Re: Confederate infantry on the march

Dearest Strelets,

Great looking first round for your new ACW Range. For future rounds I'd hope to see ...

* Flags: Keeping flags are a must. Even better would be to have designs already on them. I never cut flags off, in fact if they are plain, I use a pointed hot soldering gun to carve my own flag designs. I never put paper on my plastic figures. Customers who don't like your flags can cut them off or paint over any details. I like them - please keep them.

* Blanket Rolls: Out of the 14 masters, I only see 3 wearing blanket rolls. I'd hope to see at least half with blanket rolls as being one of the more historical impressions of Confederates. And rounder blanket rolls so they stand out more prominently, please.

* Hats: I previously mentioned it would be nice to see a few more slouch hats with sides or front and front and back turned up, again, a kind of Confederate looking detail. And I sure like your variety of Kepis as they are. Really great!

* Details: Personally, your pipe pose is one of my favorites. My grandpa (WWI Vet) had a an impressive collection of them and used to love to just walk and talk while smoking them after a meal, and I liked listening to him chatting on, just like your pose :-)

OK, Thank you for new Teaser Pictures. I can't wait to feel them in my hands and admire their fantastic details!

Faithfully yours - GC
