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.
If we are talking about cavalry as well as infantry, then I would like to see standing cavalry with their swords resting on their shoulders, like the summer cuirassiers in the Borodino set.
I would be very keen to see figures for Napoleon's earlier campaigns (they were his most successful, aferall)and for the Peninsular: waterloo has been done to death.
So, i would like to see Austrians in helmets;
Hungarians in helmets
Prussian Musketeers in Bicornes;
Prussian Fusiliers and Grenadiers;
French in Bicornes;
Russians in shakos (at the moment only grenadiers are available);
Dutch in shakos
British in Stovepipe shakos
Portuguese in Stovepipes and/or barretina (the former is arguably more versatile, as the uniform can also serve for later spanish and some Prussian reserve regeiments)
Spanish in Bicornes
You've already done two sets of Highlanders, so I think they're covered. I prefer my figures not to be in great coats, it takes away the beauty of the uniforms. I have to say I'm not too keen on standing poses, but your marching and advancing ones are beautiful. As several others have mentioned, I use marching figures with shouldered, rather than slung muskets.
I would also be interested in seeing figures for the French Revolutionary wars, so,
Austrians in casquettes
British in bicornes and long-tailed coats with lapels
Prussians in casquettes
Russians in Bicornes
French in tarletons
A little exotic, but in the longer term i would like to see:
Hessians in bicornes
Badeners in helmets
Wurtemburgers in crested or dragoon-style helmets
Bavarians in raupenhelm
I personally don't need any French garde off any description, as i have more than i know what to do with!
Of course, if there was any scope for a generic set of marching figures for the Great Northern and Marlburian wars (Tricornes, no turnbacks on the coat) then i would snaffle them up like nobody's business :)
Thank you for asking!
Traveller, I am with you. I would buy any sets in greatcoats for early or late Napoleonic wars
First couple of sets should be austrians and russian musketeers. I will anyway buy all the napoleonics that Strelets will produce.
How about the Ottomans who fought the Austrians and Russian... perhaps some mercenary French troops too.
Austrians in helmet. No one else does them - so they are a gap in the market. HAT already produces marching figures, so from a sales point of view I'd look at what they haven't done for starters.
