They look great, lovely shield work

Who is the manufacturer?

Many thanks!
This is Old Glory (oldglory15s).
I used Russian spearmen for hordes, Russian archers as archers.
As spearmen, I took the Norman. Because they have the right shields. And everything fits.
Unfortunately, many manufacturers make rectangular shields for Russian infantry. This error occurs because of the images on the icons. The icons, however, depict Roman scutums because of tradition.

Actually, I thought the Russian shield was more the Byzantine 'almond' rather than a Norman 'teardrop,' but very nice work!!!

It was rather amusing a while back looking through pictures on pinterest and seeing so many pictures posted as being Norman or other Westerners and then finding the originals on Polish or other Eastern European sites.

I agree, the Russian shield is rather "almonds". But the Norman "teardrop" was met quite often. Indeed, the shields of spearmen are narrow. But this is the closest thing me managed to find.

Not sure who has a good spearman with an almond – one has to make do with what is available.

Nice cavalry.
