Observation Post is a feature of Wargames Illustrated and is obviously taken with the latest releases. They clearly liked them as below and just want more (tell me about it). They have pointed out some details I missed, but I think we are all now convinced by the experts that cigarettes in the helmet cover band were an exception!

They are excellent figures. Each one is a "personality figure"

Totally agree.

I recall as a schoolkid following Khe Sanh and then Tet/Hue in 68. Like everyone else I thought the VC got into the Embassy in Saigon. My memory of all that is TOTALLY the Marines holding M16s over their heads and blazing away over a wall…I thought that was Saigon and the Embassy then, but obviously not now and recently found the BBC film sequence from Hue.

I am a recent visitor from Napoleonics, purely involved by the first few Gringos40 figures…plus the fact that Ged did not know how to post images on here (which I did)……and they are so much easier than Bavarian Grenadiers!

Fortunately the range is expanding as, I feel anyway, they cannot be mixed with the obvious alternatives, as there is a huge discrepancy in size. Shame I know and wargamers may not care.

But they do somehow look like big strapping Marines in 28mm.
