Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

Fantastic! I hope these will be in the next batch of releases. I'll be buying loads!

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

Wow, these are a dream come true! The poses and details look absolutely life-like. More figures I can't wait to have in my hands. Thank you so much Strelets Team for making this set and the other Colonial sets - Really. You guys are simply awesome! :relaxed:

To everyone, don't forget to look up the great online historical site:

BritishBattles.com

Under the Boer Wars, there are lots of battles you can use these new figures in, plus more.

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

really superb!!!
Rule Britannia !!!

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

Agree, excellent

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

I hope Strelets will make the best out of this beautiful masters. I was waiting for a long time for a set of this guys to arrive at such a high standard... they will sell like hotcakes for sure (while GarrisonClay alone will probably buy half of the produced sets :smile: ).



Now we can just cross our fingers and wait in hope for a new Boer Commando set, so that our new British troops will get a worthy adversary.



Till then...

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

Dear AP,

so far only these:

Best regards,

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

Add me to the growing list of admirers of these masters, Strelets please do all you can so that the figures we buy are equally as good, if they are then I will be buys lots of them, whoop whoop delighted.

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

Sigh... I've shared elsewhere my previous heartbreak and abandonment of 19th C. British Colonial Campaigns in 1/72 scale; but with the resurgence across the board of beautiful sets like these I'm sorely tempted to come back in. Even the daunting thought of my painting backlog isn't really a deterrent as with the colors the new sets are coming out in I can "play with them straight out of the box if I so choose.

Great work.

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

Really great! The british and the boers too ...

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

Oh baby !!!!

Strelets: "... so far ..."

This words are enough, that my crossed fingers are getting a bit loose and my waiting in hope feels like I'm almost half there. Thank you Strelets for delving further into 'The Last of the Gentlemen's Wars'.

Here some visuals for your sculptors inspiration.

Amazing masters ...I hope to see a good traslation into a box. and I waiting the highlander too. Good job Strelets crew.

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

These figures look great !I hope there will be set 2 with advancing poses...

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

The best 1/72nd news in years!

Great to have a Boer war set of infantry but I assume that this is Slade Wallace equipment and that, at this scale, there's no discernable difference between a Lee Enfield of the period and a Lee Metford?

Assuming so, this is a great set of infantry for the North West Frontier, and would complement the HaT Indian infantry and Bengal Lancers.

I'd love to see some new Highlanders of this period in due course.

And bring on the Pathans!

Re: New British Infantry - Bravo Strelets!

Magnificent!

Crimean British and Russian infantry next for the updating treatment? Pretty please?

The Lee Metford is quite distinct from the Enfield due to the half round fore stock and conventional protruding muzzle vs the full round hand guard and "snub nose" appearance of the L.E.

IMHO this would be quite noticeable at 1/72, given the superlative standard of sculpting in these new figures
