After much anticipation and a few delays, it's finally time to release our brand new Falkland's range!  This is the first range which has been produced entirely due to our Requests system, so it just goes to show that all your votes do produce results!

This first batch contains most of the infantry types, mainly in beret, and we'll be following this lot up with the helmeted chaps pretty soon.  The masters arrived from Techno last week, so are currently in the moulding queue.  As well as the infantry, we've recently previewed some of the upcoming vehicles as well, so check those out here: http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,5849.0.html.  We're hoping to have these ready to go in the October releases.

Of course the Brits will need some opposition, so the Argentinians will be following on very soon, possibly in one big release with the helmet Brits, but we'll wait and see on that.

Finally, if you're in need of any scenery and buildings for the conflict, then it's definitely worth heading over to the Timecase website: http://www.timecastmodels.co.uk/range_1/range_1.html

So, here's the releases:

Outstanding - worth the wait, but will be waiting a little longer until the full range is out which might give me chance to make in roads on other pendraken lead mountains I'm still to start!!!!!

Excellent! Can i just say a big well done to Pendraken for releasing this range. The Falklands war isnt mighty popular and this should spark some great looking wargame tables and dioramas. Also a big thanks to all those who voted in the requests system for this range Smiley . Im off to scour the garden for some more little stones to paint and some slate. Thanks again Pendraken  Applause

Even if you don't want to game the Falkland War these figures would come handy as a kind of Ersatz UNIT force for taking on Alien types in leafy English villages. (Good enemy types can be found in the Dungeon Monsters range) Let's face it if you are taking on something un-pleasant a MILAN team is going to come in mighty handy.

Here's a link to the TFL site to purchase the special which includes, "We'll Have to Bloody Walk".

You need to also own IABSM as it is based on that.

In addition to the UNIT alternative, these could be used for any 1960s-1984 Cold War British army, for example if fighting in Norway, or the north German plain in winter. Hell, if the October 73 war had gone global you might find these on the Golan heights alongside the IDF fighting Syrians and Soviets. It snows up there you know, so winter gear would be appropriate.

Of course, you'll need some Wombats, FV432, Chieftains and Centurions to go with, then some Soviets to fight, but am sure the voting process will determine that. Or not  Cheesy

The possibilities are many. Once the Argies are out, well, even more so....
