Yet another squad of International Brigadistas

To round out my little Republican force I felt I'd need at least another squad of International Brigades before going back to paint some more Nationalists.

Something I absolutely love with the International Brigades is the relative freedom when it comes to uniform colours. Lots of different brown and green hues make for a rather ragged appearance while still looking just uniform enough to link the unit together.

Now, when I think of it I should maybe do just one more squad of International Brigades ;-)

International Brigades Bofors Anti-Tank gun

While lecturing about the lack of need for dedicated Anti-Tank support weapons in Bolt Action in my last post, I still liked this little cutie too much not to paint it up.

The Bofors 37mm gun was used in small numbers by the Republicans during the Spanish Civil War. Its performance was roughly comparable of that of the contemporary German 3.7cm PaK 36 as used by the Nationalists.
