I noticed Hannants have the following Strelets sets for sale
STR 039 Crimean War Russian Grenadiers
STR 051 Crimean War Russian General Staff and Hospital etc set
STR 093 Crimean War Thin Red Line set
as re releases. Are Strelets re releasing some of the early sets?
A good idea if they are. Anybody starting out collecting the Strelets Crimean War period figures might find crucial sets hard or impossible to get so not bother and buy something else.
I always hoped there would be an Allied set similar to set 051 it seemed an obvious pairing.
I think re-releases would be a good idea for Strelets. I'd like to
see them re-release their Norman and Anglo-Saxon sets.
David, I had hoped for that set too, I also hoped a British Naval brigade set would be done, my great great Grandfather was captured by the Russians in the Crimea, he was a boy sailor on HMS Albion, he was later returned in a prisoner exchange, I have his medal for the campaign. I spotted them on hannants future releases a week or so ago.
Indeed, we re-released few sets in the past.
Opponents to set 051 aren't planned as a single set, as we've released several other sets, devoted to commanders of each opposing army, excl. Sardinians.
Good for the hobby and hopefully good for your business.
I was thinking more of the hospital figures in set 051. You are right set 902 Heavy Brigade does indeed have most of the British General staff and officers.
