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!/Able Archer rules - Ayatollah's Army in 20mm - Counterattack!
Warned by the presence of the Iraqi tanks in the region the Iranian army mount a powerfull counterattack led by a Scorpion reconnaissance company.
A second Bell AH-1J was added, this time an Italeri model. The symbols were, as usual, handpainted.
Also another Phantom II entered the collection. This version is the F4E and the model is Revell's.
Finally my Iranians have something decent to cope with two Iraqi divisions! These repainted Chieftain Mk5 Fabbri diecasts received different sets of stowage and sandbags.
The Scorpions on both sides are Airfix (1/76th scale) and the one in the middle is Altaya (1/72nd scale). The different sizes can be attenuated by using the same base size and antennae lenght.
For the crew of some of the AFV's I used some Esci WW2 Italian torsos with GreenStuff arms.
Next: wether more 80's Iranians or Samurai as I've just watched Sekigahara (2017). A hell of a movie!
