The armoured car will be a must,

It is reasonable to have an armoured car for the early period, if that is your only concern. Less so for planes. The trains were mostly like the one in that article Cuprum showed: improvised rather than armour plate.

That article is fascinating Cuprum, thanks. What a cool mix of Red Guard, Sailors, Hungarians and Partisan Cavalry (if I understand it correctly) fighting Czechs and Whites.

For me one of the fun bits about the early period is that you can literally field whole armies.

Greetings Mark!
You remember, you asked about anchors on peak-caps red sailors on available at you a photo? I have found on them the information. Such peak-caps with anchors have been given port military men of Red fleet in 1922.

The commander of red seamen on a peak-cap could carry a red star, as in this drawing.

At white seamen imperial cockardes more often rushed.
Anarchists of a cockarde, most likely, had no.

Ok, I understand the part about the red seamen. But what about the white seamen?  :D lol lol :D
Yearly painting challenges only show me how useless I am at painting...

That is no way to talk to someone who does not speak English well enough to get that puerile joke, young man! Wash out your mouth, this instant!

Well, there we go. My goal achieved in about a month. I managed to paint 10 sailors and a 3 man Maxim team and I am really proud of these. Here are the latest additions: A flag bearer and riflemen.



The flag is made out of some metal foil tomato purée tube. :) I received very valuable tips about how to build this from Plynkes and I'd like to thank him once more for the help.

Well, let's get a group shot together then, before I start trying out painting methods on my Bolshevik infantry. Speed is my goal again but I'm afraid I won't be able to use the washes. I still have some sailors left (1 commander, 3 riflemen and the Naval Command by Brigade games), but I need a bit of a change for a while. For our campaign we need command groups consisting out of 3 to 4 miniatures, so I might make my overall command group for my army a naval one. We'll see. Here are the riflemen:


and here everyone together... Smile!



They were already tested on the battlefield last Friday suffering 5 loses but dishing out an impressive 18! Needless to say that the Bolsheviks won the fight that day.

These are one of the best miniatures of seamen, that I could see! Remarkable, beautiful and historical work! You the present master, accept my congratulations!

Very, very nice!

The flag looks especially good; I like how it's fastened to the pole - that looks especially cloth-like.

Thank you so much for all the kind comments! I am very glad you like them.

Cuprum, wow! Thank you so much for these compliments!! Without your help though the unit would have been less interesting and less accurate so it is you who's is the master of RCW! :)

Fantastic, Dimitri. This is my favourite thread on the LAF at the moment. Glad I was able to be of help in a small way.
Thálatta! Thálatta!
