Up Country

Up Country, is the name of TAG’s range of 28mm miniatures, suitable for the war in Vietnam in the late 1960’s and 1970’s.

It covers native Vietnamese fighters; the Regular, North Vietnamese Army and the irregular, so called Vietcong, as well a full range of Americans and Commonwealth troops to accompany them.

US in Vietnam

The US involvement in Vietnam runs back to the early 60’s but it is with the start of the major offensives on the mid-60’s and early 70’s that the TAG range concentrates. We have US Army miniatures in large numbers, as well as a good selection of Special Forces.

Sculpted by Richard Ansell, with additions by  Sue Wells.

Commonwealth in Vietnam

At its peak there were over 7000 ANZAC troops, in Vietnam serving along side US troops for 1965 onward, and TAG minis represent these with the idiosyncratic weaponry and kit.

Vietnamese Regulars

These are the minis that you”ll be needing to represent the great bulk of the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) at the height of the war in late 60’s and early 70’s. All these minis have the distinctive uniform of the NVA with selection of helmets, as well as a large choice of weapons

Vietnamese Irregulars

Designed to represent the irregular fighting formations of the Vietnamese people, what at the time were termed Vietcong (VC). All of these miniatures are non-uniformed, and are bareheaded or have hats. Again we have a good selection of weapon types to chose from, to mirror the ad-hoc nature of the troops.

As with the Modern range, where ever possible we have added the weapons & equipment from this range to our web-shop, and there are a couple of good resin vehicles to help you recreate this most iconic of conflicts.
