Re: PER IL 2021 .... DESIDERI

Goodness, how time flies. But I suppose now is as good a time as any to start thinking about 2021!

For me I think there are three generic areas I'd like Strelets to cover, please:

- as Luca suggests and has been discussed quite a lot here in the last year: Napoleonic sets for various nations in action/in defense/firing line (for infantry) and 'in advance' for cavalry.

- Complete the WoSS range with release of the cavalry sets already seen + the artillery set. And release extra cavalry sets for French Line cavalry, French Dragoons, and perhaps Bavarian cuirassiers

- A selection of sets for the Western Desert campaign (1940-43) covering various Axis (especially Italian) subjects.

Re: PER IL 2021 .... DESIDERI

WOW!! Thats a big list but yes I agree with all of it!!!!😁😂

Something else thats crossed my mind...what about a Napoleonic hospital themed set(s)?

Surgeons, orderlys (or whatever the Napoleonic equivelent was called), various wounded, some walking wounded,some severely, some led on tables awaiting or having a limb removed?

Maybe a set for Waterloo with the mix of nations represented, and one for Borodino for example? If wanted go all out then of course theres Austerlitz, Leipzig etc etc.

Gruesome subject, but for those who like to do dioramas, its a subject that hasnt really been tackled properly in plastic, yet its also a big part of showing just what a Napoleonic battle was like.
It also allows for Strelets to express themselves a little more.

Could also do such sets for other eras/conflicts perhaps?

Re: PER IL 2021 .... DESIDERI

Certamenteanche un set di feriti e chirurghi sarebbe il benvenuto assieme alle salmerie con le vivandiere .... anche qualche bivacco sarebbe utile non solo francese ma anche dei suoi avversari.... di ideee noi ne abbiamo ante ora la palla va a Strelets che son sicuro ne saprà far tesoro.... a presto....

Re: PER IL 2021 .... DESIDERI see Strelets' first set



Ciao Luca, in realtà il primo set di Strelets aveva tutti quei personaggi. (Campo dell'Esercito Francese) Ma sono d'accordo che c'è sempre un caso per un set di sostegno non-combattimento. Come se suggerisse un bivacco. Dovrebbe essere prevalentemente personale, cavalli, cani e muli, ecc., e le tende dovrebbero essere lasciate ai produttori che possono produrli a buon mercato; forse in polistirolo. Come Strelets hanno già prodotto il campo francese (Disponibile da Hannants) forse Strelets può aumentare quel set con bavarese, britannico e prussiano.

Hello Luca actually Strelets' first set had all those characters. (French Armies camp) But I agree there is always a case for supporting a non-combat set. Like as you suggest a bivouac set. It would need to be predominately personnel, horses, dogs and mules etc., and the tents should be left to manufacturers who can produce them cheaply; perhaps in polystyrene. As Strelets have already produced the French camp (Available from Hannants) perhaps Strelets can augment that set with Bavarian, British and Prussian.

Re: PER IL 2021 .... DESIDERI see Strelets' first set

I have a very small list - 1812 Russian dragoons in dismounted order.

Re: PER IL 2021 .... DESIDERI see Strelets' first set

It is simply great to see a figures producers coming out with such a waste range of, let me say it...very nice figures.

Why not going completely....out of the Box?
What about MESOAMERICA/CONQUISTADORES? Would love to see Strelets version of it:grinning:

Or...MAORI WARS?...Maoris performing a haka :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: (kidding)

Or..PLAIN WARS?...some ACW figure are usable here and already available, "INJUNS" are missing.

I know these are of "lesser" interest, but dreaming about it is for free. :wink: :sunglasses:

Cheers
Alex
