This a wargaming place were you can see a growing collection of miniatures and terrain of many historical periods in 20mm (but also a few 10mm,15mm and 28mm) started when I was 10 yo. At the moment it has some 40.000 miniatures from simple foot soldiers figures to much bigger Destroyers. Occasionally there are some war movie critics and some travel to military sites. My family considers it the best wargaming site in the World even if it is the only one they know.

Rapid Fire! 20mm Gulf War - Saladin's Division (part 4): the Mechanized Infantry Regiment of the 12th Tank Brigade
This post completes the 12Th Tank Brigade of Saladin's Division. Here you have its Mechanized infantry battalion (Regiment, in Iraqi terms) made out of 6 men in each of the 3 companies, plus command, AT, AA and mortar detachments.
The command of the battalion only has these two SHQ figures, and a Cararama Land Rover. In the future I'll add maybe two more figures and a 12,7mm HMG.
Each company has a Skytrex BMP-1 and six SHQ figures, one of them with RPG-7. Third from the left an Iraqi sniper from the command group looks for a position for his deadly job.
The A/T team has a Milan ATGW taken from the Revell Modern German Infantry, the firer (ESCI US WWII) and a famous figure from Matchbox, with moustache, of course.
The 82mm Mortar has figures (L-R) fom Revell US WWII Paratroppers, Revell US WWII infantry and Matchbox modern British for Falklands campaign.
The AA weapon is a twin 23mm mounted on a 3/4-ton vehicle. The twin 23mm was scratch built in Evergreen and the truck is a supermarket toy resembling closely the Gaz 66 or a civilian truck requested for military service.
