About the Project

This project started about 2013 with this: https://www.beastsofwar.com/historical-battles/goood-morning-nam-week/ In this year our gaming club was big in FoW: WWII. And we heard that Battlefront would start a vietnam range. We looked in our eyes and said: We will do this all together. So around 6 gamers picked an army. For me this was the PAVN. We had about two NLF, one ARVN, one Aussis and we had one US Army. I was slowly working through my first packs. About a year of really nice games and campaigns, we thought about going to the Hamburger Tactica (biggest historical tabletop convention in germany) with Flames of War: Vietnam. And we choosed the Battle of Ia Drang (anyone remember the movie "We were Heros") https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Ia_Drang Bothi did a really nice table (which i will show later) and the scenario and i did painting PAVN like a beast ;)(i like deadlines). Finished all miniatures just in time. Pictures for this will follow too. Since then, i bought some NLF, a mobile cavalary, airmobile and a brown water navy. So much unpainted minis. And why this now? Some of you may heard that in february the new book Nam came out (mostly based on Team Yankee and full of fault, sorry i have to say). We still have to test this. But we are not unafraid to change this we don't like. And then there was this article series from Oriskany: https://www.beastsofwar.com/flames-of-war/50th-anniversary-tet-offensive-part-one/ So i hope you will enjoy this project in the upcoming months.
