Roundway Napoleonic Russians – mini review

A fellow gamer recently asked online whether anyone has information on Roundway 15 mm Russian Napoleonics. This is a lesser known brand manufactured by Navwar in the UK. As it happens, I have quite a few of their figures. I quickly took a few snaps of the figures I had lying around, so that you can get an idea of the range.

They are relatively simple castings, close to real 15 mm in scale, single pose, and are a good choice if you want to churn out a large force quickly. They are also very very affordable. If on the other hand you are looking for the intricate detail of Anthony Barton’s work, then these are not your cup of tea.

These figures were painted a long time ago for our Russo-Swedish war of 1808-09 project, and I was aiming for speed rather than beauty. I used them alongside Minifigs early Russians, and they mix fairly well.
