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.
I see from your post that you say a command set will be added to these new figures, will this be a new set of command or will you be using the same moulds in the march / command sets.
loving the new figures i have many boxes on pre order and will now be adding another load, have you any thoughts on doing Napoleonic British line artillery and perhaps doing Prussians in all the same styles as the Poles, Brits and the glorious highlanders
thanks once again
Dear Allan from Glasgow,
both sets will receive new and more appropriate command groups.
Artillery isn't our best feature, so no plans at the moment.
Prussians ? May be some day.
PS. BTW, very recently we visited Wallace Monument and Bunnockburn historical site and offered to them our Border wars kits, alas, to no avail, although these kits are 100 % on the subject of their museums. Same attitude as in Battle of Hastings or Montfichet Castle to Norman Conquest sets.
thanks for the reply
the standard of your recent sets have shown great improvement, so perhaps if you offered the gun crews without the guns that would help lots of gamers and diorama makers with the option to switch out the same old four poses from other companies for your figures which always offer great character especially with the improved sculpting of late.
great news on different command sprues for the new British Napoleonic sets, and hopefully one day on the prussians.
I am sorry my countrymen had the short sightedness to not encourage the greater knowledge of famous battles by using your figures in a diorama or for purchase.
Allowing the general public to learn and interact with miniature figures that could bring the events they want to promote to life. We Scots are great at many things sadly marketing is this case is not one of them. We need to promote our rich heritage as much as possible in this ever changing world.
thanks on the quick reply and please rethink the idea of Artillery crew figures i am sure a large box of many different gun crews in action or setting up guns would be a great seller for you, I hope others feel the same about this idea.
O my god yes id have a field day grabbing boxes upon boxes of each French British and Prussian artillery figures, best idea of the year Allan. Would be a great venture.
Many thanks Phil and happy collecting
Just a thought, why bother with the guns? it`s the crew figures people want, a gun at rest looks a lot like a gun in action/on a limber etc and the hobby has loads of them already.
I completely support the artillery idea without guns.
Thann you Strelets for the great sets.
can you imagine an army commander, say Lord Wellington, looking at his artillery men, who have no their cannons with them ? What kind of thoughts would go through his mind ?
I am sure wellington would have gathered all his available gun crews and said lads no need to feel ashamed, all armies beg, borrow or steal guns.
I am pretty sure all napoleonic armies purchased or captured equipment in fact i believe the prussians used british guns.
I still think doing these sets would expand our gun crews and you new sculpts look fine against old esci, hat and italeri guns. i hope that one day you will produce these figures, in the mean time i have thousands of other little chaps to keep busy.
Allan from Glasgow
Thanks for the update on the command Strelets
I leave the idea of a British (and indeed other Napoleonics) command set for those who like pleny of officers and such like on the table
if you are still working up the command sets for the new sets, two standard bearers for the jolly old British would be lovely old chap
keep up the good work
hope you enjoyed the trip to Stirling
