Cold War Spanish

Post by Richard B. »

This all started when Richard Crawley decided to run his Crisis Point/Andrevia game at the Gauntlet show in Broughton nr Wrexham under the SOTCW banner yrs ago. Andrevia is a fictional Balkans type nation beset by all sorts of external and internal strife.

Now i don`t game post 1960 as a rule, but Richard`s setting in 1990ish post Cold War, I decided to paint up a small NATO contingent and chose the Spanish as something very different from the norm. As you will see this has grown somewhat :o

I`ve never had everything in one place until now, so I have photographed all vehicles and troops together.

This force represents a Mechanized cavalry group which can be used as a QRF.
Complete force (note some vehicles still have UN markings)

Command/support
M113 with Milan (Hobbyden) with two deployed teams
M106 mortar carrier (Esci kit) deployed MG3 team (Elheim)
M577 command vehicle (S&S) 6 figure command element
1st mech platoon
2 x 10 fig sections in M113
Figures are a mix of Liberation, Platoon20 and Elheim

2nd mech platoon
2 x 10 fig sections in M113
Figures are a mix of Liberation, Platoon20 and Elheim

Tank platoon (M60A3)
At the front we have an ancient Esci kit, at the back a resin model by S&S and the one facing up is a Revell kit

Recce
2 x 5 figure squads in VAMTAC (Spanish Hummer copies) figures mostly ElheimI put the UN Jeep here for completeness

Image
Armoured cars (AML60)
Left with commander = ACE, right = S&S
Image
BMR600 platoon
This allows the force to move into the 90s
2 x BMR600 (S&S)
2 x 7 men squads (all figures Elheim)

:o Heresy! Heresy I say.

Since this is not Rif War, Mexican Revolution, SCW, or WWII, this can't be a Richard post, just can't be.

Nice stuff :D

Great little army, Richard.
Could be called into Ceuta to resist ISIS takeover?
Or asked to support Sultan of Morocco against Jihad by latter day Polisario Front; a war thats been ongoing some years now. (But not one I know little about.)
