Thanks both. 

Carlos,

I know some were handed over to the ANC but I've not seen a photo of a Mark VI with the Mercenaries.  I might do some UN troops eventually though.  The blue hats and white vehicles is quite a striking look.  I think Traveller has done some Swedes.  We need to see pictures.

I've finished off some of the mercenary 'Ommergeng' over the bank holiday weekend.

Really cool project, I've always liked the mercenary element although I'm not sure I could pull it off and it look this good.

Thanks Russ.  I've got an M8 Geyhound and some more infantry to finish at some point.
