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.

This all looks superb and is high on my must have list.

One comment which may may not seem important to you but I know any Parachute Reg members viewing the range will grind their teeth at.

Para's "TAB", Marines yomp. The term yomp was popularised during the Falklands conflict by reporters talking to Marines not to Paras.

Major Fielder mentioned that over on the BKC forum as well, so I've changed that now.

They are really superb figures, but who is willing to play the Argentines unless they play the cat and mouse (or elephant and tiger) routine?

However, I think we need to take out sometime to point out why they are great figures.

They are proportional to what I think a human person looks like- no short or long limbs, etc.
  Each figure is perfectly in scale to others in the line.
[/list]   The small parts, weapons, etc., are well detailed and perfectly proportionate to the person carrying   them.
          The figures will paint well. Not many nooks and crannies that hard to reach.
          The details are not buried by the posing.
          The details appear historically accurate.
           The bases are not thick at the bottom and the height of each figure is more or less the same.
           The clothing/uniforms are commensurate to the figure.

Thanks for your kind words Urbinoprince. Embarrassed

I really must pay tribute to Barrie at Timecast, who was my 'mentor' for these figures as far as getting them as 'historically accurate' as possible at this scale.
So thanks from me Barrie !!

Cheers - Phil
