Russian Civil War Slogans?
« on: July 01, 2007, 06:23:19 PM »
I have to paint an early 1900's transport truck for my Bolshevik Army of Taman troops.  I plan to paint it medium gray.  What would be some easy to paint slogans or pictures I could put on it?  Again simplicity is the key as my previous attempts at Cyrillic were passable at best.  I thought about doing a red flag bordered in black that I saw on an armored car in a Osprey, but what slogans to write is beyond me. Googling didn't help much.  Timeframe wise the truck is in 1918/1919.  Thanks.

For flags & slogans try this:

Thanks for the web page. That's what I was looking for.  The truck is probably  1/50 scale Matchbox Yesteryear diecast cmodel.  Here's a picture since you helped me out so well.  Harsh light really brings out the worst in my minis.  Seriously, they don't look this bad in person.  Thanks.

You could try "Vtoraia Russkaia Revoliutsiia" or "Vtoraia Sovetskaia Revoliutsiia". The first means "victory to the Russian Revolution" and the second is "Victory to the Soviet Revolution". Very appropriate and, I think, the Russian is somewhat intelligible to us Westerners without having to be translated. These came from the index of W. Bruce Lincoln's "Passage Through Armageddon" dealing with the Russian WWI experience.

 Hello.
 If you want to be close to reality, take the basis of the following photos.



Here, the most common method of placing the slogan.
 The inscription reads: "Workers of all countries, unite!". This is the most likely text.
 That's how it looks in Cyrillic: "Пролетарии всех стран, соединяйтесь!"




So the car can be pasted printed out posters of the Civil War:

Hello colleagues! I Russian Wargamer am interested in army of the ataman Makhno. At vakhno warriors there were such slogans:
С угнетенными против угнетателей всегда!
S ugnetennymi protiv ugnetateley vsegda!
With oppressed against oppressors always!


Страшна смерть буржуям -  веселе життя біднякам
strashna smert burzhuyam -  vesele zhittya bidnyakam
death is frightful to the bourgeois - the poor live merrier


Смерть буржуям и их капиталу!
Smert burzhuyam i ih kapitalu!
Death to the bourgeois and their capital!


Да здравствует Батько Махно!
Da zdravstvuet Batko Mahno!
Long live Bat'ko Makhno!

I am very interested in this period,especially Makhno.....thanks for these slogans....I think you may just have started my quest for some new figures to paint
