I'd like to show some new busts I've painted by Mookies Miniatures, a member of SAS, Gulf War (Bravo Two Zero) and a Para from the Falklands Conflict. Both are in the smaller size of 1/12 and from Richard's 'Lottie's Little Imps' range.
I do like both of these but ‘Bravo Two Zero’? A fairy tale written by a man who blamed others, and named others, while insisting on his own anonymity for dramatic book selling effect. The true account is out there and well documented. His version is a figment of his imagination.
Sorry but I cannot stand someone who would blame a man who died on that patrol and who the Army later cleared when the true events were told.
The busts look very good though and superbly painted again Peter
Peter these have turned out very nice indeed, It's a very fine tribute to these fighting men.
Yes most of Steven Mitchell's account's were proved to be false but not all the men of Bravo Two Zero can be held accountable for this. There were also other SAS patrols in Iraq at the time, dressed in the same kit deserving credit for their actions. The Para's attack on Goose Green was truly gallant.
Fantastic work mate, love it. Enjoy your camo free period coming up
