Sculpted by the incomparable Erramir Orlan of Peculiar Companions, these Russian Mounted Cossacks are intended for armies from the 15th and 16th Centuries. This is a set of three 3D models in 3 variations. All models come as both pre-supported and unsupported STL files.

The Russian Mounted Cossacks of the 15th and 16th centuries were a unique and formidable force, known for their fierce independence and military prowess. They played a crucial role in the defense and expansion of the Russian state during this period.

Tactics and Strategies: Russian Mounted Cossacks were masters of irregular warfare, using a combination of mounted archery, hit-and-run tactics, and guerilla warfare. They were skilled with both firearms and traditional weapons, allowing them to engage in various forms of combat. Their mobility and adaptability were key to their success on the battlefield.

Notable Battles:

Battle of Molodi (1572): The Russian Mounted Cossacks demonstrated their expertise in mounted archery and hit-and-run tactics during this battle against the Crimean Tatars. Their ability to strike quickly and withdraw disrupted the enemy's lines and contributed to the Russian victory.

Siege of Kazan (1552): Russian Mounted Cossacks played a crucial role in Ivan the Terrible's campaign to capture Kazan. Their mobility and ability to harass the enemy were essential in the success of the siege.

Historical Events:

Cossack Uprising of 1648-1654: Although slightly later in history, this event is significant for understanding the enduring influence of the Cossacks. The Cossack Uprising marked a major rebellion against Polish rule and marked the Cossacks' struggle for independence and recognition.

Exploration and Expansion: Russian Mounted Cossacks were often at the forefront of Russia's expansion into new territories during the 15th and 16th centuries. They played a vital role in securing and defending newly acquired lands, contributing to the growth of the Russian state.
