An excellent choice. I always like support equipment.
In my wargame rules troops with field kitchens are less likely to run away and more likely to rally if they do.
Troops gotta eat.

A very imaginative set which will, I am sure, appear in all sorts of dioramas. As mentioned above, this set also has a function in some wargames, so very useful all round.
Will this be the start of a small but well-prepared and delicately-seasoned 'culinary' range by Strelets? A couple of Napoleonic sets perhaps, a re-make of the iconic French Camp set?
I'll also raise the request/suggestion again of a C18th camp/baggage park set. A wagon or two, camp followers, traders, pedlars, sutlers and a few 'at ease' soldiers + barrels, maybe a tent etc etc. Very useful !!
Field hospitals would be another subject I would add to this "behind the lines" idea.
All this miniature warfare yet nowhere for the casualties to go!!!! There was a little bit of one in the old French camp set, but a dedicated set in plastic for various eras would be perfect! Also give the sculptors an excuse to show off some of that artistic flair eh?!
All these wounded we are seeing included in sets have got to go somewhere!!!! Surgeons, orderlys stretcher bearers etc. Maybe a regimental surgeon/doctor in full uniform overseeing it all?
Besides, some of that food being prepared might give someone a dodgy tummy!!!!
The Helmets are the obstacle when looking to use these guys outside of the Western front prior to 1916, my first thought was can I use them with the FFL and most poses work with a little bit of green stuff, they are a must buy even though I have parted with most WW1 stuff, Strelets must be encouraged to be different.
Good looking set, Alan just change the heads (or hats)... However I dont think some would work like the bread guys kinda specific to the western front, but would with some other piece of gear instead...
Likely one I will buy :wink:
Highly original and further evidence of Strelets dominance in the hobby
Hopefully the first in a range of field kitchen sets for both World Wars!
I've been hoping someone would produce companions to your French Camp set - I think I was able to get three or four of those over the years. This looks to be a great set - I hope to see more like his in several eras.
Great figures! Very well chosen poses and a unique set. I like the idea of a field hospital.
I watched ANZAC Girls on Amazon Prime. A great series about WWI Anzac nurses at Gallipoli and
the Western Front.
Well blow Me down!
Just the other week I was joking about the possibility of a field kitchen set and voila!
Given this newfound power of prediction you will forgive me if I am unreachable for a little while,I’m going off to concentrate on next weeks lottery numbers...:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
