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.
This is really good news. I think this is an extremely attractive range of figures so far.
Being a collector, dioramist, playset collector and builder, but not a wargamer nor painter, I'm very excited to buy more add-on sets.
This is the perfect example of "Make a good set, and customers will buy." I knew nothing of this era/range before you started showing teaser pictures. Because of your sculptor's outstanding artistic skills, great action poses, fine details, attractive colors and usefulness/playability right out of the box, I knew I had to have this range.
This prompted me to seek historical expertise from the other forum members who helped me learn how these figures fit into the North American history "sealing the deal" for me.
I envy any child whose father buys some of these sets for this holiday season. Being a young kid and opening and discovering boxes of these sets under the wrapping paper would be the kind of exciting experience that would make a life-long toy soldier collector like so many of us here became. A very healthy kind of addiction, I may add!
Excellent post. Couldn't agree more.
I have a feeling restock orders will be coming in soon, if not already;
Out of curiousity, I have been watching set #230 stock levels at several on-line retailers - within a month more than 80% of their listed sets have sold. Obviously many more sets may have already been sold before being listed (i.e. customer pre-orders/back orders etc.). Two of those retailers have sold out already.
I think the figures look great but I have/will not buy set #230 as I am not interested in WSS. I was really surprised by the interest shown by forum members, and by the rapid sales.
I am pleased this has worked out well for Strelets! Well done!
Thank you for the reply and for the excellent news.
I am glad to see that this set is doing well but can I politely suggest that releasing 12 Napoleonic sets a month before Xmas might affect sales of sets. I placed a very large pre order of the Napoleonic sets with a minimum of 10 sets of each set.
This was a very large bill to get just as Christmas is coming up and I feel that all collectors would all like to get something for their period under the tree. I love your sets I just wish that we got our treats staggered throughout the year.
please take this comment with my best regards and hope that you will consider that when planning future releases.
May I be the first to wish all at Strelets a very merry Xmas when it comes.
may we say "thank you" for your kind wishes and, as a token of gratitude, give you a glimpse of a set, that, unlike Napoleonics, won't harm your well-being and won't put a strain on your finances.:wink:
Have a nice week-end!
I have been a re-enactor for forty years, working much of the time with black powder firers and firing lines of musketeers and dragoons.
These are some of the nicest models I have seen representing loading and firing. I particularly like the man loading his musket (which was shown a few days ago), with the bayonet fitted, as he holds his musket in just the right position in relation to his body.
is also very nice, very natural and nicely sculpted.
If I have one niggle - it's the chap actually firing his musket, ompared with the others it looks like his musket has bent just behind the lock and as a result he is holding it just a little too high.
But apart from that - box 'em and ship'em, Toot-sweet, quick as you like, thank you very much.
when will any of these sets get to the states?
Thanks for sharing this yet again great looking figures. 👍
Even more exciting to read that Strelets is going to expand this highly interisting range any time soon. 🤗
I also hope this venture into a new period will be well rewarded at the end of the day.
What a brillant time the hobby is going through during the last years! 🤗👍
Oh la vache!
These sets are really nice and I am sure many will love the excellent new period especially the firing poses.
I am sure my state of mind and finances will have recovered by your next release and I will keep buying all the new Napoleonic sets when they are released.
Can I also put in a good word for WWII Desert Campaigns I think that another Alan would love to see them.
P.S Can we get this firing line pose of figures for my next Napoleonic fix, we are sadly missing this part of the battle.
best wishes again to you are your staff for making us all very happy even as we constantly want more
Gentlemen, I think these might be french (they look great) and I am definitely starting to love this period.
"Can I also put in a good word for WWII Desert Campaigns..."
I would say we could do with a set of decent Italians in 'tropical dress' to go with that nice artillery that appeared so briefly the other month.
Just magnificent! Please, kneeling firing poses as well. I think essential for wss era firing lines.
Well said Philip!
