I finally completed another 4 Carabinieros for my Republicans. I have used the Empress miniatures Asaltos figures. I used the Vallejo light mud as base colour for the green/grey uniform worn by the Carabinieros. Very happy with how the turned out. With these I have a full section. However I have noticed that the Republican III mixed brigade were composed of Carabinieros. Now I quite fancy increasing these up to atleast platoon strength.
Now despite this diversion for more Republicans I did manage to complete another section of Nationalist army. These are a mix of Templar and Empress miniatures.
Just one more section of these and Moors and I will be up to 3 completed Nationalist platoons.

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.
