I'm trying to get the French done before my Fall teaching begins and the summer gaming party has to slow down.

It's like Christmas in July!
So for about $130. USD I was able to get a nice Spanish Civil War collection up and running doing both sides assuming one base=one company (100 men +-). Based four figures to a 40x40mm base will give me armies that will work for the "Portable Wargame" rules as well as such as AK47 Variant for SCW and Crossfire. So I am really getting back into this period after selling off all my 20mm SCW collection back in the late 90s (...in 20mm the best way to go is the beautiful "Historical Products" line of SCW sculpted by the late David Alsop now sold by the very knowledgeable Pat Condray)
I just need a few more figures on the Republican side...and some Morrocans...and...well...you all know how it is...just a few more....
