Well Richard tbh I think that no manufacturer has ever provided us who are interested in the Far East with as many sets as Strelets: two sets of infantry, paratroopers, two sets of light AA weapons, "heavy" infantry weapons, field artillery. And at least on further set is in the works as hinted by recent "Friday previews": artillery crew of some sort, which I am looking forward too hoping the sculpts will be improved up to Strelets' latest standard.
I have to agree with Graham a set or two of Chinese is lacking. Then Japanese in winter gear would have someone to fight. I'd also like to see some 14th Army troops for the Burma campaign. Regards, Pa
yes Strelets are giving us a nice range, but I was specifically wondering about the Winter Japs.
Being greedy, I suppose I always want more! I've tried the artillery sets but to be honest I'd prefer them in hard plastic or metal as I find assembly, glueing etc a tricky, and sometimes the pieces seem a bit fragile. Hence, my personal preferance is for hard plastic, metal.
Looking at my old collections, the problem is that so many of them lack compatibility, and more importantly lack heavy weapons etc!
I'd therefore like to see a coherent range of compatible sets, complementing each other. My thoughts for an ideal world! This is course just my personal observations and wants, it's horses for courses so to speak!
I just hope that Strelets continues to develop their Japanese range, as I said in another thread I'd love to see the American Civil War range expanded - I'd love to see Big Box Union and Confederate artillery sets with limbers, command figures etc.
