Welcome to the Strelets Forum.

If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
The SYW has been arguably labelled the First World War. Apart from the conflict in Europe, war in the Americas, Africa & India (Plassey anyone?) make it an ideal field for any manufacturer with delusions of grandeur.
I, myself, am only interested in the European theatre where there are many gaps (Russian army???) but I know many, many others would love to dabble in the SYW fought elsewhere.
So. When are you starting, Strelets?
While waiting for a manufacturer to expand the available ranges, the only way forward is conversions. The simplest are paint conversions, I have recently acquired some Airfix Hussars to fight for Austria. Also the Napoleonic Saxon Cuirassiers are only a hat swop from fighting in both main armies. I also produced a regiment of British Light Dragoons via conversions before Italeri released theirs. Prussian artillery would be greatly appreciated.
I myself am more interested in the North American theater. All the frontier battles along the Canadian border are so fascinating. I would someday love to make a diorama series on the war with Fort Duquesne, Fort William Henry, Carillon, Louisbourg… I could go on. It’s a very interesting theater of the war to say the least.
I'm with you Asher. (By the way, you did receive my response to your email with the pdf that I sent 'by reply' all those weeks ago?)
The French & Indian War (La guerre de la Conquête) is a fascinating period. So interesting to read about and to recreate on the tabletop. Lots of different 'troops', albeit all on foot, numerous battles around the 'border' of the thirteen colonies and New France. Terrain, terrain and more terrain. As Peter Berry put it in his excellent Ranger! rules 'most of the tabletops is forest, with a few clear areas'. Makes for a wonderful campaign or series of linked battles.
