Re: Why only the one?

Yes, very good recommendations, indeed!

In fact, for a Custer's Last Stand theme, Strelets has already made 2 General Custer mounted and dismounted poses in their ACW Staff sets. Plus there is a really nice officer looking through his binoculars in the ACW Skirmishing set. And of course the Set 041 Wild West U.S. Cavalry mounted set. These make for a nice beginning to this theme. Even 3 shooting carbines from their saddles with one hand. Very original and appropriate here.

I'd like to see Strelets make add-on sets of Wild West U.S. Cavalry with dismounted poses shooting both pistols and carbines. A horse holder for those in a firing line or early dismounted defensive poses on Custer Hill. Custer's Troopers didn't carry along sabres so no need to waste details on this, but have really nice shooting poses. And at least one downed horse with his Trooper firing from behind it.

Indians, please, and don't forget some nice Apaches, too for those wars.

Already a great beginning for the Wild West theme, Strelets. Please add to it!

Re: Why only the one?

I'd enthusiastically concur with the calls for Plains Wars/Apache Wars sets of both cavalry and Indians. Dismounted, skirmishing cavalry in campaign hats and warriors both mounted and on foot would be great.

Re: Why only the one?

I agree with all of you - Mr. Strelets we need this. By the way, Waterloo 1815 will be releasing a 1/72 scale version of their beautiful 1/32 Custer's Last Stand set soon (hopefully in 2022) - and note it's marked set #1 so more to follow...
