Gringo 40's are exploring more of the Vietnam War in 28mm with a look at a new collection which is centred around the Firefight At The US Embassy which took place in Saigon, 1968. Some and take a peek at some of the models they've been working on.

The collection of miniatures are going to be available over a few different waves with part one now available. It comes with some great looking models in the collection including this heroic MP dragging a wounded comrade back from the front lines.

Dragging Wounded - Gringo 40s

This immediately gets me thinking about dioramas and vignettes surrounding the event. I like the idea of focusing on this as the key element of the scene with explosions and all sorts going on around them. It takes some guts to drag someone out of a firefight!

Marine Security Guard - Gringo 40s

As well as that fellow, the team has also been working away on some additional figures would be a great fit for the period and this particular clash on the tabletop. They come in a range of different stances and with lots of weapons too.

MP Advancing Cautiously - Gringo 40s

There are six (seven if you count the wounded fellow) miniatures as part of this range so far and they became available early in March. So, I would love to see them expand upon this range sooner rather than later and dive into more from this particular era of warfare. I really like the character of their sculpts and I can't wait to see what else they have up their sleeves.

What do you make of these new miniatures?
