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.
Given the quantity of releases by Strelets, it seems a bit churlish to request something else.
However, I would ask them to consider creating a set of Sudanese in Egyptian service for The Sudan.
I'm reading rather a good book that highlights the exploits of these troops in various battles of the war. They tended to be the 'storm troopers" of the Egyptian army.
As far as I can see, such troops, with their Sudanese faces, have a uniform not readily able to be converted. They wore blue puttees, khaki pants, a khaki pullover & a tarboosh with a plume. The collarless pullover is the real stumbling block.
Any chance, Strelets?
The period sits well with he Boer war, and in our hobby precious few sets for it, particularly the Omdurman campaign.
Agreed. Maybe even a few Egyptians -- of which there are precious few in our scale -- along with the Sudanese? As with many of these colonial conflicts, one can pretty well cobble together the British side, but their allies and enemies are very thin on the ground.
Yes to Egyptian infantry - including white uniforms - and to artillery and cavalry.
No one has offered Mahdist artillery, which might be an idea.
Also a good match to the late colonial Slade Wallace-equipped Brits would be Pathans for the North West Frontier campaigns of the 1890s.
