Re: Strelets World War I cavalry series

you & me both brother! i have been after HAT for years about their plastic color preferences. unfortunately, people like you & I are in the minority when it comes to the wargamers/painters (who shouldn't care what color plastic figs are made in but have to have everything their way & request neutral colors so the don't have to prime their soldiers 1st!) as far as to who manufacturers listen to! Strelets & Orion have been pretty good about making opposing colors or national/uniform colors. wish others would follow suit!

Re: Re: Strelets World War I cavalry series

There have been a lot of interesting replies! British
and Australian horsemen made several notable charges
in Palestine during World War I - the charge of the
Light Horse at Beersheba comes most quickly to mind.
So sets of these would be very appropriate. And also
Turkish cavalry.

I know there was quite a bit of fighting between the
Turks and Russians during World War I, but how much
of it involved cavalry I can't say.

Hat is planning on a set to represent the Australian
Light Horse, but it will have only a few poses, so it
won't be as useful as it could be. There are still a
lot of World War I sets that could be made. The war
was an artillery war, so how about some sets of the
bigger guns?

For all of Stelets World War I cavalry sets a second set with dismounted soldiers would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Strelets World War I cavalry series

Will the Britsh be early war (Peak Caps) suitable for Mons, Le Cateau and Nery or Late War (Steel Helmets) suitable for Cambrai, Amiens and 2nd Le Cateau?
