Having reviewed my Foundry Italian Mafia Mobsters last time, I just had to review my Russian Mafia Mobsters this time. These five figures are from the Foundry 28mm scale Street Violence set SV024 Sergei's Korporation. As with my Italian Mob, these are partly named by the Foundry Figures crew and partly by myself. All background information relates to my ATZ-FFO campaign.
Sergei Kasparov is the head of the Russian Mafia in Mayhem City. He and his gang have muscled their way into the city's crime scene by sheer ruthlessness and a vicious determination to be top dog. Sergei's Korporation arrived in Mayhem City in the year 2000 and has grown in power and influence since then. Sergei is armed with a 9mm Heckler and Koch MP5A3 Sub-Machine Gun and he knows how to use it. He has taken part in many of his gang's violent takeover operations. He is every bit as ruthless and as nasty as his rival "Viper Joe" Marciano. Suffice to say, the two are sworn enemies.
In the centre of the group is Sergei's chief enforcer "Big Piotr" Rasputin, who stands 6' 7" tall. He towers over most of the other gang members. He carries a 5.56mm M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) in his hands. He has a flight bag slung over his shoulder and that could carry all kinds of nastiness. "Big Piotr" does not say much, but to be honest, he does not need to. He is not a man to be messed with.
Last in line is Irina Suporov and she is Sergei's finance manager and advisor. She is a hard-nosed bitch, who works out regularly and is a highly talented martial artist. She carries a laptop computer in a briefcase in her right hand and a small 9mm Makarov Pistol in her left hand. She is left handed. Her main talent lies in her ability to successfully manipulate stocks and shares, which explains why she is handsomely paid by Sergei.
Again, I like this set, but I don't think they are quite as characterful as the Italian Mafiosa. The males are okay but could really be any trio of armed goons. The females are far better sculpted and they show a lot more character. Still, they make a fine set of adversaries for many a group, criminal or otherwise. As usual, this set of five figures retails for £10.00 from Foundry's webstore.
