Russian Opolchenija from Filippo

Just before leaving for a 2 days business trip to London, another great work from Filippo: a squad of Russian Opolchenjia. Above, the commander and priest/standard bearer (a modified figure from Mirliton Miniatures).
The first half-squad...
And the second half-squad (with colpacks).
The complete Opolchenija squad: Steve Barber and Front Rank miniatures.
Thanks Filippo!
