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.

Again it's a quality sculpt by my all-time favourite sculptor Mr. Paul Hicks and available through the fine chaps at Empress Miniatures.

Again I kept it fairly generic in order to field it as both Republican and Nationalist in case matey Axebreaker one day comes round to finish his own SCW International Brigades.
