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.
A couple of years ago I was going to start a wargame campaign in French North Africa but then found Hat and Italeri had ceased production on their Legion and Arab figures -prices on Ebay were astronomical!
So I thought Boer War. Great -plenty of British but the only Boers -horse riders and foot were produced by Strelets. I've spent a year and have now contacted all UK sellers (Model Hobbies, Harfields etc) and some in Europe -no luck. They all tell me these sets are "no longer in production".
Is this correct as they are still listed on Products?
If you wanted mounted Boers from Strelets, Hannants have 20 boxes listed today.
I can offer two boxes of boers foot soldiers. Please contact me!
If Terry doesn't want them both I will have one of them off you.
Strelets Boer on horse ordered but the foot figures -useful for various "civil disputes" in Europe, too- seem unavailable and I can't seem to get an email to Strelets to find out if they are discountinued.
Sigh, looks like I'll need to look for another campaign period!
Just a quick update. I've phoned around a few shops and even emailed a couple in Europe. They all say they never got any responses from Strelets in the past and their suppliers (there have been a LOT of enquiries about the Boer foot soldiers) say "Set Unobtainable" So unless Strelets say they are still in production and will be supplied again....no go.
In case there are others who wanted to campaign the Boer War (in plastic figures) and cannot get the Strelets Boers which, I've been told by a retailer today that his distributor has said "they are definitely out of production" (I thiunk we have to remember the current conflict there). If you want rough and ready, brimmed hats foot boers there are two sets you can try -check PSR- they are A Call To Arms Confederate Infantry 1861 Set 54 and Imex (some of the same figures)Confederate Infantry Set 506.
At an inch tall they ought to do!
