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.
Well, it's the first Friday of the new month according to my calendar, and with the lockdown/pandemic still affecting many of us it's surely an opportunity to ask....What might Strelets have to offer us this week/month??:slightly_smiling_face:
The recent postings of War of Spanish Succession dragoons, cavalrymen and artillery have been superb. There has been enough sand flying around on the Contributions page to create our own seaside beach or sand-dune. So perhaps now is the time for something new, and....Napoleonic perhaps??
"So perhaps now is the time for something new, and....Napoleonic perhaps??"
There has been nothing new and deserty for some time.......just saying
Hi everyone I hope you are all well and a belated Happy New Year,
I think more Napoleonic's would be great perhaps some sets of Napoleonic gun crews for each nation.
Can i suggest a set for each nations and that it have 44 different figures(loading and firing) in it, that way we get a wide selection of crew poses in a single box, and we can either uses old guns that we have lying about or you could follow up with a box of guns with a standard carriage and multiple barrels and a few barrels and other accessories
I am sure we are all fed up with gun crews all being identical I think this format would fly off the shelves as it would allow us to have unique gun battery's.
So I was wondering if strelets have any plans for Napoleonic artillery this year and would this suggestion be up for consideration and I was wondering what all on the forum think of the 44 figure box idea.
Im all for Napoleonic Artillery sets in a style as mentioned by Allan and Minuteman. I think having guns in a box with crew is the way to go though for same reasons as Minuteman suggested.
So shall we start with a proper set of post 1812 French Foot Artillery?!
Here we are on Magic Friday... however it will be, it will be a treat for us. Maybe a surprise list... the unexpected. The Turks for Gallipoli or the Anzacs... the US 1812 rangers... or the Napoleonics... Wonder. Nice wait
I agree Zappa: Gallipoli, 1812 Rangers or Napoleonics would been great! Although some WSS will been greeted surely too ....
Very nice indeed! Thank you Strelets.
Have a good weekend:slightly_smiling_face:
Thanks a lot.
The trumpeter is very nice, but it´s a pity, that the flag and pole of the flagbearer seems me quite oversized for cavalry.
Fabulous! Thank you.
great looking riders, so when will we be seeing release of all the lovely WSS cavalry sets and proposed gunners in UK, needed urgently as running out of figures to paint for my favourite period !!!
congrats to sculptors
you all stay safe out there
cheers Old John
Really goods. Have a nice weekend Strelets and you all friends.
You have delivered another Friday delight with two more fine looking masters for your early 18th century range.
Thank you, James
Sorry, but I have to come back to that WSS dragoon horse holder picture:.
Where are the horses' stirrups? I can't see them. You won't forget them, will you? (Even Zvezda did - http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=1328 - the last horse, meant to go with the dismounted firing dragoon ... :smirk: )
The attachment of the breast collar to the saddle girths looks a bit strange to me as well. Just in case, Garsault's "Le Nouveau Parfait Maréchal" may help. It was published a little later than our period (1741) but overall is valid for the WSS era as well.
To expand on my previous comment, I wonder if there will be any horses in the Dismounted Dragoons set or if it will just contain dismounted Dragoons and the intention is to share horses with the mounted set (hence the missing stirrups).
If the dismounted set is to contain horses then how many? Horses take up a lot of sprue space. A full complement of horses might be good for wargamers but would mean a small set of figures. A couple of horses with the horse holder might be fine for dioramists but leave the gamers short. If the intention is to share the horses between the mounted and dismounted sets there is the question of how to make it work with based horses. Mounted infantry type sets pose quite a dilemma for manufacturers.
Awesome piece of content on a stirrup. Thanks a lot for taking time and update us about it.
