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.
Generic civilians works better than most, a civilian for the period of the set it comes with works better for me at least , ie WW2 Europe , a civilian that fits, Napoleonic a civilian that fits , wss etc etc, and not forgetting the LRDG set needs making too :wink:
Mr Buckingham - Are you looking for figures to mount in jeeps?
Yes as well, but on foot would be good, just going stuff, like road watch, advancing , firing .
There are a few metals around, 20mm so on the small side,dixon are 18mm and way too small , some of the metals have stens , that never made it to the desert, the best is a wargames foundry figure, but they only do one pose ! some of the other metals are quite good, one with a vickers k being the pick.
I think this a brilliant idea as I think the Streltsi have run their course now. Obviously difficult to do dedicated sets as everybody will want different stuff but if you are buying for a particular era then if all the sets contained a civilian from that era it's bound to be useful. Probably a bit ambitious but what would really be wonderful is a little tableaux like a blacksmith working at the anvil or a women weaving or grinding grain.
Up to now, Strelets have left civilians to Linear A and Linear B. Although I do have a number of Strelets very first set FRENCH ARMY CAMP.
I meant to add that the French Army Camp has a number of civilians in it. So Strelets have already set the precedent.
