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.
Agreed!! And I would very much like to buy a few sets of M011 as well, if these were available.
With the Strelets Crimean series it is apparent that, while almost all of the sets (including I think all of the cavalry sets) are still available via the major on-line retailers, the troops that we need most of for this conflict ie: line infantry, sold out some time ago. The only Russian infantry set available is, I think, the Grenadiers (in summer uniform) and I believe that the British line infantry set is also difficult to find....and, like set 025, could do with a re-design and re-tooling anyway.
It is therefore difficult to develop a balanced army, and even recourse to e-bay or the second hand market only yields the odd set or two; so, not enough sets, and usually at inflated prices.
An appeal therefore to Strelets: Please consider this not only from the point of view of collectors, who may simply buy one or two sets of each; but also from wargamers, who need lots of the main troop type, which is most often a generic line infantry set. If that main troop type can no longer be produced - as in the case of the sets mentioned here by James and myself - because the moulds are no longer in use, please consider a replacement set.
This would be a smart approach to keeping customers even happier. We are, I should add, usually happy anyway, but....:smiley:
I agree tihw you .We need new Russian Crimean infantry - small sets.
In winter coats and summer dress !!!
moulds for this set have been re-cycled.
At the moment we don't have plans to return to the CW.
Please, be guided accordingly.
