Great! The horse and figures are excellent.
A Happy Christmas to all at Strelets...and Forum Members too!
As a horseman, I still think the horses neck and head dont look quite right in terms of proportion to the horses body. Not as bad as the Nap Prussian cavalry, but still not quite right.
Remember a horse needs to comfortably be able lean down to graze without the need to bend its knees!
Otherwise a nice sculpt.
That little bit of (i hope) constructive criticism aside, the pose idea itself is fantastic and quite unique, neighing or perhaps even yawning. I quite like that idea, creating the horses acting like they might in real life. Wonder if anyone could make a set with maybe a horse or two turning its head/neck to the side, maybe in a set of cavalry stood still awaiting orders?? That would be quite realistic & look great. Afterall they dont just stand motionless facing front.
Cavalrymen look good.
And yes Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays & a Happy (and hopefully less eventful!!) New Year to all.
Stay safe everyone.
"horse needs to comfortably be able lean down to graze without the need to bend its knees"
There seems to be no problem with that.
Now that horse is perfect!!! That really is top drawer scultping!!
Well done Strelets!
Excellent looking figures and even better news that your latest offerings are on their way!
Thanks for your continued top quality and regular output.
British dragoons in hats - now that's more like it!
This post chain is horse approved. :racehorse:
Lovely... looking forward to anything related to WSS, as in my opinion, the sculptor really nailed the feel of this period.
That may depend on what is in the pipe....
may i add my compliments to the Strelets team on these superb sculpts of WSS cavalry figures, the pipe smoker looks great
any idea of when these will be available in UK??
best wishes to all out there for a Great Xmas and a very Happy New Year
cheers Old John
All going well, in 2021.
"Could this be a set of British dragoons 'at ease'"
I like your dry humour ... and still more your wonderful miniatures!
Many thanks for all new figures which let me hope to see still more WSS sets.
Stay safe all + have calm days with your families
