With the nice weather I managed to get out and complete the last twelve Carabinieros I needed to complete the platoon. All the figures are from Empress minuatures.
First up is a command section. The flag is one I produced using images from the Internet. Not sure if the Carabinieros used a flag, but I wanted one.
Next up is a section of eight riflemen. Once again I used a spare helmeted figure for some variation.
And here is the full platoon all together, just need a new storage box as I can't get all the figures in.

Another quick update as I managed to complete a second section for my Carabinieros. Once again I'm using the Asaltos figures from Empress miniatures. I have used one militia figure and a spare army figure. Like the idea of a couple of the men acquiring helmets.
I also put togethet two pieces of hasty barricades. Perfect for stopping tanks. I simply used some left over sandbags, boxes and barrels. They look effective enough to me.
I've now got the next twelve Carabinieros undercoated and ready for painting. That'll complete a fourth Republican platoon. So purely for balance I ordered small batch of Carlists from Empress. I'm also waiting on 3 more tanks.
