It's summer. And as in every summer thus far the hobby is placed on a backburner while other things get priority. So these guys were sitting on my painting table for quite some time now. To be perfectly honest it wasn't only the summer though...
... what really aggravated progress was me trying to paint these all in one batch. While I know several of you out there feel comfortable with this kind of production line painting it's definitely nothing I enjoy. And considering my glacial painting speed "production line painting" would be something of an euphemism anyway.

While having the camera out I took the opportunity and took group shots of the assembled forces thus far. Seeing the assembled forces I have to admit I'm quite chuffed with what I achieved thus far. Probably my most successful project thus far. Small wonder though with such an excellent range of miniatures to choose from and a conflict as complex as the Spanish Civil War.
