Looks nice. Russian guard = 480 rubles = Euro 6,80 = GBP 6.00 = US$ 8.45.
The others = 320 rubles = Euro 4,50 = GBP 4.00 = US$ 5,60.
Not too fond of the standards, I would use my own.

Certainly some nice looking miniatures coming out of Russia these days!

Made from urethane resin. How is that different from hard plastic. Will they bend or shed paint like old Airfix figures?

The photos are wonderful…

I will be honest and say not one of these on a ridge south of Brussels, when it really mattered….

Although I do accept there were earlier skirmishes before 1815

So I speak with profound ignorance.

But ignorance is no impediment to expertise on this forum

This Kiwer thing? The "Shako".

It looks great…but did it ever happen?

Urethane resin – very similar to hard plastic – but perhaps a little more brittle. They certainly will not bend or shed paint – and the detail achieved with it is outstanding. My only fear on some of the figures I have bought – not these I should add – is that some parts like a very thing gun trail – may prove fragile. But as I said – the detail that some people are getting with this resin is incredible – there is a TYW cavalryman out there with the face guard on his pot cast separately so you can even make it moveable if you want to. Those are from Avanpost – these figures from Gennady Stupin as also superb – and Gennady is a great guy to deal with!
