There are a few sets of figures in metal for the Falklands conflict in 20mm but at the moment nothing available in for us fans of plastic figures in this scale.
There’s a solution if you like converting to get a fair representation of Argentinian forces in plastic – basically you need figures in cold-weather gear, parkas, gloves, etc, issued with US equipment, helmets, & FN-FAL rifles.
There are a lot of figures in parkas from the Matchbox British 1980s paratroopers set that will do the job quite nicely.
The helmets are old US style helmets with covers.
For me, I found that the heads from the Revell WWII US Marines set have helmets with cloth covers and they look ideal for this job.
I also used some figures with headswaps from the Revell WWII US Paratroopers and the Imex US Korean war sets.
Finally, as always, the group photo 🙂
When I made these I should have really spent a bit of time trying to make goggles for the helmets, but it’s too late now. Maybe when I get around to making a second batch I might try my luck.
