Back in May I posted a picture of my first unit of Soldatski for my 17th century Muscovite army (other unit in this post). Well, after 6 months !! the second is finally finished.
The unit consists of 12 pikemen and 20 musketeers. (It should be 12:18 for the 3:2 ratio, but 32 figures is easier to arrange). In the interests of economy (always popular with Management), I painted an extra 4 musketeers so that I had the option of fielding a unit of Streltsy for scenarios set earlier in the 17th century. A unit of 24 means that they can be deployed in 3 or 4 ranks, or even 2 if behind defences.
Work has also been progressing with the ECW figures from Dave. Fortunately these do not need painting, just re-basing, so these infantry have come on quickly.
