Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

Strelets
Dear Edwardian,

usually the initial lot, ordered by any dealer is sold quite quickly, hence it's not an indication of a specific set's popularity. It's the subsequent (usually within 1 year after release) orders, that show true popularity of a subject.
Anyway, we assume, that your main question was whether we would expand this series. The answer is "yes", with the next set's release being December 2019 and, all going well, a couple of subsequent ones in 1Q 2020.
Best regards,

Strelets
Thank you for that information, I look forwards to these releases.

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

Thank you for the reply and for the excellent news.

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

Dear Strelets,

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.

Dear Allan,

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!

Best regards,

Strelets

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

Sweet!

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.

This officer

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.

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

when will any of these sets get to the states?

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

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! 🤗👍

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

Oh la vache!

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

Hi Strelets,

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

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

Gentlemen, I think these might be french (they look great) and I am definitely starting to love this period.

Western Desert

"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.

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

Just magnificent! Please, kneeling firing poses as well. I think essential for wss era firing lines.

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

Well said Philip!

Re: Strelets - How are your WSS figures doing?

More excellent figures; thanks Strelets.

I agree with Alessandro, I think they are intended for French.

I suspect that they could also find service as Spanish.
