Re: Rif war

"Strelets decided to produce new FFL sets and wanted to categorise them within their catalogue. In the absence of another major conflict this specific troops could have been involved, Strelets picked the Rif War then."

Wouldn't "Colonial" have been the most likely category?

Therefore, here is hope Strelets will do at least one more Rif War set (provided we buy them) and the most obvious omission is Spanish infantry. :wink:

Re: Rif war

Marvellous pictures AP. You have me wanting some 1/72nd representations of the characters shown. especially the cavalry. Being realistic, one knows that Strelets have to have sales in mind. That is why they are producing the French Foreign Legion as depicted in FIlms.
However, If enough of us ask; we might get.
After all that's how we are getting the Camel units.

Re: Rif war

Thanks Murat. The paintings you are referring to are depicting the multiple desperate charges of the cavalry unit Cazadores de Alcántara against Riffian Berbers to protect the routing Spanish forces at Annual. They suffered tremendous loses - 28 of 32 officers and 523 of 685 cavalrymen dead.

Cazadores de Alcántara, 14th Cavalry is the only regiment of the Spanish Army that was collectively granted the Grand Cross Laureate of San Fernando. This medal of distinction, is the highest military decoration that can be granted in Spain.

Re: Rif war

Thank you for your prompt reply Strelets and for all the other excellent sets you are producing ! Still no 1 in the plastic figure market in my opinion
