Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

Alan Buckingham
Fifth ...James will think I have had a lie in ....More Desert stuff please, we have all had quite enough of all that black powder nonsense.
It's all been a bit 'dusty' on Fridays for the last few weeks; so much though I'd be vaguely interested to see some more Afrika Korps Support Group figures, I'd really like to see some 'black powder' figures. Or even something earlier and less dusty.

Oh, and those Martini Henry rifles used to create a fair bit of gun smoke, as Mr Buckingham will be all too well aware....

For anyone interested, here is a short video of a '100 year old Martini Henry cartridge' being fired! https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=KdSzOztikGc

Have a good weekend.

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

Maybe some italians with sun helmets?

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

Well, since, as a result of the present Lull of the Spanish Succession, I've just invested heavily in Strelets ACW and Russo-Turkish sets for conversion to War of the Triple Alliance troops, I expect that's what Strelets will announce next!

But, yes, for preference, clouds of black powder over swarms of black flies would be nice ...

...maybe Strelets have run out of new figures ?.....

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

Maybe the Strelets team is treating itself with a well-deserved holiday in the currently prevailing summer weather. :sunglasses:

Wishing them and all readers a very pleasant & sunny weekend! :+1: :smile:

If they are, worry not, the LRDG will find them and save the day.

Indian Mutiny or Afghan Wars?

Yes please, and throw in the Sikh Wars.

These all would be the best news since the WoSS

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

To please everyone, how about Napoleonic Egyptian Campaign LRDG riding camels?

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!


Do you not think that the Strelets teams are in the process of putting the standards on the boxes back on track, so that they can be marketed as quickly as possible? The heat, the holidays and the work, it can be very complicated for them . . . . . . In any case good luck if that is the case.

😓😷

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

If they have received it back - for sure they are.

Hope they could do this quickly and send us very interesting sets!

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

From your mouth and to the God's ear, as we in Greece use to say....:smiley:

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

My word, that is beautiful sculpting; the detail and particularly those determined and expressive faces.

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

Really goods....brava Strelets !!

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

I agree. Really superb sculpting !!!

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

Love it! Love it, love it, love it!

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

Excellent work

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

Fantastic figures! These will be ideal as part of the Maison du Roi cavalry in my French WoSS army. Well done to Strelets!!

Would be good to see the horse sculpts for these gentlemen some time?

.....And, although I hesitate to say it,:sweat_smile: these fine figures are a relief from all that sand, dust, flies and distant mirages of recent weeks.

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

That lesser known sequel The Two Musketeers. Thanks and well done Strelets

Re: FRIDAY IS FRIDAY !!!

Superb. Grey musketeers or black musketeers king's house. The cross and sun embroidered on the tabard leaves no doubt. Well done to the sculptor.

😁
