I've been looking for some suitable 20mm figures to represent Airborne Forces during the Falklands campaign for some time. Regular readers of this blog will know that I've painted Liberation, Britannia, Elhiem, and a few other manufacturers but these have always generally represented BAOR types with the old 44 pattern helmet or a very heavily scrimmed helmet that is accurate for the North German plain but doesn't have the Airborne Ally look that I was after. There's a photo here that illustrates what I'm describing.

Had a request for a 28mm Afghan Compound, I'd checked out the mdf ones available but wasn't happy with the wall thicknesses and general size, so decided to build from scratch. Dougie. As a basis for size, roof/floor height I used the Renedra Mud Brick House.

In between my commission work I've been pondering 20mm Winter of '79 stuff, here's where we are, buildings wise I think I'll use Metcalfe, Scalescenes and Skaledale, these are either card or pre painted so don't need much tarting up. The photo below shows the Metcalfe corner shop in redbrick, the only thing you really need to do is paint the external folds a suitable colour or you can see the white card on the external folds. easy to do and just takes 10-15 mins per building.
