Welcome to the Strelets Forum.
Please feel free to discuss any aspect of 1/72 scale plastic figures, not simply Strelets.
If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
Strelets have provided some excellent sets and looking forward to more figures with character in the future. I would love to see some Portuguese Napoleonic Cazadores in Stovepipe shako as nobody does them in 1/72nd scale.
What would other sets can people suggest?
For new sets I suggest...
1. Tank Mark V - there is none in 1/72 plastic
2. BL 60pdr Mk1 on Mk1 or Mk2 Carriage, and Limber
3. WW1 Serbian Infantry, early war (first few weeks)
but I'll be happy if the stuff I mention in the thread directly below this one gets released, ie Strelets WW1 guns, Master Box's MkII Female, and Roden's FWD Lorry and RR armoured car.
I think a good project for Strelets would be World War I Command Sets.
The Russian Command set could have Czar Nicholas and his son Alexi in Cossack
uniform reviewing the troops. The British set could have Sir John French,
Douglas Haig, and other senior officers (maybe a Highlander in a kilt with field glasses and a walking stick). The French could have Foch, Petain, Galleini. The Germans could have Hindenburg, Ludendorff, etc. There are
I'd also like to see Strelets re-release their Normans and Anglo-Saxons.
I would like to see Strelets team expand their sledge team sets with
Mounted French Line Chasseurs-a- Cheval in winter dress and Mounted Russian
Cossacks in winter dress. I'd also be happy with any additions to their
North American War of 1812 range.
I would like to see Strelets make Napoleonic Ottomans
I also would like to see Napoleonic Ottomans and Russian Crimean War Rifles and ocourse VI-VII AD Byzantines !
I like to see the Masters of Roman Transport 4
and a new set :
Ancient Seepirates in Mare Romanum
of the announced stuff I want to see the WWII 1941 American sets and the American War of 1812 set in 2015.
Unannounced,if there is time, I agree with Bert: Pirates. 18th century pirates and Brit sailors and 16th-17th century Buccaneers and Spaniards.
WW1 Serbian Infantry 1914
WW1 Austrian Cavalry -Hussars and Dragoons 1914
WW2 Hungarian Army Battle of Budapest
Crimean War- Sardinian Regular Infantry
Crimean War -Transport sets
WW1 Austrian Honved
RTW Romanian Infantry (Artillery and Cavalry sets would also be great)
WW2 US Army 1941
WW1 Serbian infantry (1914)
WW2 artillery crews: British (long trousers, rolled-up sleeves, extra heads), French, German (one set in ankle boots, one in jack boots), Italian
SCW infantry in Spanish granadero breeches, Isabelino cap and with rolled blanket / coat around the body
WW1 Engineers/sappers/medical - wiring parties, stretcher parties, trench diggers, medical etc. The essential soldiers so often over looked. only three Vcs with bars and two of them were medics!
MUCH more American 1812 sets; US Cav, artillery, regulars(all in BLUE!), Indians, pirates, more militia:some uniformed, etc!
WWII BEF - we can't be left to rely on Zvezda Art of Tactics minisets!
That's interesting about possible PSC plans, although I find the heads on their figures somewhat oversized.
2015 should Definitely be the year of the Napoleonic Ottomans.
Line Infantry - Nizam I Cedit
Light Infantry - Albanian/Balkans
Artillery - Topijis
Cavalry - Djellis
Another vote for Ottomans and Indians for the same period (SYW/Napoleonic)
Of the things announced/planned:
1) A full War of 1812 range
2) Schneider CA Tank
New stuff I'd like to see:
1) Russian Civil War Partisans, Naval Infantry and various Nationalists
2) 11th-14th Century Samurai
3) Spanish Civil War
more ancient sets
especially Roman Enemy sets.

civilians all eras,medical and wounded,pack animals,military police with say a motorbike and appropiate jeep for army, armies at rest as in ww1 ww2 and any others not done,naval forces any eras what else does anyone think?
