Phonetically in English too. grin Plural. Dies Russian have plurals?
We have a Gang War game tonight and I have been promised the Russian Mob as my gang.
I saw pictures of the figures that Roger (7th Va Cav) painted, and immediately gave them names of Russian Grandmasters.
As I recall, they are named Svidler, Grischuk, Kramnik, Karpov, Kasparov and Tal. Tal is the crazy one.

I will of course play with thick Boris and Natasha (does anyone make 28mm Boris and Natasha figures?) accents, not use "the" or "a", and try to behave as if I'm in John Wick.

You can use Grossmeyster which is us obviously a direct lift from German

Thanks.
I don't think there will be a John Wick character in the game. I hope.
