Products I personally need (and maybe other members)

Hello everybody,

I am new here in this forum but I have been collecting Strelets figures for many years. I am writing now to underline my need (and maybe also other member's) regarding some troops and eras that have been avoided from many producers, and I hope Strelets will take into consideration my message for possible future sets.

WW1

-Romanian and/or greek troops
-German/austro-hungarian mountain troops

Roman empire

-Roman soldiers or cavalry for the Marcomannic Wars and 3rd century

Seven Years War

-French army

WW2

-Italian army with african equipment for the campaign of 1941

Rif war

-Spanish army 1920

Franco-prussian war

-Bavarian army 1870

War in Indochina

-French paratroopers 1954

Russo-turkish war

-Romanian army 1877

French revolutionary wars

-Russian army 1799

I thank you so much,

Alex

P.S.: love to see the new austrian and russian sets for the Napoleonic campaigns.

I love the use of the word "need" rather than "want". I agree there is much that I need :-)

Re: Products I personally need (and maybe other members)

Thank you Graham, I am glad you agree with me :)

Re: Products I personally need (and maybe other members)

Re: Products I personally need (and maybe other members)

Good choice.
I personally would buy of those abovementioned:

WW1

-Romanian and/or greek troops
-German/austro-hungarian mountain troops

Rif war

-Spanish army 1920

War in Indochina

-French paratroopers 1954

Re: Products I personally need (and maybe other members)

I am happy you agree with me.

Re: Products I personally need (and maybe other members)

In terms of WW2 - British paratroopers are poorly represented- particularly in terms of heavy weapons...
I would like to see some sets dedicated to European Wars of the 19th century - particularity the Franco-Prussian War.
Finally I agree that French Revolutionary Wars should be covered - Russians might be a good start. be nice to see some Austrains and French (The Italeri are nice but rather large) no-one does British or Hessians, or any of the other minor participants...

Re: Products I personally need (and maybe other members)

Good choice Phil!

Re: Products I personally need (and maybe other members)

I have another - I really 'need' - early British Napoleonic infantry (1800-1805)- stovepipe shakos and gaiters to the knee...
