With nothing happening on the gaming front due to the continued outbreak of Phobon Plague there was plenty of time to put together a Troops on Parade feature.

This time it's the turn of the 28mm Spanish Civil War collection to get the spotlight.

Started mostly because I really like the figures (own up who hasn't done that !) My knowledge of the period was pretty limited, but along with the number of figures, my interest has grown and grown and the more I learn about SCW the more it fascinates me.

We have our own set of rules which I think (I would I wrote them !) give a real period flavour, it's definitely a highlight of the gaming year putting on a SCW game. A real shame it has such low popularity amongst gamers, it has a lot to offer.

Pop down the blog for a ton of photos of the units along with the now standard Utubes video.

At the end of the piece I start to think about the future of the blog. Do I carry it on ? In all likelihood yes, but probably in a changed format, hits are massively down on many posts and that traffic seems to be migrating to other Social Media. I think it's a general trend, just typing out loud.

Sterling work as always Ken! You put the rest of us to shame.

SCW is a period that I feel like I could get into. Like you, I don't much about it, but it has some interesting gaming points, plus there are some cool models.

Ken, I much prefer a blog rather than something like Facebook to showcase wargaming. Please keep up your excellent work!!

Looks great! One of my favouite periods. If I could figure out how to post a picture on here I'd Show my anarchists.

Yeah, I check out a lot of blogs on a regular basis, including yours, sir, but I hate Facebook.

That is one impressive parade!

One period I never collected although I have played a few SCW games at conventions, including a couple run by Pat Condray, who sold SCW and Marlburlian ranges at one point.

And I like the mixture of figures for your International Brigades. Allegedly, the Russians supplied a lot of equipment captured from the British Expeditionary Force in Archangelsk to the Spanish government at the start of the war, including Lee Enfield rifles, so figures intended for VBCW are probably realistic for the early Madrid front and Jarama.

I was listening to this earlier today, an interview with Peter Kemp, an Englishman who fought for the Carlists in Spain link
