Re: Time to visit the North West Frontier?

Edwardian
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:

Pathan Infantry

Pathan cavalry

Indian Army Gurkhas

Screw guns with Indian crews

Screw guns with British RA crews
A really good idea. I like this.

Re: Time to visit the North West Frontier?

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.

Re: Time to visit the North West Frontier?

Couldn't agree more.....I've used the Red Box Pathans and Gurkhas but would gladly replace them with new Strelets sets.

Yes, Arab revolt sets shows irregular poses are perfected by Strelets. Bring on the tribesmen! (Regulars are also great btw!)
