The first test order of 20mm Spanish civil War figures, produced by Minairons and purchased from Scale Creep, has arrived:
Simple and attractive packaging.
And a nice painting guide on the back of the box.
Here are the contents of the Infantry box (excuse the poor pics):
Two NCOs, one with a rifle and the other with a SMG, and thirteen riflemen, in a mixture of poses with no repeats throughout. One of the riflemen (third from the right of the top row) is a two-piece casting. He is carrying a container (ammo?) on his left shoulder with the rifle separate. These figures are very nice, with a minimum of flash and a variety of headgear that would be expected of a Republican force.
And, the contents of the HQ/Weapons box:
Standard bearer, two officers, two LMG, one Maxim HMG with three crew, one light mortar with three crew, and the two-piece rifleman - the only repeated pose between the two packs.
Flags are also included in the HQ/Weapons box:
Of course, just two days after placing this order, I discover that Early War Miniatures is working on a comprehensive range of figures for The Abyssinian Conflict in 20mm! Ahhh, decisions, decisions...
