I believe after reinspection that Flambeau is correct and that this blue plastic set is the WSS Bavarians - not Austrians as I originally surmised. The helmet detail and head postures match the Bavarians as I look at the ‘masters’ shown on the Strelets web site for both of these sets. I’m still looking for - and anxious - for all the new figures hinted at.
Yes, Strelets Team - Bravo! Your Post Card from Ukraine this week is such a beautiful study in Toy Soldier perfection. Wonderful sculpting, and perfect casting in blue. I like to buy your soldiers and take them right out of the box and re-enact battles with them immediately. This is my life-long childhood pleasure that remains unchanged. So, please keep up your excellent colors quality for guys like me.
P.S. Oh yeah, and by the way, I also always enjoy the excellent painting skills of your other customers- especially that "Deserty Guy." :wink: :palm_tree:
