This painting guide covers the three major paramilitary units – Civil Guard, Carabineers, Assault Guards – of the Spanish Civil War. They fought for both sides.
In general the Nationalists of the Spanish Civil War continued wearing the Pre-War Peninsular Army uniform. This section covers Nationalist Infantry, Cavalry, Artillery, Mountain Artillery, Tank Crews, Medical and other support services, Foreign Legion, Falangist, and Carlist Requetés. Most of these wore greenish-tinged khaki, but the Legion wore a distinctive grey-green.
All I’m really interested in is a set of instructions so somebody can paint some wargaming figures for the Spanish Civil War. That means I don’t have to describe the cloths, just the colours. I have included descriptions of unusual articles of clothing – like the Moroccan chilaba just so you can recognise them, hence paint them the correct colour.
