    I just receive from a friend in Russia a wonderful 54mm figures, from CHRONOS MINIATURES.
    Musketeer infantry regiment, Sweden 1708-21

    You remenber Sir Bernard Law Montgomery, from TARTAR MINIATURES in 120mm ?
    It's the same sculptor
    IGOR KORDYUKOV
    Do not forget this name, a new Great (Star) sculptor is born, 120mm, 54mm...everything seems possible for him...
    Make your own opinion with the attached files, photos of the figure i had received.
    For the brand, superb quality casting, a resin quite perfect, clear box, a critic, no color instructions...
    First, photos from CHRONOS :

    LOL you got to be kidding - this Star has been shining for years now, you just looked the other way. Search on PF or look at Igors blog and you will see all top quality releases and private work he has done.

    With regards to reference materials - speak to CHRONOS ( Dmitry) on PF - he as a commissioner has full references given to sculptor.

    Here is the box art for the figure:

    Hi Gaudin, i know that's IGOR KORDYUKOV has been "shinning" for years now.
    My open box and my opinion on my post is just for people have a look on the real product, not photos from brand owners.
    About sculptor, it's like singer, for a period you have somes at the top and others are forgotten.
    An example, a lot of article about M.CORRY, Carl REID, but not a lot about Alan Ball !!! Strange !
    This forum is also made to have a look on what is selling, there's not a lot of open box or review on magazine or figures forum.
    Regards.

    There are however many painting options depending what regiment you may want to portray.
    Here is an example of the uniforms for the different regiments at Narva.
    Its in Swedish but I think you will get the idea.

    I understand what you mean.
    Some Russian forum I learnt from has this feature where they post articles about sculptors - who they are, how they started, their interests , their path if you like and " hobby biography"

    I think it would be extremely interesting to do a feature on PF - say once a month or a every 3 month to select a person and tell people about Masters and invite them to answer questions that people may have.That is, if Masters are willing to be involved and de-anonymised to a degree.

    I find Igor Kordukov very interesting - did you know he is/ used to be a doctor (for example).

    Shall we do a poll to see what people think?

    Thanks Uruk-Hai (y) for the link you gave to us (http://www.tacitus.nu/karoliner/slag/Narva/svenskar.htm), jsut for people how wants to have a look on the differents colors used i put a little bit of that you can find on this link, with google, no problem for translation :
    Swedish uniforms at the Battle of Narva
    At the Battle of Narva, the Swedish regiments probably following uniforms and numerärer. Uniform Data are from Lars-Eric Hoglund while strength data comes from General Staff Office " Charles XII on the battlefield " and Margus Laidres book " Victory at Narva ". Hoglund's book mentions only really what colors the different uniforms and garments were not so much about the cut of the uniforms. I've been with a few isolated exceptions made ​​regiments on this page with the uniforms that have the same average as the classic Carolinian uniform (also called the young Carolinian uniform). But as early as in 1700, the real uniforms still have had left a lot of older features such as hats, but three edges and coats that have not folded skirt. The battle paintings depicting the Battle of Narva suggest this and their contents described in more detail further down the page. There, I also have a longer description of the Finnish tremänningsinfanteri whose uniforms on this page is highly speculative. To give an example of how an older hat model might have looked, I have depicted the guard corps with such. This corps is also depicted with older hats in a copperplate depicting Karl XII and August the Strong meal at Altranstadt 1706th Life Guards hats seem however to have been triangular at this time because they are depicted with such a battle painting depicting the transition of Düna 1,701th

    Im glad to be able to contribute. Just let me know if theres anything more.

    Also worth mentioning that Finland was part of Sweden and many regiments where mustered there. The finns had and still have very good reputation as brave soldiers.

    Cheers

    Who's Alan Ball ? o_O we're talking about Igor Kordyukov here ?

    This is a truly superb 54mm figure, of a subject that was long overdue to be released as a commercial figure, a soldier of the northern wars ! Very nice, congratulations ! (y)
