They're nice models. I keep an eye on the YDNKTN blog. I have those QRF PZ1's as well. I liked them, Less keen on the T-26s. I went with the Peter Pig models. For BT-5s use Zvezda.

I don't have any Carabineros, mostly because I couldn't see that they were deployed in great numbers. I like the look of the light grey tho'.

Yes, I know what you mean. I like the Zvezda T26 better, it seems more substantial even though it's plastic.  Peter Pig are reliably good throughout. 

That's it for my Carabinieros, one unit only.  I couldn't miss doing the uniform.

Much as I like Martin Goddards stuff, I'd have gone Zvezda on the T26s if they'd been available at the time. Now I have many PP models of them, so I'm sticking with it.

The Zvezda BA10 is nice too, and close enough to a BA6

The camo on those Panzer 1s is superb

Thanks Scotty.

I followed more or less what this guy did with his.  He has some nice SCW stuff.

I got my Moorish Company done.  There are some more pics that will enlarge on my blog if it is of interest.

Some street fighting gal's here. I've another 8 in mono's. That pretty much finishes the rank and file for my Women's Battalion.  I now need to add a standard bearer and a couple of command.

Thanks Scotty. 

They are Peter Pig.  In fact, I've come to realize that if you're doing the SCW in 15mm Peter Pig is pretty much all that's out there as far as figures go.

That said I like them and it's a comprehensive range.  I've just finished converting the Women's Battalion command group by giving some figures long hair made of Green Stuff.  It's come out nicely enough  I'll post some pics of the whole group when they're painted.

Lovely work on your SCW collection. Peter Pig miniatures are wonderful to work with.

I'm looking forward to the Spanish Foreign Legion being remade in approx six months time according to Martin, but that will depend on the vagaries of life in covid times.
Best wishes,
Helen

Thanks Helen, I've enjoyed painting the various factions.

I hadn't realised that Martin was adding to the range.  Good news indeed.

Thanks OB, I did ask Martin some weeks ago. It is good news.
