Robin Hood and his Merry Decapitators

The Merry Men are Zvezda's peasants in revolt. The medieval period saw a number of peasant uprisings. Whilst few were successful they served to remind the Lords that their feudal serfs could not be taken for granted.

Amazons Prime

An interesting set from Dark Alliance covering the fictitious Hellenistic warrior women, the Amazons. Legend has it that they lived in the far-flung (to the Greeks) Scythian wilds.

Some of these figures could be adapted to be some of the nationalist archetypes of the 19th Century, such as Britannia, Marianne or Germania.

There are also mounted Amazons available.
