Re: Would you pay a little more ?

Dear Mr. Strelets,

Re: Set STR180 Prussian Infantry Standing Shoulder Arms

From what previous forum people have highlighted is that in this set; three of the sprues have the two figures on the left and three figures on the right cut off or removed. So 1 Streltsi and 4 Prussians are lost from each sprue.

Q1a. So what do you (Mr. Strelets and/or manufacturer) do with those missing 15 figures?
Q1b. Do you just throw those cut off figures away?

Q2. Why don't you package those missing Prussian figures into another set/box? For example, for every four boxes of STR180 you manufacture, you would have 3x4x4= 48 Prussian command figures you could repackage and sell separately at the regular price.

The same philosophy could be used for other sets (including ACW) having "missing" or removed command figures...

Re: Would you pay a little more ?

Hi Steve.

most of the posters on this topic were in favour of this idea or suggested that they extra figures be sold as a seperate command pack.

If you take a moment to read Baratheons post it asked sensible well thought out questions of Strelets who we can hope will post a response.

On the subject of respect to others, calling the company that provides this space for us to discuss our hobby and who produces a wide range of figures which we have the pleasure of buying or not cynical or scammers is very poor in my opinion, and as we say in Scotland manners and good grace cost nothing.

On a final note lets all enjoy our collecting and buy as many or as few figures that makes us happy.

Have a nice day wherever you are and lets support our very niche hobby
