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 have the recent WW1 sets and they are awesome, but I had some questions about how they could be used and haven't really found anything satisfactory online, so I wanted to see if someone here might know:
1). With regards to the new Serbian Infantry in Winter Uniform, if using them as late war troops would they have still been fighting the Austro-Hungarians or were they mainly fighting German and Bulgarian forces? I would like to use these against the previous Strelets sets of Austrians.
2). Did the Polish Blue Army fight mostly by itself or did it mount joint operations with other Allied nations on the Western front? I'm thinking these would go well next to the Strelets French Infantry in Gas Masks.
Of course, the beauty of toy soldiers is that one can use them anyway they wish, but with these new troops now available in 1/72 plastic I'd like to use them in a more or less historically accurate fashion.
Thanks in advance for any info!
The Serbs can also be used against Turks I think, and from what I can see just about everyone on one side threw punches at just about everyone on the other in the Balkans.
Dear Colin D.,
Blue Army set was designed primarily with Soviet-Polish war in mind, hence some poses, useful for fighting 1st Red Cavalry. It was instrumental in repelling the Red Army advance in Poland and "miracle at the Vizsla".
Having said that, this army started its career on the Western front as part of French army, pretty much like Russian expeditionary corps in France.
Thank you Alan and Strelets! I imagine the Polish Blue Army could also be used against the Strelets Russian Civil War Red Army Infantry sets. Truly a great time for fans of 20th century sets!
Haller's Polish Blue Army also fought in the Polish-Ukrainian War 1918-1919 so Strelets might like to make some Ukrainian nationalist forces too :smiley:
