Today some pictures of the fictional South American Forces. These are all Peter Pig Spanish Civil War figures painted as Republicans. In my fictional world they represent regulars of the El Andostadorian army. The republic is in the middle of a military reorganization and as a result uniformity is not always standard.

I like the Peter Pig figures although they are older casts and think that I finally got the SCW republican colors right. I am not to sure about the Flames of War bases. This is more of a modeling project then anything else at this point and I tend to be a bit crazy about bases I think look right. I thought Flames of War basing would be practical and at first I was happy with the look however am now thinking of moving the figures to smaller bases. At some point I will decide. I also plan to paint some non historical based units for this project at some point so look out for further updates. Any feedback on these fictional based armies would be greatly welcomed as well.

A great looking group there, Lekw, I especially like the French 75mm.

I was just going to say how nice those FOW bases look, actually - they seem to give just enough space to add in some terrain for a vignette effect, without being too unwieldy - I think if you went smaller, then the bases would seem a bit top-heavy, with just the figures visible.

Just my 2 cents!

Thanks!!!! This is the kind of advise I need as I am so indecisive about how to base these guys. I may end up staying with the FOW bases afterall.

The new Khurasan Chako War minis will be perfect for this!
