Welcome to the Strelets Forum.
Please feel free to discuss any aspect of 1/72 scale plastic figures, not simply Strelets.
If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
Strelets already has produced many great sets for Russian Civil War and Back Of Beyond.
I really wish (need/dream) for Chinese militia suitable for Russian Civil War, Back Of Beyond, Warlordism Era, China Civil War and WW2.
Less like this:
And more like this (no characteristic communist uniform, varied odd equipment, bamboo pikes, swords and single shot rifles):
Militia infantry should be supported by suitable irregular cavalry:
F.ex. in 28 mm Miniature Figurines has made great cavalry:
And especially for my friend Trzmielo (http://figsy.blogspot.com/), who wish for China regular infantry in British helmets:
Dear Strelets, please remember those figures should be a bit smaller. Hunger didn't help to grow tall.
Let Chinese brands manufacture these interesting sets
Trzmielo and I were for +10 years persuading Ceasar Miniatures to produce such sets and they repeatedly decline due to I suspect political correctness and national embarassement factor. I doubt if they ever produce even Chinese communists, not saying about militia or warlords.
I support the request for Chinese infantry but I would rather like to see them in 1937 uniform (not the German one) than in civil rags.
These are great ideas and could easily be a whole range. It would be nice to see Japanese in cold weather gear as well. Would open up a whole wealth of historical scenarios - Japanese v Nationalists, Japanese v Communists, Japanese v Russians, Nationalist v Communists, warlords fighting alongside or against the political factions. Good chance to have pre-war and early war rubbish armour on the table.
Totally support this idea. Been hoping for sets like these a long time.
