|Armed with the FN FAL and Sterling SMGs|
Now you would think that painting these guys should be straight forward. But no.....I have two pictures that make them look very different. So although the photo and the colour print are different, they both say that they wore olive green. So (see next picture) I collected all my greens/olives/mosses/ khakis...and tried to match the colour.....not an easy task..
In the end , once I settled on my colours I was quite happy with the results! Now it's a matter of putting them up against the bootnecks of the Royal Marine Commandos and the Scots Guards!
The Ca Cdo Anf's first action was the initial attack on Port Stanley in April 1982 and there they clashed with NP8901 the Royal Marine garrison of the Falklands - this action was credited to the Buzo Tactico- but it was in fact the Marine Commandos.
I intend to mix them in with the regular Marines later on when I've painted some more Argies!
But at this stage, they'll get a trial run against the Royal Marines!
