Re: Usual stuff in unusual times

Great to hear from you.

We are sorry about your situation.

We dont deserve our weak politics against a paranoic leader.

I wish you and Strelets all the best.

Re: Usual stuff in unusual times

Bravo Strelets👏🏼 Hearing from you is phenomenal! And with a Friday tease as well? Usual stuff in unusual times indeed. Stay safe!

Re: Usual stuff in unusual times

Strelets...Brave, brave people you are!!!
All my best wishes to you and all your loved beings
We all are with you

Re: Usual stuff in unusual times

Well done, Strelets team!

Usual stuff in very unusual times...as the saying went when Britain was under attack in 1940/41, 'Stay calm and carry on'.

Great figures, looking like a very welcome set of 1815 British infantry 'in square'.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.

Re: Usual stuff in unusual times

Not the least bit deserty, but very good none the less.

Re: Usual stuff in unusual times

The kneeling pose is not right, he cannot hold that position for long, it needs to be more "relaxed" so if required he can stay in position for some time.

Re: Usual stuff in unusual times

Yes i agree his arms need to be closer to his body, not out stretched. But at least theres no foradge caps and they have bayonets fixed.

Good point. He does look a bit awkward. I assume (& hope) there are other kneeling poses in this set which may look more natural.
Another thing I notice is he seems a little bit "large" compared to his pals who are standing.....moreso the middle pose shown. Or is it the middle standing pose is short?? But as mentioned, at least they have their bayonets fixed and so far no forage caps to be seen!

Then again, lets just hope that the staff at Strelets get the opportunity to even make the set anyway, and a great many more sets in the future.
I am certainly so glad to see the glimpse of a set I have really, really wanted, but right now, my thoughts are more concerned with those who contribute to its manufacture.

Again, they have my very best sincere wishes. Stay safe & look after yourselves Strelets.

Re: Usual stuff in unusual times

The butt of the musket needs to be a lot closer to the knee on the ground, and the kneeling guys knee (upright) is higher than the standing guys, now as we are all different heights that is ok for some , but not all poses.

Stay safe dear friends
