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.
Well done Jaques, I had seen these figures on Benno`s before, but they are still worth talking about here, not only are they very good conversions, but they are a subject yet to be covered by anyone, and not just a wide variety of French colonial troops but other nations too, like Kings African rifles, WW1 and 2 , Italian etc.
Thanks for the comment.
Most of the figures in the Blue Army of Strelets, I just changed heads and those with machetes, were more modified.
Yes, nice little set up Mr Cavalcanti. As Mr B says, it's good to see under represented troops depicted. Great conversions, imaginative work, thanks for sharing.
Absolutely gorgeous. Where did the heads come from? I know these are WWI but I've just started playing Western desert, so am anxiously awaiting the FFL for Bir Hakeim but I would dearly love to have Senegalese troops to attack Italian forts with. Currently trying hard to resist buying the Italeri Beau Geste set and all the Arab rising stuff and the Rif war stuff when it comes out. I'd also love colonial infantry for the fall of France.
Hi , Graham
The heads were modified, enlarged in size and dimensions with mass and copied in resin using heads of some Arab figures of the manufacturer Nikolai Miniatures.
Thanks for the info Jaques, sounds a bit more technical than a headswop from another set of figures. I think I'll just have to hope that Strelets decide to do colonial troops at some point.
Thanks for very kind offer but as I would want to do a platoon for Bolt Action I'd need about 35 and that is a lot more than a few extras! obviously I wouldn't dream of asking you to that level of effort.
