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 love these - I know a lot of gamers don't like casualty poses but I for one think they're important. After all, a lot of good men get killed in battle. I think even if I was a gamer I'd use them as casualty markers.
nice sculpts and an interesting addition to the range, my only concern as a gamer is how many of these poses would be in a box, as someone who would be looking at buying 6 or more boxes. if there were 4 in a box fine but if there are 4 on every sprue then i am afraid it would be one box only that would get purchased
Great looking figures seems there are a lot of Bavarian troops coming our way i hope strelets will be releasing the same amount of Brunswick sets in the future.
Also what about producing Napoleonic FIRING LINES we have every other pose but not these the role of a soldier in battle is to shoot at each other.
These casualties could never happen on a strelets battlefield as nobody is able to shoot at each other.:upside_down_face:
Casualty poses, you beauty!
They are brilliant as markers, particularly for people like me who hate individual figures and/or those using sets of rules that do not involve removal of figures (all the rage at present, it would seem).
Ykreol did them really well, but their 'leaving the field' has left a glaring gap.
Odd as it may seem to anybody outside the hobby, Strelets are actually providing much needed joy with these pictures - many thanks for that!
Well done,casualty poses, I promise to buy this set for no other reason 10/10.
quite excited about these Bavarians. any chance they could be released in the same light blue color used for set 186 French Legion/Rif War? seems you also used a similar color in sets 903 (thin red line) and 110 Turkish cavalry (Russo/Turkish War). you already have the color formula and it would set these fine sculpts off from the rest of the pack. thanks for your consideration.
This has become one seemingly endless thread of joy!
Great to see all the new, original stuff but wish you hadn't abandoned the War of 1812 range you started :worried: Or the RCW-related conflicts 1917-1921 for that matter...
The Guard casualty pose made my jaw drop....honestly, but the hand on the blade, French nappy sword blades were sharp, unlike their Brit counterparts who used a nice metal scabbard almost designed to blunt the blade.
The Guard casualty pose is a Linear-A offering and indeed it is very nice.
Casualty figures are another thing asked for on the forum. Well done Strelets.
Good looking casualties but potential for non casualty figures too. The guy second from the left, just put the musket back in his hand and he is running and jumping over obstacles; I can see him coming over the top of an enemy defensive work or climbing the rubble of a breach; move his left arm a bit and he's climbing a fence. Awesome figure!
The guy on far right, a bit more work but he would make a good advancing figure and I'm not sure what's going on with the guy on left but he just needs a musket to make him a loader. I'm assuming here that the unbased figures are sculpted on the back rather than having a flat surface like some casualty figures.
For wargamers who don't use casualty markers, surely a standing casualty included on some of your stands would give some welcome variety.
Great figures, the only question is: do I need to start buying Bavarians so I can use them?
The figure third from the left is a very similar pose to a Portuguese artilleryman.
