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.
Waiting anxiously for the release of the above .... lots of German/Russian Cav ... what about the poor old Brits! Cavalry required urgently for the breakout on the Western Front!!
HaT have posted pictures of test sprues on their site of the Australian Light Horse and they look superb.
With Strelets WW1 cavalry we can at last cover some of the aspects of the so called Great War.
We definitely need Strelets to produce French and British Cavalry for the early Western Front.
My great grandfather served on the western front as a cavalryman, but I not sure with which unit and how much action he saw. I have a vague memory of him being in the dragoons.
I agree that early war cav are required - but so are late war: particularly for the 100 days from August - November 1918. By that stage British use of combined arms was becoming very sophisticated after the bloody learning curves of 1916-1917. My understanding is the cavalry (although more mounted infantry in the true sense) were being used in a role that could almost be described as the same as(very) short range paratroopers - with lightly armed mounted units taking and holding a position until the PBI etc moved up.
Now I have a lot of Russian cavalry in my collection but I would be happy to get early Austrian cavalry with colourful blue uniforms. I personally would be happy to complete one range before starting on the next.
But cavalry for the western front and the colonial theaters are very important. The ALH needs enemies and we have no Turkish cavalry.
Hey Hank, Turkish cavalry for the Crimean war is missing too
