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 presume the film is of the 1876 April uprising in Bulgaria. Do the later scenes show the massacres of Christians or the massacres of Muslims in the prelude? The massacres of Christians had a big impact on public and political opinion in Western Europe at the time. I suggested some dismounted Bashis to go with the existing set a while ago. A Turkish /Ottoman infantry set for the RTW would be a very obvious and useful set for this and other scenarios of this period.
I have given up on this. If Strelets don't make any Turkish infantry so be it then I am not interested in buying their RTW sets except for those I can modify for other periods. I could see this coming months ago. I have better things to do than pester people to produce things they don't want to.
this is becoming more of a ball game ,with uncertainty of who teh field players will be when release comes. some of us have paid teh ticket but we dont pick teh teams.
wow nice work mr phersu,i guess some are bard for particular ceremonys like before a battel.tehn others used to announce the ferld play,call to archers, cavalry(horn guy look ood on a horse also )auxilliaries etc but hope it is not th devils tune they are playing.
David, Same thought, I'm looking at making one or two Turkish infantry and casting in metal.
is it too much to ask SR to at least put the same turks in an RTW big set with rouskie command.that would be okay.
maybe you want to consider to ask zvezda that question also.
but you ARE aware of russian history you know how many russo turk war there were. Besides Who wants a collection with no enemy ?...How can it be a colelction with no opponnent ? NOT ATTRACTIVE.
Two very good points. Turkey and the Ottoman Empire have long been an important power in their own right, for many centuries and only a few sets from all manufactures to cover them. Some Infantry to go with the crusade era cavalry is much desired, with Byzantine opponents too. I'd personally like to see some more WWI Ottoman forces and some suitable British and Australian Opponents. Lawrence of Arabia and the Gallipoli campaigns would be a good start. I’d also like to see Strelets’ make take a good run at some Janissaries too.
