>>I think there is a pretty reasonable film about this era - although it might be a bit earlier - all to do with a Polish invasion of Russia.
It might called '1644' or something like that. I need to have a trawl of my DVD collection.

I think the film is "1612".   Pretty good actually with some excellent battle scenes.

Yes - I thought it was a good film ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1612_(film)

yep, as Phil pointed out, it's "1612". It's a guilty pleasure of mine. Despite it being borderline fantasy with some weird and silly choices in terms of costume and battle tactics, it's such a nice watch. There are so few films about the time period every drop is important.

Good to see these in 10mm, and I'm interested in which codes were used for them.

You might want to have a look at 'By Fire and Sword'. These are rules for this exact period for this exact location. It covers all major and minor armies. They have their own extensive range of 15mm figures as well.

The (free and online) army creator will give you an idea of the armies that can be built: http://ac.oim.wargamer.pl/index.php

The basic rulebook is available as a pdf download: http://www.fireandsword.wargamer.pl/index.php?option=com_rokdownloads&view=folder&Itemid=86

And there are also downloads for the various armies with unit stats, worth it for the potted history and examples of painted units alone.

Russian reiters: LOA31 (with EC31 mixed in), dragoons: LOA42. Infrantry and streltsy: GNR7. For the pomest'ye cavalry, I mixed in EC31 with ones from Irregular miniatures: TER 16, as well as TC 4, 5, 6, but I wouldn't use those again. For Cossacks I used P10 and P12, and for Tatars OT7. I've some more lying around, some mounted cossacks from Irregular TER range, as inaccurate as their hats are. For Russian lancers I got a pack of standard bearers of EC10 (get those via custom order). To fill out the Cossacks, I got some Polish dragoons and and pancerni too, but those are easy enough to find.

I have seen the "By Fire and Sword", but the rules require a fair bit of markers and I also prefer my minis to be smaller to accommodate larger battles. Unfortunately, as you can see, I do not take the easy way out, for some strange reason. I might try the rules out eventually.
