Re: Italians on patrol

Excellent work Strelets, but please if you still can do something remove these bersaglieri feathers: by leaving them, you are excluding a fundamental African theatre which is the war in East Africa, since only a very tiny bunch of bersaglieri took part in the defense of Cheren, but no bersaglieri soldier was to be seen in key battles like Amba Alagi.

Cheers,

Ale

Simply excellent stuff. Well done Strelets. Hopefully in future you make Italian Colonial troops and Vichy infantry for North Africa/ Orient. Make us dream.
A very pleasant suprise.I especially like the soldier filling the water bottles - great to see some orginality in a new set.

Totally agree about the inclusion of the Vichy French. Whether North Africa or the Levent they certainly occupied large numbers of allied troops who should have been fighting the axis forces.

A good set for me too. Hoping in a colonial's troops( Lubiana) too

Re: Italians on patrol

Great sculpting and great poses. If plastic figures hold the candle to the masters, this set is going to make it all pop!

Re: Italians on patrol

Nice looking Italians great poses I am looking forward to get my hands on these figures it would nice to have a few more Italian sets as well.:wink:

Re: Italians on patrol

I`ll certainly be buying a couple of boxes of these- a nice selection of poses.
Hopefully more Italians including Libyan and Eritrean Colonial troops are in the pipeline.

Re: Italians on patrol

These chaps are just what I've been waiting for.
Excellent sculptures; useful poses. can't see a camel though.

Re: Italians on patrol

Nice sculpts but the poses look a bit relaxed for being on patrol and the chap with his head bowed looks like he's at a funeral. I'm sure these will be great for diorama makers but I can't see me adding these to my Italian forces.

Re: Italians on patrol

Excellente! This is just what I and many others have been waiting impatiently for for years! Hopefully a set of these guys in combat will soon follow....Avanti Italia!
