Currently painting- 54mm flat plastic Medieval Russians

l am very pleased with these 54mm flat figures of Medieval Russians. They are in hard plastic and hold acrylic paint well with only a detergent watery bath.
They were fun to paint and are charming. I really like the arrows embedded in the shields or at the feet of figures. There are quite a variety to be found on eBay. Are there any books or magazine articles on these splendid fellows and their plastic kin?

  2. Great work - do they have a foe to battle against?

    1. Tell us more. I am interested in the Teutonic Knights. Are we going to see Company Fire Lite for Ancients?

    2. I picked them up 4 or 5 years ago - alas I don't see them on ebay anymore. I will have to post some pictures of them. As I know little more than nothing of the period, writing rules for it would be an act of hubris to be sure!
