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.

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.

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!

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.

Hope that helps.

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.
