Re: Friday Model

Good to see any additions to available figures, however I would prefer to see the gaps in the hobby closed rather than repeating types of troops that have already been covered by others, no matter how badly. But to emphasise, glad to see more variety on the way.

Re: Friday Model

They really look good. Almost want to get some of these as a painting project

Re: Friday Model

Nice more French napoleonic and Russians.can’t wait.thank you strelets.

Re: Friday Model

I think maybe the left hand figure could be polish I hope so still waiting for the polish artillery set to come along.

Re: Friday Model

Definitely not polish or saxons but looks like pre baradin 1812 uniforms.if i remember corectly only one division who went to russia in 1812 had new 1812 baradin uniforms.rest had early pre1812 uniforms looks like soldiers for borodino it was fought on 7 september 1812 so it wasn’t cold that day.elites hoply strelets will make fusiliers too.greetings.

Re: Friday Model

These have to be Set 197 French Infantry in Summer Dress Standing at Ease as advertised on the sides of the recent batch of boxes, only there is a problem these have two cross belts which would mark them as Elites such as Grenadiers or Light Infantry except they have no epaulettes or plumes, if they had just one cross belt they would be Fusiliers, so I think Strelets may have made an error in their research hopefully it's not to late to change things.

The Elites wore sword and bayonet scabbard on a cross-belt over the right shoulder and cartridge box other the left shoulder, the Fusiliers wore the cartridge box and scabbard on a single cross-belt over the left shoulder only, both would of had some kind of water bottle other the right shoulder but on a thin strap and not a cross belt.


Having said that the quality of sculpting is once again excellent.

Re: Friday Model

Well I can see one sabre-briquet and possibly an epaulet and the other figure has shako cords so they must be elite company men... problem solved

I have to concede these must be Elites with no plumes in campaign trousers, which leads me to ask will there be any Fusiliers the most common form of French infantryman and much more in demand than the Elites which have been done many times before, I would not mind if the boxes contained both but would expect there to be two Fusiliers to every one Elite figure.

Re: Friday Model PLEASE STRELETS CAN YOU ADD MISSING EPAULETS?

Ow yes they are missing epaulets.Please strelets add epaulets.can you make it correct or is it too late?
