Infantry ID needed please
« on: April 27, 2018, 06:07:08 PM »
Found this on the internet some sort of napoleonic pikeman?  Can any one help me by telling me what their proper name is and country?

Looks like a Steampunk Polish Vs Russian idea.

If I'm not mistaken that's the artist for the board game Scythe, which is set in a world of steampunk mechs and flying ships.

I really like his style.

Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...

Thanks everyone ,yes Jakub work is very inspirational big mechs striding across fields followed by charging cavalry,
When I posted I was dishing up kids evening meal but through the power of google I came up with the conclusion that they were a kind of mash up between Russian militia and polish Landwehr ? And itís really a halberd than a pike I suppose?
Edit to add this is where I found the pic

your picture is tagged "january 1863",  related to the Polish January Uprising (1863 - 1864) against the Russian Empire
Rozalsky likes to re-imagine the Polish History in an alternative way, somehow gigantic warbots are always involved...

Here are some pictures of various Polish uprisings of the early-to-mid-19th century, showing scythe-armed men
