Barry Hilton - This part of the series details less conventional(from a wargames manufacturing perspective) Russian troop types from the Great Northern War. First up is in my opinion the most spectacular sculpt of the 10 protos.
#4 RUSSIAN OFFICER in kaftan
#5 RUSSIAN MUSKETEER early period/or recruit
1. His usefulness for the period 1675-1700 in other theatres: Sedgemoor, Ireland, Flanders Skane wars. Of course head swaps are required and the addition of French ribbons on shoulders for Louis XIV's Army etc. But this chap will get maximum usage in the Warfare range.
2. He will complement the Apostle equipped infantry sculpted by Steve Shaw which are now selling very well. Not only will my Killiecrankie battalions be in firing lines, they can now be in a new pose.
So, what's next? Clibinarium is forging on and applying the lessons and experience gained through this 10 sculpt test to the production figures which will shortly follow.
Keep with us, we'll have product out in early 2014.
