I always liked Strelets figures, and I've never been bothered by the style of sculpting. One-on-one, Strelets figures may be less graceful than those from other manufactures like Italeri, but on a wargame table they look way more impressive and warlike. Subtle and soft details are good when you look up close, but from 50 cm you will miss all of them - instead good poses and heavy, accurate sculpting add a lot to the look of whole wargame armies, and that's what Strelets usually delivers The only complaint I have about Strelets figures is about the weapons, they are usually too thick. That's not a big problem with ancient or medieval figures, but turns out to be disappointing in regard of 19th c. or ww2 figures - you can't easily mix those figures with figures from other manufacturers. That's why I have many sets of Strelets' ancients and medievals, but few for XIX-XX c. armies.
