    It's been a long time that i wanted to do a vignet of the Malvinas, or Falklands, war. I was a kid wen the war happened, and i remember al the apprehension in the people, as i live in a state bordering Argentina, the war had never come so close:nailbiting:

    I remember the images on TV, which remain very fresh in my memory.

    I wanted to build a vignet with argentines soldiers, and i had one made by a friend, Jorge, who had a model store, Commando5, that unfortunatly closed the doors a few years ago. This figure was soo diferent, an argentine soldiers taking a mate:woot:. The other is from Blackdog.

    The painting is been done only with acrilics.

    All The advices and critics will be very welcomed(y)

    Cheers from Brasil:coffee:

    Hi there Fabricio

    Very nicely done both painting and presentation .....like the casual poses , and looking a little dejected and cold with the the harsh weather seeking a little comfort in a soft drink .

    Thanks for sharing

    I think you've really caught the dejected look of the Argentine soldiers in 1982. Well done.
