Confederate Casualty plus lots of Bayonetting and Clubbing
I agree, clubbing and bayoneting is sorely missed, casualties too.
Thank you for the upgrade, Traveller!
Gents, have mercy!
It's like running after horizon - we've barely announced new line of figures, and you are suggesting even more! One can't catch up with that in a lifetime.
Seems the good news is your new ACW and Napoleonic Lines are ramping up to be huge successes!
I personally felt you were more than kind enough to me in the threads below with Teaser Pictures and encouraging news, so I was going to sit quietly for a while. But when I heard the Band Wagon coming down the street beating and singing out the joyful sound of all those special Pose Requests, I just had to jump on board too - Sorry!
I really feel that your sculptor is so talented, and with new Masters so outstanding, your Strelets Team will do the ultimate job of immortalizing those souls for these wars regardless of our well intended interference - But still, Thank you for listening!
With that, it's Friday here, so I wish the Strelets Team and Forum Fans a wonderful weekend. Happy Dreams for me.
Faithfully yours - GC
when it comes to these sets we all get excited to see them and more.i will contain myself and not ask for more,at least for now lol.
Gents - while I agree that a couple of poses of these would be okay, these types of poses are generally for the diorama builder and I think sales for Strelets would be limited if the poses are no use to the wargamer. Maybe a couple of these poses in the appropriate sets. I'd like to see a wounded or casualty figure in each set for instance. ie either shot or already on the ground. These have definite use in any wargame setup as well. Figures in melee less useful.
Strelets - I think you'll find the only reason ACW has not been so popular in this scale is that there is little to offer the wargamer. Most poses in previous sets do not contain large amounts of marching or advancing troops. I am a huge fan of ACW but most of my units in this scale are metal because the plastics are virtually non-existent. There are a lot of closet ACW fans out there or ones that do ACW in a different scale because of these issue. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by how popular these new sets will be, and thank you for having the courage to do so.
