15mm Cossack Rabble by Wargamer

Some time ago I bought models for By Fire and Sword cossack army made by Wargamer company from Poland. It took me some time to start assembling them, but it finally happened and some time later I finally got around to write this review. For 16.50 pounds from North Star miniatures (one of the official distributors of the game in UK) you get nice looking carboard box. Inside there are 36 foot models plus 12 metal bases, enough for a decent sized unit. As with other Wargamer sets for that game, you also get colourful banners, ready to be attached to your figures.
Ok, let’s talk about models themselves. There are few unique poses, so of course there are some repetitions, but nothing too bad. Models are quite characterful and nicely sculpted. There was fair bit of flash to clean off, which i didn’t notice on other sets, so perhaps it is a problem of earlier batches, but cleaning so many models in 15mm was slightly annoying.
My main issue was with the weapons. There are on separate sprue and offer good variety of primitive looking improvised killing tools. However they are simply too thick and placing them in model’s hands makes it look bit weird. That is really my main problem with this boxed set. Other cossack sets didn’t seem to suffer from same issue, but I was slightly dissapointed with this particular box, especially after rulebook set such a high standards for the entire range.

All in all still worth buying, but don’t get too exicted.
