STP Miniatures 28mm 1799 Russians
I received these figures recently from my mate Gennady in St Petersburg; yet more of his slowly growing range of figures for Suvarov’s army that fought in Italy and Switzerland in 1798/99. Of course they’ll do for Russians in the Netherlands or around Zurich for the rest of the War of the 2nd Coalition as well, which makes them a terrible temptation. I’ve already got a few battalions and some sotnias of Cossacks on active service with my collection already as it happens. The first thing to say is that these figures are cast in some sort of polyurethane resin so are incredibly light but very well detailed. How robust they are remains to be seen but I am confident that they will survive the rigours of wargaming for many years. Of course I need to get them painted first!
