Doesn't the sculptor know how a fife looks like and how it is held? What we see is a recorder ...
Really great set of Russians Strelets going from strength to strength outstanding thanks Mr strelets.
Another great napo set..
Strelets has a good run today..
Wonderful sculpting, just make sure there are more than one of the command figures in the set, I need commanders for my old Springwood hard plastic Russians.
Kudos on what looks to be another great set.
Let me make it simple for Strelets - I have enough Russian infantry, don't need any more, but don't have enough officers. If this set has three or more officers in it, I will buy several sets. If not, I won't buy any. Over to you.
May I add to the chorus of praise?
I would not have thought that you could improve on your previous sets, but these are a step up again. Such beautiful sculpting and wonderful detail. The poses—officers, colour-bearer, drummer, fifer, grenadiers—are realistic and well-proportioned with a marvellous mixture in the latter.
I am pleased that I have not yet started to accumulate figures for late Russians as these, and their compatriots in greatcoats, will form the basis of them.
Thanks team Strelets!
"The poses—officers, colour-bearer, drummer, fifer, grenadiers—are realistic ..."
Unrestricted praise and fact-resistance to the last. Remarkable ...
A constructive suggestion: Remove the fife-case from the "fifer" and add a bell to the recorder or tin whistle and you get a clarinet, which makes a passable bandsman. (Well, you can even leave the fife case and pretend it's an etui for the clarinet ...:relaxed: )
