 Both sides now have 81mm Mortars and the Argentinians have a 50cal and crew- the Britis Milan 1
 So far the range consists of 37 different figures.

  2. The Brits will also do the business for BAOR of the same period. Vehicles are on the way- currently 2 different landrovers are out with more to fiollow and Scorpion, Scimitar and Sabre have all gone off the the Mouldmakers- these will appear in the CDMV range. Other vehicles for the British army of the 80s and 90s are on the drawing board

  5. Depending on how accurate you want your stuff to be, be very wary of the following items, British mortars are inaccurate and do not depict the correct mortar for the Falklands let alone the army of the 70's onwards. The Argentine .50cal is completely wrong, it is depicted on a tripod with a ammo box attached (He used the .50 cal off his vehicle range as a short cut), a) the tripod is back to front, b) the ammo box can not fit to the side of the gun when on its tripod, it needs to be on the m53 AA mount to do that. So avoid those two packs at all costs, also just a minor point the Milan guy is about to loose his legs when he fires it. Point these errors out to the guy who not only sells them but sculpts them and he says Why should I care, A mortar is a mortar and a machine gun is a machine gun. I could use a word to describe him here, but he wont be getting my money again no mater what, rather prefer MJ figures.
