I managed to complete another 10 of Franco's Moors, figures from Northstar. This will complete the first platoon and the extra 4 figures will be the start of the second platoon. The platoon is made up with figures from both Empress and Northstar.
The whole platoon together. Even managed to add the flag.
I also had 3 leftover figures from the Asaltos and spare International brigade officer. I decided to use them as the start of a section of Carabinieros. Not sure if I got the Green/Grey uniform correct, but it's close enough for me.
Now I just need to sort through the new/expected arrivals. There are another 16 Moors for the second platoon. 20 National army, an AT gun, 2 Panzer 1s and a FT-17. Should keep me busy this month.
I've already started to plan next month's purchases. I'll need 8 more Moors yo complete the platoon, 4 more National army for their platoon. 4 more Carabinieros. I then need to decide whether to add a 3rd platoon to the International brigade, sort out some Militia or make a start on the Falange.
I picked up this 3d print from a new company for me, paint and glue miniatures. https://www.paintandglue.co.uk/russia . A fantastic little kit and all for £7.50. That's roughly 3 for the price of the Warlord kit. The model is made of plastic and came in 2 pieces, the body and turret. There is an option to have the model made out of resin. There was very little clean up to be done on the model and their is plenty of detail.
I have deliberately left off any markings so that I can also use the model for my WW2 Soviets. Overall very happy with this model, so much so I've just ordered 2 Panzer Is and a Renault FT-17 from the range.
