Hi there,

Thinking about wargaming with toy soldiers; I have the sailor figures in mind, but I could use a painting reference.

Any fans of the era who may have noticed a good resource online?

Thanks kindly.

I expected a request for information about where to buy an Imperial Russian Naval uniform. The reality is much more prosaic...

That's what I thought too. Given the picture I would not like painting the stripes.

I thought of Osprey, which has countless books with illustrations of uniforms of various militaries throughout history. I found these on Amazon-

Perhaps there would be some naval uniform examples in these-

I'm usually good on the humour, but I didn't see the typo. Isn't the English language fun though.

Yes, my first thought was Osprey, but they have a huge hole where naval personnel are concerned. Pity. I otherwise like Osprey.

Yeah, they do seem to focus on soldiers.

Also, it's frustrating that with all the info spread across the internet, it can be so hard to find many things. You can find out what Justin Beiber ate for breakfast on July 10th, 2008, but trying to find something of more substance? You really have to dig and often there is far less than you'd like!
