Welcome to the Strelets Forum.
Please feel free to discuss any aspect of 1/72 scale plastic figures, not simply Strelets.
If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
These masters are once again full of detail and character, so 'Thank You'. The four companies of the Gardes du Corps were an important and relatively numerous part of the Maison du Roi, so it is good to see a set of these troops.
Once again, the officers and standard bearer stand out. It will be useful to have the trumpeter as well, although his trumpet appears to be too short. I'm not sure about the man firing his carbine though, not a particularly useful pose for a set of Household cavalry troops.
I'm also noting that the heads and hats of this set seem to be quite large. This will not notice when mounted, but even so something to recognise for future sets?
Now that the Maison du Roi is fully covered, can we have some French Line cavalry please? Plainer uniforms, slightly smaller heads and hats and less 'ornate' hair, mounted on the same horses. And with some of the troops brandishing firearms, the rest with swords. Thanks!
I think that there are no new French cavalry sets - as we have not seen any new masters of them.
Can Strelets confirm it?
I enjoy the new set which we had seen once in a friday threat, but I share also Minuteman´s critique: We are missing still regular french cavalry .... and all austrians too!
Meanwhile I will have lot of fun with Strelets new WSS artillery .... ;-))
Well, only 2 numbers of sets are missing (243 and 244). I understand that it will be used for French and British artillery sets.
