These ranges cover the conflicts which took place between WWI and WWII, including the Civil Wars in Spain and Russia, along with some French Foreign Legion troops and a selection of vehicles.
After centuries of Czarist rule over Russia, the pressures of WWI fostered a revolution that saw the Romanov monarchy toppled and the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR) established in 1917. From 1917 to 1922, all over the vast territories of the former Russian Empire, armies of the main factions of Whites (Conservative forces), Anarchists, Polish and Ukrainians, along with interventionist foreign powers, fought against the Bolsheviks in an attempt to establish their own view of a future Russia. This series of conflicts was described by Churchill as the Pigmy Wars, despite being more international than WWI and its outcome would shape the 20th Century.
The SCW was a conflict between the Republican government, supported by the left wing political parties; and the conservative forces, mainly the Armed Forces, as a result of years of tensions and extremist policies by different governments in Spain. For three years both sides developed their own military and political agendas, fighting some of the most famous battles of the 20th Century, like Madrid, Guadalajara or the Battle of the Ebro River. Infantry waving flags, colorful militias, cavalry against tanks and defensive positions, this conflict is a mix of both World Wars with the lethal participation of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Stalinist Russia.
These items are all British types from the inter-war period, of particular use to anyone doing some 'British Civil War' type games.
