The latest WWI masters from Strelets look amazing. I've been wanting to go into this era for a while, but when I look at the sets available I don't see what I want. When I think of WWI battles I see mass charges of men across no man's land, yet the sets available contain only a few moving poses. Isn't this something Strelets can remedy, with sets like "french WWI infantry charging" or "Anzac charging", or is it a touchy subject? Love to hear some comments about this.
I guess it all depends on the selection of poses. Strelets have shown with their Napoleonic and ACW sets that a dozend poses can be similar but not dull.
This is partly because unlike most other manufacturers, Strelets depict soldiers in a realistically motley equipment, not all in the identical parade dress. Regards, Pa
Well I hope they make their WWI range, I just looked at what's available for WWI at PSR, I mean it's just horribly bad, especially the output by HaT. The Zvezda sets look good but are terribly oversized.
It is true that we lack variety in WW1. I am sure that whatever Strelets make for that era will sell well.
I agree that Early Serbians are a must. People were put of by the Coates & Shine set; mostly because it was uninspiring with dull poses and poorly sculpted.
Strelet's choices of WW1 subjects have been great so far. I particularly like the big-gun sets and the cavalry: looking forward to the Austrian Honved.
