Re: Strelets' French Foreign Legion Sets

May I add my congratulations concerning the FFL figures. I have recently completed painting the latest artillery set and they all combine to make the security at my fort more secure with all those Rifs and Arabs knocking about. I thought the marching patrol were particularly impressive. Whilst I don't wish anything bad on the boys a few casualties wouldn't go amiss
However that said I once came across a contingent of modern day FFL whilst hiking the GR20 in Corsica and they didn't look like any of them. Plus there wasn't a mule or camel in sight.

These figures are fine for late 19th century and very early 20th century conflicts in North Africa but not much use for anything after around 1910 as they wear the wrong uniforms.
PSR have just reviewed the Legion Artillery set which explains the issues very aptly.
The mountain gun is very good and its worth buying this set for the gun alone which has many uses.
I hope Strelets do make Legionaires with mules and perhaps a more authentic set for the Rif War and maybe even a proper set of Rif Berbers.

Re: Strelets' French Foreign Legion Sets

It looks like the more recent pics means that we have an "FFL At Rest" set coming? I hope this set has many more poses to appropriately populate an oasis encampment or fort. I'm also assuming the poses we saw back in July come from another different set - perhaps "FFL in Skirmish"?




Re: Strelets' French Foreign Legion Sets

Every now and again a set that is "boys own" rather than historically accurate works , Strelets Hollywood FFL are such sets.
