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'm in a bit of a funk. About a month ago I finished converting a regiment each of reiters and mounted arquebusiers for my renaissance armies and now I'm stuck for inspiration. Maybe its a sign that I should take a break for the summer.
To the truly toughest of the tough in their hearts, mon Legionairres, to: Loius, Madpenman, Mike B (! :-)), and Bill, and all the silent forum members, please post your hard earned works here on this forum and share with us your most passionate dreams in the 1/72 scale, whether painted or not.
No excuses mon Leginonarries !!!

I love it!
1) finishing paint a 24 man battallion of highlanders (mix of airfix/exci and Odemars)
2) then doing a 24 man battalion of cacadores. (Odemars)
3) then some french horse artillery (full-dress) Italeri guard horse artillery, with zvezda guns, and head swops with zvezda shakos.
4) Some Odemars Olg Guard grenadiers
Target for all this- 6 weeks (we'll see!)
Complete my re-paint of French Guard foot artillery and French line foot artillery (Airfix and Esci); working also on an advancing line of Russian heavy grenadiers (Zvezda). Then there's the nightly trimming in front of the tv (Strelets has got me going after medievals and Romans!)
I should be ready for the next project by the time I'm 432.
making a diorama 4x8 ft of 18th or 19th cent's, a sort of multipurpose thing that I can use for awi, war of 1812, or nappy. I'm using hirst arts blocks for buildings.
Also going to make a new diorama 16ft by 6ft for a Napoleonic campaign in 2008. I generally game in the summer months and paint through the winter. My curent layout is in its 4th season and has been used for WW11 in Northern Europe.
