For the CTV, they might share some organisational form with the troops in Abyssinia. No support lists or national characteristics, though.

The organisations should actually be the same, or at least very similar, to the regular units sent to Abyssinia.

I did not want to rush things, I just figured out I couldn't do it on my own. Maybe I should get the appropriate supplements for T&T or DH and tweek them a bit.

No! Rush away! The biggest incentive for anyone working on a project, is knowing that there are people interested and wanting it.

:)

One of the biggest problems with existing SCW organisations across various rule sets and indeed some books on the subject, is that they bear little relation to the 'real' organisations... or even the official TO&Es, and are often 'best guesses' based on faulty research. I'm not pointing the finger at T&T or DH here btw, but just making a general point.

Unfortunately checking and cross-checking, passing them round people to get their opinions, feedback and other input, takes time. In any of the CoC WW2 'Army Lists' turned out to date, the two or three pages they consist of represent a lot of work by whoever has done them... the SCW ones even more so, due to the relative scarcity of material, even in Spanish.

I can assure you though, that the CTV are fairly high on the 'to-do' list. There may even be people already out there working on them for all I know.  ;)

Does anyone have suggestions for where I can find good images, or can you share images, of Moroccan Mehalla suitable for SCW and/or early WWII?

Thank in advance.

I would also like to ask:

several of the linked sources mention khaki berets, not only with the requetes but also militias/army - is this a mistake and therefore pure choice that wargamers prefer the red berets for the Carlists?

and even more special: in a few of international brigade packs from Empress a kind oh kepi is worn - is this meant to represent the old Ros cap? or what else?
and finally - is there a link where one can see the 28mm miniatures from force of arms that someone has hopefully bought and will re-release?

The 'Kepi' is actually a balaclava-type woollen hood with a peak - the Pasamontaña. it looks like a Kepi because the sides fold up over the peak.



Berets came in all colours, black and dark blue being perhaps the most common, but the 'uniform' one of the Carlists was red, as was the case after the Requetés and Falange were amalgamated to form the FETy de las JONS. Red is the colour most commonly used in propaganda art, but obviously it is difficult to determine from photos how common they were in reality.

Is there a website or a thread in the forum that has the rules for fielding a force from the SCW using Bolt Action rules and scale?

I had some lists up for the early part of 1936, but I'm currently re-writing them... I say currently, but they are way down a long list of other stuff I'm working on.

One of the guys on the Warlord Forum did some - http://www.warlordgames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=15451 (or with a slightly better discussion here - http://forum.wwpd.net/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=12909).
Somebody else did some here - http://troubleatthemill.blogspot.com.es/2014/05/bolt-action-spanish-civil-war-lists.html

I don't vouch for accuracy nor anything else, but if you want a 'pick up and play' set of SCW lists for Bolt Action, they will do the trick I'm sure.

I have seen a poster of a Republican militia woman in a dark blue gorillo with white piping and tassel, anyone have any idea if this was an actual item or just artistic license?

The Assault Guards's gorillo was dark blue with white piping and tassle, so possibly yes it is genuine.
