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.
I second the calls to Egyptian forces but there is, in my view, another gap in 1/72nd colonials that Strelets would now be well placed to plug.
Also a good match to the late colonial Slade Wallace-equipped Brits would be Pathans for the North West Frontier campaigns of the 1890s. The HaT Indian infantry and Bengal Lancers plus the Strelets British and Highland infantry go a long way to representing one side of the conflict.
I would suggest:
Indian Army Gurkhas
Screw guns with Indian crews
Screw guns with British RA crews
Great suggestion! I support this also. And this may be just as popular as WSS. I had hoped Strelets would expand into this line as they had actually asked forum members about NW Frontier movies some time ago...I think the upcoming Highlanders in Attack set would be a good "foot-in-the door" and overlaps NW Frontier (which is what I'll be buying my sets for)...so lets still hope for something in 2020 then...
It is unlikely I will ever buy into the NW Frontier as a gaming period. This is because I already have extensive collections of two other Colonial wars: the Zulu Wars & The Sudan.
The space & time needed for a third period would make a further committent foolish.
However, I'm not posting to rain on your parade. I am but one potential buyer amongst hundreds who would be keen. I think the NW Frontier would be an excellent area for Strelets to enter with a plethora of great sets. I believe it would get a lot of interest & generate sales.
And who knows? If the figures are tempting enough I may show I am indeed foolish & buy into it.
Couldn't agree more.....I've used the Red Box Pathans and Gurkhas but would gladly replace them with new Strelets sets.
