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.
Set M131 seems to be ready for release.
Good looking figures in 12 action-heavy poses.
Sculpting standard, variety of poses & weapons, anatomy & general postures are more than convincing. :+1:
Keep em coming, Strelets! :sunglasses:
Yes, I like those a lot, I think the poses are great for mounted infantry.
i like the strelets figure in this set, alot.
Different equipment, nine pouch bandolier five front, four back which they appear to be missing(frontline mounted troops)though that may not be wrong as its possible that some may have the five pouch bandolier + four belt pouches for 90 rounds, sometimes gaiters..
otherwise not a lot
the box art shows a mishmash of infantry from both wars not mounted troops(no bandoliers)... the infantry equiptment was an Australian natural brown leather pattern similar to the British 1908 webbing...
AIF ICC ignore service cap, 5 pouch? + 4 belt pouches
AIF ICC probably has 9 pouch bandolier
AIF Collection WW1
ICC Collection WW1
Bear in mind the weight and distribution of the ammo a not inconsiderable load...
So could these double as dismounted (horse) cavalry?
Thinking of 1914 BEF, after a headswap that is. Regards, Pa
Thank you Ironsides, much appreciated.
The light Hotchkiss is also available from Early War Miniatures with Indian https://earlywarminiatures.com/product/t-l-2-x-indian-cavalry-dismounted-and-operating-a-hotchkiss-mg/ or Australian crew https://earlywarminiatures.com/product/t-l-2-x-prone-dismounted-australian-ight-cavalry-using-mmg/.
I have not seen their Australians but found the Indians to be an excellent match with the WW1 plastic Indian infantry released by another manufacturer in 2011. Regards, Pa
