Spanish Nationalists


Last list to be announced is again an Axies force, Nationalists from the Spanish Civil War. The motor pool is rather light, beeing supported by the Germans, so it will be a Panzer II and some interwar tanks. I am not sold on the proper army list to use these, I have some carlists, Guardia Civil and some early war germans, so I was thinking about some of the smaller nations from the Italy and the Axies book. Alternatively a restricted early war list from the germans.

The core of the army are Carlists, radical catholics, who fought on the nationalists side in the scw. The idea behind this army is a small force from northern Spain, that collected and rescued relics. Most miniatures are from Empress Miniatures, with some inquisition miniatures added from Victoria Miniatures. Why? Because nobody expects the spanish inquisition! The spaniards will be played by the "Armies of Germany" Book. The carlists will most likely be early war Waffen-SS, due to the fanatics rule. They are supported by 2 squads of Guardia Civil (mixed quality Volksgrenadiers), a squad of spanish soldiers with german equipment (Heer Infantry), as well as 2 squads of moroccan mercenaries (uncertain if Osttruppen or Volksgrenadiers). Of course a small tank pool may not be missed. So i got them a Hispano Suiza MC-36 (by Minairon Miniatures), and a Panzer II as well as a BA-6 AC by Warlord Games.
