Question for you guys. I have seen that the Falange sometimes had a White Chevron on the left sleeve. What was the reason for this? Did they all have them? I have read that it was something to do with them being in combat?

Yup I read that in the Osprey I seem to remember.

Great painting on the figures.

Yes, Falange 'fighting units' had a large white chevron on one (or both?) sleeves, which was discontinued at some point and replaced by a smaller white chevron on the lower side of the cap instead. I would imagine it was around the same time they stopped wearing blue shirts and started using the khaki one with the blue collar... but I'm not entirely certain of that though and it could have been earlier.

Fantastic job on the figures btw and the flag, as always, is excellent!  :)

Cheers Arlequín. Ill leave these guys off the completed shelf then until i paint the chevrons on. Ill put it on the Khaki as well as im not that fussed about the switch over. Ive went for a mix as i thought it would look good :)

While I'm looking at grabbing some flags for my newly finished Regulares.....

What flags work best for 1936-37

Legion?
Regulares?

None of the flags i have done are Legion. At the moment it's generic stuff but ill be expanding with more detailed stuff as i have a ridiculous amount of stuff in the research folder. Ive done some Legion ones for Minarions that i still need to put on the site.

So, are the Minarion Legion one finished and will be a available in 28mm...or only 1/72? Maybe a daft question , but can the Legion flags you've down be resized or do they need to be down again?
