"There are those of us out there who simply cannot put down stuff to do with the Spanish Civil War. I am one of those people. For me the SCW represents the last European conflict with really flamboyant uniforms. A conflict that was not quite WW1 (if only because the Spanish proved themselves woefully resistant to digging proper trenches!) and yet not quite WW2 either. A conflict waged with colonial warfare savagery by the nationalists and by jingoist communist propaganda by the republicans. A war where mild steel was bolted together over cars and called tanks (well, actually they were called Sooty's [Tiznao's] but you get what I mean) and where the division between socialist ideology and fascist ideology is almost like holding up a mirror to the politics of today…"

I wonder why (given his statement that there are so few suppliers out there) he went for 15mm? Plenty in 20!

Yes its a shame. Id love to see his sketches made into 20mm, they're pretty great and he's right theres not much out there for dynamiteros. Thanks for sharing!

Hey guys,

These are mine from my blog. Thanks Armand for sharing.

I used to game in 20mm a lot and still have quite big WW2 collections in this scale BUT I found that firstly it took up a LOT of what space I had and secondly I never seemed to get enough finished whilst with 15mm I found I could knock out large armies of well painted minis in relatively acceptable timeframes.

Im a dedicated 15mm gamer now so I spend a lot of my time converting. My 15mm Slovak army is entirely converted with barely a single unconverted or home sculpted and cast element in the entire army.I expect my SCW stuff will be similar…

Awesome, keep us posted on those! Id love to see the finished product, the drawings are great. As i said above, if they were 20mm id have to add some to my columns!
