Re: US Cavalry Skirmishing

Hi Arlin,

I look forward to reading through all of the links you've provided over the weekend!

All the discussion of carbines and uniforms makes me wish the Strelets Team would produce another sef of US Cavalry Dismounted to go with their Set 1 mounted Cavalry. A good Custers Last Stand by Strelets would be at the top of my wish list.

OK, cheers!

Re: US Cavalry Skirmishing

Yes Arlin, my thanks as well for your resources. So I think it's fair to say that Civil War sets can be used for battles against the Native Americans both during and soon after the war, whereas for later periods sets like Strelets U.S. Cavalry works better. I quite like that set, in my mind it's the best made on the subject. Wouldn't mind seeing set 2!

Colin,

I just want to thank you for initiating this thread. I have had a life-long interest in this aspect of U.S. history and it's refreshing to discover other's interest also.

Hopefully the Strelets Team will continue on with more sets for the Wild West theme. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Cheers!

Thank you Garrison, this has always been a fascinating period for me as well. I always liked to read books and watch films about the Indian Wars between Native Warriors and the Bluecoats when I was a kid. I feel like the Strelets set of US Cavalry is the best made in our scale, and like you I would love to see Strelets add more to this range one day.

Re: US Cavalry Skirmishing

Arlin,

I enjoyed going thru all your references this weekend. Thank you for taking the time to list them out.

The carbines, especially, are a very interesting aspect of the U.S. Cavalry during the 1800's, and I learned alot about them while enjoying this thread.

I look forward to reading more, also as time allows, and I hope Strelets Team continues on with the Wild West theme.

Cheers for now!
