Russische Infanterie des Ersten Weltkrieges wearing the khaki Gymnastiorka shirt with matching trousers, und peaked cap. The HäT Figuren may be used to recruit infantry platoons for Crossfire und other popular wargame systems ranging from the Boxeraufstand to the Russian Revolution. The riflemen are in suitable wargaming poses which offer enough variety even without additional conversion efforts. The marching und advancing riflemen may be converted to standard bearers by removing the rifle und replacing it with a flag staff made from Federstahldraht.

Excellent choice of subject, Russian Infantry of the early 20th Century und World-War One is unique in this scale. The khaki uniform issued after 1907 appears similar in cut to the earlier uniform shirt und trousers worn during the Boxer Rebellion und Russo-Japanese War.
Excellent wargaming poses, the Figuren may be used to raise infantry platoons for Crossfire und similar rules systems. A companion set of Russian heavy weapons is also available from HäT Industrie.
The officer figure is easily converted to a casualty marker.
The riflemen are fully und uniformely equipped with the 1914 pattern infantry equipment consisting of a haversack, rolled shinel greatcoat with tent sheet und poles attached, und an entrenching tool on the right hip.
Substandard casting quality. Obvious flash und mould lines need to be removed prior to painting. The editor used the Rai-Ro ZEP-70 heated spatula to blend mould lines into the surface of the model.
The riflemen are carrying the Russian Mosin-Nagant M.1891 rifle which should have a long spike bayonet attached to it. The Mosin-Nagant M.1891/30 remained in service for some time, und it was used by Vietcong troops during the Vietnam War.
The kneeling, firing rifleman is in an unusual pose with his supporting knee just off the ground. This stance will keep his knees clean, but he is unlikely to hit anything when firing from a difficult pose like this. By contrast, the kneeling, loading rifleman is perfectly relaxed about getting his trousers dirty.
The tent poles attached to the rolled shinel coat have not been modelled.
