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.
Many ACW enthusiasts kept asking for those, now the masters for a dedicated new set are up. :grinning:
At least 19 excellent looking poses, bravo Strelets! :+1:
I guess set 159 won‘t be the last one in this vein.
Great to see how Strelets handles this range so thoroughly! :+1:
Lovely figures, Hopefully Napoleonic's are in the pipeline also, love the little wounded figures
Tremendous, Strelets. Been waiting for these. Can't wait for their release. :+1:
There nice, but I don't care for the long coats. They look too much like French legionaires. The poses are very good though.
I too would welcome firing lines for the Napoleonic ranges hopefully including the polish figures as well if possible.
Nice to see that you listen to your customers needs & act quickly thanks for being Strelets & not like a certain company who take forever to bring their projects to fruition.:kissing_smiling_eyes:
Great figures! Any idea of when their release date?
I think these are the most exciting figures of the whole range so far! Great job.
Hate to be a fly in the ointment but these are a little disappointing. The coats are a little too long. There are no BAYONETS on the guns of the shooters. There are no kneeling shooters and yes firing lines did have kneelers. Sorry. Just my opinion. Cappy
Great figures - just what I have been waiting for.
Good to see so many decent length frock-coats.
I can see lots of uses for these figures.
Not my period at all but just looking at the sculpting there's some very nice anatomatical proportions on show but on the other hand a hint in several figures of the return of the bow-legged, rickety stances that marred many of the older sets.
On the subject of fixed bayonets on the firing line: it was common enough for units to fix bayonets, move forward and engage successfully, and then find themselves functioning as the new firing line. They did not then unfix bayonets before firing. This happened more than once with Federal regiments at the Angle during Pickett's Charge (and I'm imagining the Union firing line as intended to be receiving that charge). So either fixed or unfixed bayonets could be fine for a firing line at Gettysburg.
I also think the frock coats make them look a bit odd, I will buy some sets nevertheless because of the reloading poses, hard to find good reloaders in other sets.
Joining in the 'hurrah'. Lovely figures and beaut variety, as ever from Strelets!
