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.
Following our messages, last thursday I sent a message on ITALERI FB Account.
Yesterday I received the following answer :
"Ciao Patrice. Very soon, in the next days, you can find the pictures on our web page and on FB. Ciao."
Let us cross fingers for it won't take too long...
Well done and thank you Pat, I am checking several times a day, already on both.
I just hope they make the old ESCI Brits in red! I will be happy & so will others as I will be buying a few & selling off the extra buildings & accessories!
The Esci are not bad but I think the new Hat ones are better. I don't like the ESCI Zulus shields... I like the a call to arms ones too despite they are lightly smaller... Their Zulus are terrific and very lively.
Now about the Roke's drift set thanks to your information I found this link on the net about the Warlord Games Roke's drift set. It gives a good overview on what we could get, with lucky chance. May be you already know it, but in case you don't:
I really look forward for the buildings but I do hope too we get all the rest that could provide a very good diorama. The mealie bags and crates walls and the stone walls and the cart. All these things that could provide good diorama elements.
Let's hope !
Yes fingers crossed, Hat have their wagons on the way, so at some point we get them, sooner the better, and unmarried Zulu`s. The mealie sack walls and redoubt I will scratch build. I started painting more Zulu war figures today after a long lay of, the old enthusiasm has come flooding back.
I paint with Enamel Colour (old school...) 98 matt for Zulus, first primed black. Any advise ?
