Welcome to the Strelets Forum.
Please feel free to discuss any aspect of 1/72 scale plastic figures, not simply Strelets.
If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
The Waterloo project is proceeding at pace, with the attention recently on the area East of La Belle Alliance showcasing the four Service Squadrons of Guard cavalry, the Engineers and Marins of the Guard, two new carriages and two companies of the Foot Artillery of the Guard. I hope you like them.
It's a work in progress. There are more 2nd Lancers to come and the whole of the Empress Dragoon Squadron. I'm incredibly grateful to my many collaborators on this project.
There is still quite a lot of snagging to overcome, with the figures better blended into the scenery but it is coming along.

Je suis sous le charme. C'est extraordinaire, fabuleux. Mais alors quel travail, quelle minutie. Bravo à toute l'équipe. Bravo à vous, Général.
Awesome, magic, so inspiring!
Its like watching your dreams fulfilled and all we paint figurines can advert the greatness of this diorama.
Its plenty of museum quality like Siborne’s that I had the opoortunity to admire 20 years ago. but this one has the soul of the soldier in battle in every corner.
By the way, the napoleon carriage was like this one?
Thanks All! Miquel, according to Napoleon's senior carriage driver Napoleon had 11 carriages at Waterloo of which two were captured. One of these burnt in the Madame Tussaud's fire in London before the First World War, the other is at Malmaison. No one knows what happened to the remainder. Nor do we know whether other senior French commanders had carriages during the campaign. Ney did not, but Soult, Jerome, Drouot, D'Erlon, Reille and Lobau may well have.
Wow! What a great work. Very impressive.
Where did you get all those carriages from?
I only got one 20 years ago.
Can't wait to see more.
Thanks Mr Schmitt! One I bought 20 years ago. One is a Minifigs conversion. One is from Franznap and one is scratch built by Liam Flood who is a genius. He has two more in production.
Wow! Splendid work that keeps getting better and better! I hope the next one will be Blenheim, now that we have all these nice Strelets' figures, yes? :wink: :smile:
An amazing piece of art which I hope is saved for future generations to see. It belongs pride of place in a museum once it is all put together.
It tells the story visually while displaying such attention to detail & vast effort on yours & the teams part. Its is simply beautiful.
Its not just the figures, but the terrain itself. The cobbled road with the Guard marching along it is wonderful. Your diorama allows the viewer to picture the scene and even place themselves there.
Sibourne would be proud I am sure.
Very many thanks for your kind comments, they are very motivating!
General Picton, Sire,
I thank you for this great work and that I was allowed to see it here.
This section of the great battle has become just as impressive as the Plancenoit diorama.
Especially the big battery of the Guard is a fantastic picture for me.
If the building here was also created by your father, then please give him great praise for his work.
I'm very impressed again.
And im sure that Captain Siborne would also stand in awe in front of this work.
