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.
Great Northern war
For the moment we miss some essentially sets for the period.
*Russia Line Infantry
*Swedish Guards (MUST INCLUDE PIKE!!!)and mounted General
*Hoppefully Swedish cavalery with karpus headgear
With present set its hard to set up usefull battels.
Otherwise we can hope Zvezda put out some sets...
An interesting list, and all those things would be great. Of course a wishlist is just that, and does not have to be realistic, but Valdemar are promising some Teutonics (OK so only expensive single figures) and peasant medievals. It would be good to see sailors and harbour for the Zvezda ships, but they have yet to make Greek or Roman sailors, so I wouldnt hold your breath. The other real prospect for you is MiniArt, who might well do defenders as they have done attackers.
As to my wishlist, it is longer than anyone could possibly bear, but I would like to see existing themes developed before launching into new ones. So AWI cavalry and artillery, a lot more GNW and SYW and ever more Crimean sets. Still at the current rate next year will probably deliver several of my most wanted - this year did
All the HaT Nordenfeld/Gatling guns with the Camelery and the Light Horse would be a nice start.
Medieval peasants definitely!!! My poor old Airfix Robin Hood guys need some relief! They've seen service from Scandinavia to Outremer. I also don't need any more maid Marions riding around the country side.
I wish middle age light cavalry. There isn't any set of them, however they were numerous in every middle age armies!
Do you agree???
My favourite Wishlist
- Medieval Peasants ca. 1400
- Medieval Seaman
- Hussite Wars both Sides
- Medieval City-people
I wish you a merry Christmas...
I'll settle for any cavalry set appropriate for western Europe from ca. 1547 to 1620. Reiters, Stradiots, Genettes, Gendarmes, DemiLancers-whatever.
I'd also love for HaT to finalize its French WWI artillery set, and perhaps Strelets could expand its WWI cavalry line to include the French, including perhaps some Spahis.
As I guess that everyone else's wishlist will come first, may be some other wishes can be fulfilled later. Plus I agree with all the wishes of you guys anyway :-)
How about royal courts of the French, British, Austrian, Prussian and Russian kings/emperors? Mme de Pompadour, Voltaire, J.S. Bach, Maria Theresia, Lord Mountbatten....no doubt that we should get regular troops first, but if we're gona continue to buy boxes for the next 50 years or so, we should also get lot's more personality figures. Strelets is the perfect company to do this.
- Mid 19th century Hungarian revolutionary troops to match the Crimean russians on the battlefields of Transylvania in 1849.
- Russian dragoons and uhlans for the Crimea.
- Any kind of Mexican troops from the 1860s for the French intervention.
- Latin-american insurgents for Mexican wars and the Triple Alliance War.
A Russian Tsar's coronation scene... or
The sets needed to complete the Crimean War series... or...
Medieval Russian peasants to fight alongside the Novgorod militia and Prince Alexander's druzhina.
American War of Independence/American Revolution.
More nice Civil War sets.
French and Indian war.
Some decent Plains sets. (The first Strelets set was a very nice start. Just please continue)
Early 18th Century California
All that for a start would be nice.
royal courts of the French, British, Austrian, Prussian and Russian kings/emperors is nice and what about mob attacking Bastille
With about 100 sets per year that are released recently, it looks that the producers soon will have a difficulty with finding interesting opportunities.
Not so. The manufacturers can re-work & release the not-so-good-sets.
Naming no names....
Oh well, looking down sheepishly, as you asked if that was all, I'd really, really like it, if you were to release Medieval Russian peasants, if you would make a figure of Buslai swinging a long pole, Vasilissa with her sword hunting down the evil organist, Gavrilo Oleksich watching Alexander's back, and Mikula leading the peasants against the Crusaders.
That would be all I could possibly ask for.
Hugs for the great work you've done so far!
