vietnam War Civilians #1 - Empress Miniatures

There is a good selection of different civilians here which you could use in your games. Between the different packs, there are men and women, both young and old, which would be good for dotting around villages and towns as your troops move up to fight the enemy.

Civilians can play an interesting role in the way you approach games set during the Vietnam War. A lot of the time, the US soldiers would have to be in their toes as the enemy could well have been hiding amongst the populace, ready to ambush them at a moments notice. This means that when you're playing your games you'll perhaps be able to add in mechanics for heightened tension as your troops work out what to do next.

Vietnam War Civilians #3 - Empress Miniatures

These miniatures don't have to be used in gameplay though and they could simply be a way to add some life and colour to your tabletop wargaming canvas. I think that with all of the interesting decisions that the Vietnam War setting has you make, it would be a shame to not use them in a gameplay context though.

It should be noted that whilst these are a good fit for the Vietnam War, they would also work from periods ranging from World War II all the way up into the 1980s. Maybe you could use them for the French Indo China War for example.

What do you make of these new civilian packs?
