Medieval russians

Quick post today... I'm short on photos about ww2 stuff, so I've decided to post something about one of my medieval armies. All the figures are from Zvezda (both cavalry and infantry) and Orion (infantry). Great figures here, Zvezda ones have great poses and are neatly moulded, Orion figures have great details but suffer from badly moulded weapons and some poses are a bit flat.
This army is meant for the XIII century, but could be used also for XII or XIV century.

Breve post... a corto di materiale sulla 2gm, ecco alcune foto del mio esercito russo per il XIII secolo.
Figure da Zvezda (cavalleria e fanteria) e Orion (fanteria).


Above the whole army. Figures are based on cardboard - this kind of basing started as a temporary solution but you know, in Italy we say "nothing lasts more than a temporary solution".

Sopra l'intero esercito. Le basette sono temporanee, in attesa di una soluzione migliore.


Command bases. Great figures here, they show all of the mastership of Zvezda at their height.

Basette di comando. Le figure sono tra le migliori tra quelle prodotte dalla Zvezda.


Knights. The army would benefit from some light cavalry too, in the mean time I can add some mongol horse archers as mercenaries or allies from the nomadic tribes.

Cavalieri / cavalleria pesante. Al momento l'esercito difetta di cavalleria leggera, ma si può rimediare aggregando arcieri a cavallo mongoli (intesi come alleati delle tribù nomadi o mercenari)


Heavy infantry in the foreground, and light infantry in the background. The heavies can also be used as dismounted knights.

Davanti la fanteria pesante, dietro quella leggera. I primi possono anche essere considerati cavalieri appiedati.


Shield walls. This sort of infantry seemingly was the backbone of many russian armies.

Unità di fanteria in muro di scudi. Questo tipo di fanteria era molto importante in diversi eserciti russi dell'epoca.


Missile troops: crossbowmen and archers.

Per finire, unità con armi da lancio: balestrieri ed arcieri.
