These bow armed skirmishers is the first infantry unit for my Novgorod force for the Baltic Crusades project. I imagine they are wood cutters or farmers, at home in the rough terrain, who have been drafted in service for the mighty Republic of Novgorod. As such they were painted in muted tones to contrast them against the very colourful druzhina.
Some more pictures:
The miniatures are all from Gripping Beast's Medieval Russians range and slightly stocky. Despite, or perhaps because of, this they're very easy to paint up. Of course, it helps that you only need 6 of them for a full unit ...
Finally, a warm welcome to the new followers ghalgor and Millsy. I hope you'll enjoy the blog and find something interesting here.
Have a great weekend everyone!
