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.
I've just seen the pictures fom your New MINI set # 2
How cruel your are.
According to their dress and the bows, it seems they could be English bowmen from the Hundred years war.
Please STRELETS, Show us the real pictures!!
Or may be...
They could be Willam the Conqueror's bowmen?
Am I dreaming?
I don't think these are 100 years war longbowmen, for the bows are to short. I hope pat is right
hadn't thought about Norman bowmen, good call Pat. Few crossbows would make them usable over a longer period.
They're obviously William the *******'s bowmen. Or Orcs. They're certainly an out-of-focus fire-team.
It seems we have to display Hastings for a second time in two or three years with a lot of new figures
I had the same feeling about your huge diorama just after looking the new masters!!! Hastings II: the Revenge of the Houscarls
what's about making it in Battle on the day of the battle? People come there from all over the UK.
you complain about the quality of the sets, i complain because realising somany new sets strelets wants to bankropt me
Now with so many strelets sets I have to quit army and find better paid job.
This brings me to the question if these figures are e made in the same style as the usual Strelets figures (plastic/price) or if they will be different?
When I understood it right, the usually moulds of Strelets are good for around 5-6000 sprues. With
four sprues in the box, are there than just 1500
the Mini sets will be bit cheaper.
good to hear that. My main problem is, if I have to hurry to buy several sets of them before they are sold out?
Assuming a mold costs x then to produce a normal set 4 different molds are required. If each mold lasts 5,000 uses then 5,000 boxes of product needs 4 molds = 1 mold / 1,250 boxes.
Now the mini series require 1 mold and this mold lasts for 5,000 uses too. However, at 4 uses per box, only 1,250 boxes can be produced before another mold is needed.
So whichever wat you look at it, the costs of 1 mold need to be amortised over 1,250 boxes regardless of whether the box is standard or mini.
