Without any doubt. The Russians had a lot of experience in colonizing Siberia, and all Russian fortifications were uniform in appearance.
Here I have already given sketches of typical Russian forts (ostrog).

You can also now see a perfectly preserved Russian fortification in the USA - Fort Ross. Although the fence is not typical there, usually it was not boards, but whole logs - it was both stronger and more reliable.

Thank you, cuprum! Yes, sawing boards must also have taken more time and effort than using logs!

Thanks Lance!

The canoe painting continues. Not quite happy with these yet but enjoying the painting.

The first Tlingit canoe is done!  Itís a bit of a beast, one piece metal casting plus crew.  All the original crew were wearing the classic rain hat so I did some head swaps with some of the other Varang Miniatures. 

Iíve just finished off several dozen figures for this project so more snaps to come very soon.

And now here are some Russians. All Galloping Major or Kings Mountain Minis with some conversion work, mostly head swaps.  The KMM heads are great for this, although Frostgrave wizards and a Victrix Viking also feature!
