Nice, but not very deserty.....
And no Camels!

But wonderful to hear the skirl o' the pipes in that video clip

Re: Friday Mail

Great looking figures, and pleasingly great-coated (so not deserty...although I do know that it gets cold in the desert at night).

The character in these figures is marvellous: two different musketeers, one 'old and grumpy', the other (an NCO?, from the position of his musket on the right shoulder) leaner and 'less grumpy'. The officers are also excellent.

Have a good weekend :grinning:

PS: Nice musical festivities, and always good to hear the bagpipes. I imagine that this is the sort of celebration that regularly occurs at Strelets Headquarters?!!

Re: Friday Mail

Assuming it is one set(can't wait to get my hands on it) I would say the shako of the officer seems to suggest another grenadier set. But, some knifework can turn them into musketeers as well.

Re: Friday Mail

Dear Strelets Team,
before returning to the characteristically never-ending wish lists, it seems a good opportunity to explicitly thank you for providing these (and so many other) marvellous figures.

Thanks to your outstanding work the possibilities of adequately depicting the extremely important battles of the decisive 1812-15 campaigns improved dramatically.

Thank you very much for this and please keep up your great work! :+1: :slightly_smiling_face:

Re: Friday Mail

I wholeheartedly agree with PtG. Thank you Strelets!

Re: Friday Mail

Hello,
these masters of Russian grenadiers are again wonderful.
I gues you people at Streletz know, but progression in sculpting is now at a limit. When I look at the injected moulded figures of available sets, some of the fine detail is not impressed any longer. See for example the tiny holes on the leather straps.
So at some stage improvement can only come by improving the mould making and moulding process. No idea whether this is commercially viable, but, of course, we all would like to see our figures just like your masters when we admire them through the magnifying glass. :)
Have a nice day
Michael
