Re: Its Friday... on Thursday, well nearly Friday...close enough....

Well off to bed, but it is nearly Friday, so here`s hoping for some more nice deserty figures in the morning.

Re: Its Friday... on Thursday, well nearly Friday...close enough....

Neh, I've had enough dust sand and heat in the last weeks to last me a while. It is about time for some proper 1812-1815 french fusiliers, kitted out correctly.

100% agree!!!!!!
And some 1812-1815 French Foot Artillery to go with them!

Still like to see some British/KGL Line sets in Square formation too. Same for Brunswick and Nassau!!

Then theres British/KGL light dragoons & Hussars.....
The cavalry would be better done swords drawn at the ready rather than in full charge though.

But definately a need for some proper 1812-1815 French who are either in a proper marching formation, advancing/attacking & a firing line.

Or if Strelets is in the mood for something different, what about French attacking a fortified position such as La Haye Sainte or Hougoumont with siege ladders etc?

Then theres the defenders...

This could go on so i will stop there!!!!!!!! 😂😂

Re: Its Friday... on Thursday, well nearly Friday...close enough....

I agree lets see some Napoleonic sets its been a while, nice if they were artillery or cavalry

Re: Its Friday... on Thursday, well nearly Friday...close enough....

Yeah, anything before 1815 would been fine .
...but Strelets are very gifted to surprise us...

Re: Its Friday... on Thursday, well nearly Friday...close enough....

Hear, hear!

I mean, how hard can it be?

When you get up on Friday morning perhaps you can hint about next Friday (28th August), then you really will be pre-emptive
:upside_down_face: :)
Keep up the good work Ol' chap. I for one could use a lot more desert-stuff. With the odd camel of course.:sunglasses:

Re: Its Friday... on Thursday, well nearly Friday...close enough....

ACW and WW1 seem to have dried up. Hope to have them revive.

Well I can see a few uses for that officer. Very nice.

A very good officer figure with a range of possible uses, both in the desert and elsewhere.

The two SAS types are nicely sculpted but are clearly looking for something....a set of Baggage Camels that never appeared perhaps...?

It's interesting to reflect that, at Drum and Flag, early showing on sales seems to suggest that the top sellers have been Napoleonics and in particular the Prussian cavalry sets. So the 'nappy nay sayers' clearly still have something to say when it comes to spending cash on figures.

I for one am delighted to have managed to buy pristine sets of Revell Swedish Thirty years War figures via e-bay for my TYW project/distraction, and am as delighted with these 'old' figures as with any new set I could think of.:grinning:

Enjoy the weekend.

At last, some really spectacular Brits of the 20th century!!!

Re: Its Friday... on Thursday, well nearly Friday...close enough....

Well alas not Napoleonic but still some very nice sculpts and poses. Officer looks amazing.
Your sculpting certainly seems to make these poses come "alive".
So while not for me, i can still definately appreciate the excellent work, and continue to pine for it to be utililised on some of those Napoleonics! 😣😭

Re: Its Friday... on Thursday, well nearly Friday....now Saturday, and more Napoleonics

Napoleonics!! The proof, if any was required, of the continuing popularity of this fascinating, colourful and varied era of warfare is clearly in the sales over recent days of the new Strelets sets. Prussians sold out, French infantry in summer uniform sold out, Bavarians sold out.

It is not for me to say what Strelets might have on their list of new sets after the ones we already know about, but I'd suggest that more Napoleonic subjects would be a popular and best-selling option. The definitive set(s) of 1812-15 French infantry still needs to be modelled; Austrian cavalry in a similar style to the latest Prussian sets; Prussian cavalry (Dragoons, Hussars, Uhlans), in advance and/or in attack; French artillery for 1812/15; 1815 Brunswick, Hanoverian, Nassau etc, sets in attack and defence; cameo sets for key actions such as Hougoumont and the Grand Redoubt at Borodino; Hanoverian and British Rifles; skirmishing sets for: British/KGL, French 1812-15, Russian 1812-15, Austrian 1812-15, Prussian 1813-15, and so on..... Great potential, potentially great sales, and hardly a grain of sand in sight.

Re: Its Friday... on Thursday, well nearly Friday....now Saturday, and more Napoleonics

Well Minuteman I can honestly say I would certainly buy those sets you mentioned if done right and not just the odd box either!!!
Thats the thing about recreating them big impressive Napoleonic battles....they fielded big impressive armies!!
So whether its a diorama of Waterloo or a wargame of Borodino, its fair to say a good, well planned out, well made set will not just sell, but sell in large quantities.

PS....you forgot the British/KGL Light Dragoons & Hussars!!! 😉😂
