As the Argentine forces were, with some variation, largely kitted out in what appears to be US kit of the 60's and 70's, very similar to several NATO armies of the 70's and 80's. This means that the generic NATO infantry produced by Elhiem should fit the bill as one option and, if not, then they will be useful as troops for Denmark, Norway and West Germany.
I've painted them with Russian uniform as the base colour, heavily dry brushed green grey and then lightly dusted green grey with a little white. Helmets are olive drab, boots and weapons are NATO black dry brushed basalt grey.
These are NATO NCOs with Uzi SMGs. Front view.
A mix of riflemen with G3 and FAL - I ordered mixed packs so took pot luck as to what was included as I wanted to try these figures out. Front view.
LAW armed troopers, with a single Carl Gustav.
GPMG gunners for fire support. Front view.
In the run up to Christmas, my other half asked me what I wanted as a pressie, so I came up with a list of gear from R H Models (Liberation range). The Yolasite lists several packs of Argentines, but unfortunately most are labelled as not yet available. However, there are three packs of FN riflemen listed, each of 10 figures, including 3 suitable for NCOs (pointing poses). These are really nice crisp castings, but the range is crying out for some heavy weapon support.
First up, figures wearing parkas, with canvas covered helmets and goggles. Front view.
And the second pack, very similar, but no goggles. Front view.
The last pack in soft winter caps with ear flaps, some folded up and some down covering the ears. Front view.
Finally, from the RH Models multipurpose range is a medic and figure carrying a wounded comrade, both wearing baseball caps but looking close enough to the soft winter caps figures to blend in well. Front view.
These figures should work well for Argentine troops for the Falklands, but I think they will also work well for Norwegian and Danish troops in a hypothetical Cold War scenario, which is handy as I plan to try out some of the scenarios in the "Red Star, White Lights" scenario book which was published recently. They came as something of a relief to paint, after working on DPM for the last couple of months, because of the simplicity of the monochrome scheme. So, the basis there for a couple of platoons, which I might consider bringing up to company strength at some point. Support weapons are a little thin on the ground, unless RH Models complete their list. I've seen suggestions that 106mm recoilless rifles from the Platoon 20 US Vietnam range would be suitable, as well as .50 cals and may be even mortar support and WW2 bazooka teams. For NATO, I'll have to add some of the Elhiem generic NATO Milan teams.
Thanks for looking.
