Sculpted by the incomparable Erramir Orlan of Peculiar Companions, these Russian Heavy Infantry are intended for armies from the 15th and 16th Centuries. This set of 3D models comes in two poses with three variations of each, as well as spear, sword and axe options. All models come as both pre-supported and unsupported STL files.

Russian heavy infantry during the 15th and 16th centuries formed the backbone of Russia's military might. These well-trained and heavily armored soldiers played a pivotal role in the defense and expansion of the Russian state during this period.

Tactics and Strategies: Russian heavy infantry employed a combination of disciplined formations and martial skills. They were known for their proficiency with polearms, such as halberds and pikes, which were used to repel cavalry charges. Their formations provided a solid defense against enemy advances and were instrumental in sieges.

Notable Battles:

Battle of Kulikovo (1380): Though just before the 15th century, this battle marked a turning point in Russian history and military tactics. Russian heavy infantry fought alongside other troops, including archers and cavalry, in this historic victory against the Mongols, showing their resilience in battle.

Siege of Smolensk (1514): Russian heavy infantry played a significant role in the defense of Smolensk against the forces of Sigismund I of Poland. Their steadfastness and discipline during the siege were essential to the city's survival.
Through History:

Ivan the Terrible's Reign: Ivan IV, also known as Ivan the Terrible, reigned during the 16th century and relied on Russian heavy infantry to maintain and expand his territories. His campaigns in the Livonian War (1558-1583) saw the continued use of these infantrymen.

Technological Advancements: The 15th and 16th centuries saw advancements in armor and weaponry, influencing the appearance and effectiveness of Russian heavy infantry. The period marked the transition from medieval armor to more modern plate armor designs.
