Re: Scaling up

it would drain my bank account if they upscaled their dark age norman and saxon range.

Re: Scaling up

If it doesnt impact on the production of 1/72 scale figures and helps make Strelets more financially secure then im all for it, even though my scale is indeed 1/72.

If however it would impact on Strelets production of 1/72, bearing in mind Strelets are on a roll currently and probably at the top of the pyramid in terms of plastic soldier companys, then i dont think they should delve into the bigger scales.

Re: Scaling up

"Strelets are...probably at the top of the pyramid..."

Wow! A 1/32 pyramid would fill the whole house...!

Re: Scaling up

I am more of a PC gamer at heart myself, so the lower numbers of the 1/32 scale work fine for 20th century conflicts but just make it more difficult (and expensive) to make large formations for earlier eras in my opinion. But if it makes the company some money, then why not?

Re: Scaling up

Dear James,

whilst we appreciate the merits of bigger scales, we are fans of historical 1/72 scale miniatures and will remain in this niche in foreseeable future.
Best regards,

Strelets

Me, too, Strelets.

I wonder how exclusive the market is for the two different scales?
Are most like me: fans of 1/72 & nothing else, or is there a large cross over market?

Re: Scaling up

Dear Strelets,

Thank you for replying. I suspected that would be the case and it makes perfect sense. Focus on what you do well—and you do it d@mned well, as Roger pointed out above!

Donald, from my network, which is small on a personal level, but increased greatly by blogs, I get the strong impression that most people restrict themselves to a single, preferred scale, be it 5/6 mm, 15 mm, 20 mm, 1/72 (perhaps with a bit of 20 mm/25 mm thrown in), 30 mm, 54 mm, or larger for model makers. However, the results of the Great Wargaming Survey suggest over 50% or respondents use three or more scales: https://www.karwansaraypublishers.com/wss_gws/gws-2019-scale-versus-style/

I'm into a bit of cross-over, so to speak, in selected eras, so perhaps I'm in the norm, for a change :joy:

Regards, James

Re: Scaling up

Disappointing but understandable.

To answer the question: I collect in both 1/72 and 1/32 scale though, with a few exceptions I concentrate my painting at 1/72 scale.
