As the old year drew to a close I managed to complete the third unit of Soldatski pikemen. When I purchased these figures at Vapnertak in Feb 2017 I hoped to get them finished by the end of the year and for once a met a deadline!
The bags of figures from Old Glory contain 30 castings, so I had to augment them with some 'extras'. In this unit the extra figures came from a TAG blister of 'Soldatski Command' and they seem to fit in quite well with the Old Glory figures. Of course I still need to re-base the accompanying streltsy, so the unit will not appear in action for a bit yet. The flag is based on an illustration for a colonel's colour from Dan Schorr's Great Northern Wars website.
Last October Steve mentioned he was looking for some Muscovite gunners. Now, I could justify getting some more (I only had 4) so we decided to get a bag of Old Glory gunners between us.
We each got 9 figures in 5 variants as shown above.
Another tempting delivery
