Does anyone know of a figure manufacturer producing 28mm Greek / Russian Orthodox Priests - with robes and headgear - my Russian troops need blessing before engaging the enemy, or was that last rites after getting gubbed :!:

Bob, Colin has a number of figures like that. When he gets back from Norfolk I'll give him a call and try to find out for you.

Cheers

Bob, the only figure Colin has managed to find is this one from the Brigade Games WW1 range which I think you can get through North Star. It just dawned on me that Foundry has a priest in their Cossack range which might be worth looking at although you then end up getting charged their rediculous £7 postage charge.
Perhaps some kind soul on this group might have a spare figure they are not after?

Hi Dave,
Thanks for your efforts.
The Foundry example is....very "Rasputinish" but no bad, and I might be able to lay my hands on one.
Brigade - now that's a funny hat :!: :!: Having said that, there were lotsa other goodies on their website, an I'm still drooling :shock: :shock:
The very warmest regards,
and greetings and felicitations to you and yours this christmas and Hogmanay :D :D

I didn't bother mentioning those Peter as they dont look as if they are blessing troops but attacking with them and as you will have guessed Colin has those as well. In fact they took part in all our LOGW Back of Beyond weekends.

Cheers

You mean you can be blessed with a sword or axe in Russia !

They are dynamically posed but could be converted into more appropriate figures although IMHO the Foundry SYW Cossack figure is the best available.

I recently received a russian monk from The Assault Group as a freebee.

I suggest you contact Pete at info@theassaultgroup.com to obtain details.
