It's been a productive week on the Republican Militia front. This week I have completed my Jefe and Commisar / Army Officer Advisior.
Unfortunately, with the angle of the photo his nonchalantly smoked cigarillo looks like he is sticking his tongue out!
I plan to use the troops as a contingent from UGT - Unión General de Trabajadores - so have painted up a Miliciana holding a UGT banner, unfortunately my G went a bit wobbly, it will do for now but I may redo this at a later date.
With all the other figures I purchased there was also another banner bearer with a much smaller banner, so I did this one as P.O.U.M. - Partido Obrero de Unificación Marxista - for the eventuality of me fielding them as something different for a change.
Ploughing on through the figures, I did another five Milicianos.
And five Miliciana including a light machine-gun team
Finally a pair of Republican army 5cm mortars for some much needed fire support.
All the figures are 28mm from the Empress Miniatures range.
Here are a few more shots from different angles.
