Question to Strelets about Roman Cavalry and WWI Infantry

Dear Strelets,

Do you have plans to make Roman cavalry to go along with your infantry sets?

Would you consider making decent WWI Austrian, Italian, and Russian infantry? I don't care for the current sets that are out.

Thanks,
Scott

Re: Question to Strelets about Roman Cavalry and WWI Infantry

I would like to second the call for some adequate WW I infantry sets! Russians, Austrians, Turks, Italians, Anzacs, Serbians & Montenegriens - the available sets from Hät and Waterloo 1815 are far from depicting that armies/subjects in a reasonable manner!
And Strelets did a nice job with their WW I cavalry already, so why not adding some infantry sets to finally have some good figures for the eastern front, italian front, balkan front, osmanian campaigns (Dardanelles, Middle east, ...)?
Greetings

Re: Re Question to Strelets WWI Infantry

Yes! I agree that it is a good time for the S*R Team to begin producing some nice WWI Infantry sets to go along with their wonderful Cavalry sets.

I don't know about others, but I would even be happy with S*R-Mini Sets, even for Infantry, especially if it could mean more Colonial, Askari, Italians, and other armies could be made. Then, maybe, one nice set of "High Command" for each major group in the appropriate colors.

Just ideas - Thanks for listening!

Re: Re: Re Question to Strelets WWI Infantry

There has only been a slight scratch on the surface of the vast WWI potential. There realy isn't much out there compared to WWII or most other periods of time except maybe the renesaince.

Just to do the three basic combat arms for all of the major players, lets say France, the Britsh Empire, The German Empire, Austro-Hungarian empire, The Ottaman Empire, Russia and the USA is is 24 sets. Maybe Italy too and that would make 27. As in WWII, in WWI, for many like France and Germany but also others, there is a late and early war look. The British would warrent Highlander units, Indian units and Australians. All of them will also need chemical warfar gear. The area of vehicles has barly been tackeled by the industry. Then there are all of the significant other nations and colonial troops.

WWI is huge. I love Strelets and I love Hat too. I'm not so sure about Ehmar but I'm still trying to get them all. We need to get Zvezda and some others in on this too

Strelets, are you out there?

Your ww1 cavalry sets are fantastic. Please consider ww1 infantry.
