for Red Actions!
These are the cards I use
for Red Actions!.
They represent my views only, and are not official.
Many of the cards do not exist in the original game and others have
been altered slightly. If you have any questions about why I have used
the values I have, or you think I have made a mistake, contact me.
They are in .bmp format, which makes them quite large files, but I have
zipped them to make them more manageable (now ranging from 200 to 800
files will open in a new window.
– all fronts of the Russian Civil War.
– including Czech Legion.
– eastern fronts only.
– the Baltic
Freikorps and their Estonian and Latvian opponents.
– the UGA and UNR
– standard items, like
armoured cars, plus alternative tachanka cards.
– Makhno from the
standard set, plus some lower grade Greens.
Notes regarding the
changes to unit
I tend to fiddle around with the values on the cards, as new situations
arise, so the cards are prone to change at any time. However, nothing
has been added or changed since early 2006.
The points I associate with each unit and the general scheme of their
values is laid out as an appendix in my army lists. However, the full
reasoning can also be found here:
I have expanded the Officers range, as I need more than were offered in
the original set. Again they are zip files of bmp format –
ranging from 200 to 350 KB in size. These
open in a new window.
Notes regarding the
The specific Red, White and Polish officer sets includes the original
sets plus others which follow the original set of values.
The Ukrainian set is entirely new. Their poor values represents the
difficulty both the UGA and UNR had in finding trained and motivated
The Baltic set includes the full original Freikorps set, marked with a
small grey dot, plus a few extras of a generally lower value.
I have marked the Nationalist officer markers with an initial for their
race: E = Estonian, L = Latvian, B = Balt (i.e. local German), J =
Jewish, S = Scandinavian (both local and foreign volunteer) and R =
Russian. The first E and L series are the values of the original
nationalist set, except the -2 Estonian is a -1. The aim of the S, B, J
and R officers is to allow a gamer to tilt the average up or down
depending on your view of how good the armies were at a particular time.
The "extra" set all have a morale rating of "0" and are
specifically for reducing the range of values in the original sets.
They are marked by a small dot to enable identification (greenish
rather than the grey for the first Freikorps set).
The officer names I have added are almost all those of actual officers.
