Standard troops.

Well I am still pumping out the Spanish Civil War troops. Two days ago I offered an "exotic" unit so today to balance it I have some more common troops. These are Pendraken 10mm figures again and can be used as either Republican or Nationalist forces by simply swapping the flag over. I have painted them in the Army uniform of the time but painted the blanket rolls in different colours in order to give a less regimented effect.

Gain 3 figures on a round MDF 25mm base to keep them all consistent with mu other troops. The 25mm round base was selected at the beginning simply for ease of handling after-all life is too short to worry about individual figures at a small scale.

Lastly I have also included a single machine gun. Most of the support weapons are only 2 figures to a base but I had far too many officers (in my opinion) in the army pack I bought at Salute this year so the odd one on a machine gun base is not a big thing.

I shall try to post again on Sunday, and with luck something a little different just to break the monotony. Also coming up soon will be some scenery for the SCW, but that will not be ready on Sunday. So until then take care have fun and  sling some paint on some figures!

All the best Clint

    1. Cheers Mate. I think I have enough troops now but I still have more to paint so I will continue.

  2. This project really does seem to be steaming along nicely! What's still to do (apart from scenery, which you already mentioned)?

  3. Thank you Hugh. I have some more troops to do of course...... not too many but enough. Other than that and the terrain I'm about done. I could get some aircraft, but they optional. Maybe some more trucks. But as you point out I am reaching critical mass now.

  4. Great looking troops; they look good multi-based too.

  5. You must be reaching the stage now where you're itching for a game using these and all the other great figures you've painted.
    It's always good to have multi-use troops.

    1. Yes I think I may have reached Critical mass. So once terrain is done I should be ready to go. You know it might be time for a new project or two! Thank you Jo.

  8. Thats a good idea about the flags and that reminds my I really need to get my SCW flags sorted, designed and done, ready for printing. Before I say more, they are looking rather nice.

  9. Thank You Pete. The fact that troops uniforms were all used by the same sides it just makes sense to make the flags interchangeable thus the troops can be on either side. Good luck with getting your flags done. I look forward to seeing them.
