Title: Siberia Miniatures
Post by: Red Sveta on March 12, 2019, 10:22:10 PM
Just wanted to say what a great service I have had from Siberia Miniatures. I ordered the rebels set from the range. It was delivered today From Siberia to UK posted on the 5th March. Great figures too I just have to get time to paint them now.

 I compare the service from Siberia to two orders I have made in the UK, one on the 28th Jan and one on 21st Feb, I have not got either of those yet.

I can attest to the stellar professionslism of Michael at Siberia. He communicated wonderfully and dispatched quicky to the US. Now, as Tom Petty once said, the waiting is the hardest part.

He has very nice stuff, and I have been tempted before.
The high praise has persuaded me to order some,
that is when my wallet has recovered from (what I have
already pre-ordered from) Salute.

They is very nice Roger they have come up a treat
They look a lot more realistic than the Cossack's (from another maker) I painted last year.....hmmmm can I justify redoing the unit.....you betcha!

Post by: Rogerc on March 18, 2019, 04:02:22 PM
Ha, ha. Well I had initially planed to be a very few to add soem variaty to my Copplestone who they do complement reasonably well by the way (foot more so than cavalry) but I ended up getting enough for 3 extra units of Cossacks, one is finished and been in use for a while another recently finished will appear on the blog soon, the other I have yet to start. They are really nice figures.

Looking at your blog Roger you are an even bigger Cossack fan than me!
I could not see any photos of the Siberia Miniatures ones though are the under a different label?

Try these, listed under RCW label rather than Cossacks. Each one has a number of manufacturers inclding Studio Siberia as they are mixed in many of my units.

Just wanted to add my ha'penny worth in praise of Siberia Miniatures. Great models - the detail isn't generally as sharp as Copplestone but the figures have a real elan about them, (rather more exciting poses than Copplestone). The horses are superb. The cavalry and Cossack plastoons are the best, I'd say.
And they come packed in genuine Russian tea packets for added local colour!

Yes thanks Roger it does
I am looking to make a unit of 10 Cossacks for 1941
So I was looking at how easy it would be to vary arms, heads etc - your look splendid
Although Leonid has several different poses they are different uniforms and there are only 1 or 2 suitable for my project

Not my area of expertise I am afraid but best of luck. You might consider just buying the ones that match, let us know how you progress.

Oh, that's the pack I absolutely need to get. And maybe Defence of the Manor. But those Bolsheviks for sure.
