Guys

Any suitable rules available for predominantly infantry actions for Vietnam/Indo China games?

Thanks

There's FNG from Two Hour Wargames. Think there's a new version just come out?

Any good ancients set. But although decent Han figures are available, nobody makes Vietnamese yet.

Charlie Don't Surf from Too Fat Lardies for larger scale engagements, Chain of Command from TFL also has Vietnam mods available on the net for smaller (platoon level) actions.  Also Force on Force and the Vietnam supplement work well for low level engagements.

Yes, FNG 3 is releasing next month.  I got to give the rules a proof read this weekend.

CWC will work fine for Vietnam
The thing to do is use the Guerrilla Tac.Doc from BKCIV for the VC
What scale are you proposing to play?

Cheers

I've used CWC for French Indo-China - it's worked very nicely.

Would be nice with a CWC II with split AT/AP stats, mind Wink

I've also played a bit of squad level stuff with Osprey's "Black Ops", which so long as you select appropriate forces and/or hand wave the more advanced gear (essentially everyone in BOps has body armour, modern assault rifles etc) seemed to play very nicely. Its focus on sneaking and blundering about was very handy, and very tense in the jungle or BUA/village clearance.

It's a very long while since I played them, but Peter Pigs "Men of Company B" was great fun as well.
