I would like to see two Russian blades:

A Kindjal, and a Shasqua.

A Shasqua is a slightly curved blade that Cossacks used, and the Kindjal is also a Cossack weapon.

The Turks used Kindjal a well, but it is so similar to Gladius that you don't need a new weapon. Several makers do a good suitable one, Even TLC themselves.

A good Cossack sabre however would be an asset, and usable with Arab or Turk Mocs as well.

What we still lack is a proper "light lance" which would also work with many different Mocs, including Russians! {:8

The one looks kinda like a raider blade, but the other would make a cool, generic, ornamented, cavalry saber.
