I have for some time harboured an interest to start a project around the Falklands War (Guerra de las Malvinas). As a 19 year old I followed the coverage of this conflict on these windswept, bare sub antarctic islands with great interest.
The images of the sinking of the General Belgrano and the Exocet missile strikes on HMS Sheffield and MV Atlantic Conveyor left a deep impression - as have names like Mt Longdon, Two Sisters and Mount Tumbledown. Of course we can name many more moments when the world watched on in awe of the horror of modern warfare.
Dougie's basing is something special too: http://dougieswargamingblog.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/b-company-2para-falklands-1982-in-10mm.html
So, I've got myself a copy of Fivecore Company Command and a bag of Pendraken minis arrived today. Here begins my first 10mm project. There are many challenges ahead not least painting the camouflage uniforms of the British. Stay tuned for more updates.
