No not the ROYAL Marines Commando....I put the Bootnecks in a past blog. This time it's the Compania de Commando Anfibios (Ca Cdo Anf)- the Argentine Marine Commandos. - and I intend to make them double up as Marines that fought at places like Mt Tumbledown as well.
My son and I have obviously gotten into Force on Force from Osprey and Ambush Alley games in a big way. We recently ordered more troops from Eureka Miniatures to add to our Taliban and US Marines. Nick (junior) ordered the German Bundeswehr and I couldn't resist the Foreign Legionnaires with their FAMAS rifles. I ordered them with berets (painted green for the Legion- red is for the other French paras) rather than helmets because I prefer the figures with the berets rather than the helmets.
Or Romanorum adepto suum anus vulnero
A report from one of the Brothers: Paulus on the Po!
It was a cold winter’s dawn but what the Carthaginians
thought would be a token Roman force turned out to be a “table bending” tonnage
of lethal metal.Carthage called up all
the Allies and all the Barbarians they could lay their hands on.
The Roman Van was certainly impressive.Cohorts in depth always mean business and
they ranged across the central battle field of the Po River Valley as far as
the eye could see.Hannibal and
Hasdrubal both vied for command but in the end controlled the wings as
Lachlanabal took command while they quibbled.
