After the machinegun, Footsore released a set of three standart bearer militiamen in 28mm.

What exactly is the purpose of standard bearer militiamen for WWII? Most nations troops didn't carry flags in WWII except for the occasional Japanese one. Other than that it didn't exist.

I think these are for VBCW, which is analogous to SCW where flag bearers were still seen. Although not sure why they were still seen in SCW. Someone waving flag saying look at me I am over here doesn't strike me as a sensible thing to do.

Without those helmets… can be used also for Russian Civil War?…

These are for interwar episodes, but could be used with simple conversions as holders of light machine guns or throwing grenades. Perhaps even operation Sea lion, for the Home guard
