I stumbled across some Peter Pig [love his figs!] SCW that have laid in a box for 20 years, and would like to paint them.

Especially need info on uniforms for Tercio and Moroccan Nationalists, and Assault Guards.

I know of a couple of "Wargamer's Guides" to the SCW, but very much open to suggestions at this point, including reviews of your favorite sources.

Personally, I like to get the uniforms correct, "in general" and also paint in some little details like rank or other insignia, and other little details that really make the figure pop.

Appreciate your thoughts and guidance!

Here is a good start.

Minairons have some painting guides here: link

There's also the painting war book.

Best wishes,

Great reference, Toombe!

What's "The Painting War Book"?

This is the book you want.

Bueno's book that Dave Jackson linked to is a great resource. The Osprey books are also useful and are probably easier to find.

I'll second all the above references. I didn't realize The Painting War series had a volume on the SCW.
