    "Borodinskije Soldati" is a kind of Russian "Historex".

    Main field of action are 54mm figurines made of hard plastic - so quite comparable to Historex, although there are not many conversion options.

    Usually sets are offered that show famous scenes.

    The newest set shows the famous Russian general Mikhail Dmitrievich Skobelev storming the Ottoman fortress Plevna in August 1877 ...:

    The scene is also slightly different from 1875 avaiable, which shows General Skobelev at the Battle of the Great Chingan in Turkestan ...:

    ------------------------------------------

    But most of all, the following scene has been done to me, showing the praying Don Cossacks and their regimental priest (with umlaut icon, that was really so!) just before an attack during the First World War or the Russian civil war ...:

    Otherwise, just browse ...:

    Excellent figures, some great subjects, very different from those that we normally see in the West. A great introduction to Russian history.
