An illustration of some boyar cavalry I retouched to feature the latest colours and coat of arms I designed for my friend Gregory Romanovitch Maev. Artwork for a creative project of my design that takes place in a low fantasy setting with technology equivalent to the late medieval and renaissance periods, where formations of mounted and armoured knights are fighting alongside armies of pikemen and matchlock musketeers. In context to the lore of my creative project, House Maev is the ruling family of The Tsardom of Rus’skaya, or my creative project’s rough equivalent of Russia during the tsarist and imperial periods of Russian History. (1547-1917)

A repost of an illustration of a knight of House Maher of Aquitaine being knocked off his horse by a boyar cavalryman of House Maev of Rus’skaya. Now updated to include the latest edition of the escutcheon I designed for my family and I on the knight’s surcoat. Made to commemorate the crushing victory of House Maev over the Mahers in the last Aquitainian invasion of Rus’skaya, and as a nod by House Maher to the skill and prowess of the aristocratic cavalrymen of Rus’skaya, considered by the knights of Aquitaine to be one of their few equals in both joust and duel. This piece has been dubbed “The Hubris of the Mahers” to reflect the clash between the courtly, elegant, and refined culture of the Kingdom of Aquitaine with the hardy, resilient, and rugged culture of the Tsardom of Rus’skaya.

Gregory IV, Head of House Maev and 21st Tsar of Rus’skaya. Considered to be one of the younger monarchs in the setting of my creative project and having been raised with a largely military education in a position of command fighting and leading in his father’s armies. Gregory Romanovitch Maev is a battle-scarred veteran of over 13 major conflicts largely involving the defense of the Tsardom of Rus’skaya from it’s neighbours, most notably The Empire of Mankind and The Margravate of Wrekka.

An illustration of some dismounted boyar cavalrymen of House Maev of Rus’skaya holding steady against arrowfire from what are assumed to be cavalry archers belonging to House Akbar of Khashabar. Now updated to include the latest version of the escutcheon I designed for Gregory Romanovitch Maev. Made to commemorate House Maev’s resolute, but pyrrhic defensive victory over their fringe province of yakutsk, against a much larger force belonging to House Akbar during the 2nd Khashabar invasion of Rus’skaya.

Some dismounted boyar cavalry of House Maev of Rus’skaya holding steady against a volley of fire of what are assumed to be cavalry archers of House Akbar of Khashabar. Made to commemorate House Maev’s resolute, but pyhrric defensive victory over the Akbar during the 2nd Khashabar invasion of Yakutsk. A large, but sparsely populated province on the northwestern fringes of The Tsardom of Rus’skaya. The defense of Yakutsk, despite the considerable losses of the armies of House Maev of Rus’skaya and those of their vassals House Gronsky of Veliky Novgorod, is regarded as a military triumph taking into the consideration the overwhelming numerical advantage of the Armies of House Akbar of Khashabar.

Now updated to include an improved highlight on the boyar’s shield. Made to commemorate the crushing victory of House Maev over the Mahers in the last Aquitainian invasion of Rus’skaya, and as a nod by House Maher to the skill and prowess of the aristocratic cavalrymen of Rus’skaya, considered by the knights of Aquitaine to be one of their few equals in both joust and duel.
