Aggiornamento del 10 novembre:
Sul sito Zvezda è stato pubblicato anche il retro della scatola, in maniera tale che si possa già avere un'idea dei soggetti rappresentati. La scatola contiene 8 figure a cavallo, 15 a piedi, oltre a 3 suonatori di tamburo (un tamburo enorme) ed un carro con una spingarda ed un servente. Molto pittoresco!
Zvezda has just announced the release of this new box. We still don't know what exactly it will contain, but from the image on the box, we can suppose it will contain both foot and mounted figures. As we have yet discussed in former topics in this same blog,talking abot Orion sets, Cossack can be very useful, because they fight both for Swedish and Russian in GNW. Tactically, thay probably have not a great importance, but they are so colorful to be of a certain interst on a wargame table.
Updating, November 10
On the Zvezda site, the back image of the box has been published, to give afirst idea of the contents.
The box contains 8 mounted, 15 foot, 3 drummers (with a huge drum), and a wooden chart with a fauconet and a man firing it.
From the site of Zvezda:
Army of Zaporozhian Sich was the most outstanding one among cossacks hosts. Independent society of Sich during all its time of existence was the source of distemper, but at the same time it was a basis for popular movements both in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and in the Russian Empire. Nevertheless both Poland and Russia had been appreciated very much military efficiency of Zaporozhians and had been used them as a front line against Turkey!"
