Dear Strelets: It's November!

Hello Strelets, just wondering if we can expect to see all these sets in the shops soon:

075 British Cavalry
114 British Cavalry (Late)
M056 British Infantry in Gasmasks

and the other WW1 sets scheduled for a November 2010 release.

I hope everything is going well.

Thanks

Re: Dear Strelets: It's November!

Hello,
WWI Belgian troops infantry cavalry and artillery, biginning of hostilities
WWI french cavalry early war
WWI Allied and german etat major

Re: Dear Strelets: It's November!

I think PDA was asking when sets that are already promised will be available, rather than suggesting sets that he would like to see.

Although I heartily agree with your suggestions.

Re: Dear Strelets: It's November!

hannants order dilema may confuse distribution. it sure has confused me enough so i will wait to see figures for sale on ebay.

top of list , turkish artillerie hurry up and somehow make a limber and transport cart set to redeem yourself.
the pressure is on !!!

Half way through November, and no sign of them yet.

If these were Americans I'd expect them to be late.

Three quarters through November, and, no sign of them yet.

It's going to be a narrow squeak!

Re: Dear Strelets: It's November!

IIRC, the cavalry usually arrive at the last minute.

Re: Dear Strelets: It's November!

If you mean the 7th Cavalry and General Custer, they were late...

...as in, "The late General Custer"

"Last minute" took on a whole new meaning for them.

Re: Dear Strelets: It's November!

Four days to go.

Re: Dear Strelets: It's November!

Just one day left

... and then comes December...

Unless I'm very much mistaken it's not like we're talking about necessities of life or some essential goods here. A countdown? Seriously?
Strelets will deliver as always and of course I'm looking forward to this 14 sets & the already announced ones for spring. Especially the WWII Finns & Romanians are excellent news for me! Strelets will take the time they need to do the job and that's pretty it.

A little patience and less brash & panicmongering attitude could definitely help to get through the waiting time though!

In the meantime one could waste some time with the latest 4-poses rubber sets from another manufacturer or concentrate on the latest Revell, IBG, Dragon, Maco, UniModel, Attack, MAC, HobbyBoss, ACE, Zvezda, Waterloo 1815, Caesar, Orion, Pegasus, MK72, Italeri or Valdemar kits & sets... .
But it seems easier to moan about a little delay instead.

We're truly spoilt by the enormous output of hobby related products over the last decade (some call it the "golden age") and we still shout for more... .

To tell the truth I'm as anxious as anyone else for these great looking RTW & WWI sets, but I'm not without heebs of other sets & kits which are waiting for me on the shelf.

Best Regards

Re: ... and then comes December...

Well, that should have secured Peter an invitation to the Strelets Christmas party.

Talking of which; perhaps Strelets are still using the Julian calendar.

Could you point out to me, oh great one, where I was 'panicmongering' or 'moaning'. Brash, maybe, but that's a matter of opinion, so I'll accept that. But moaning and panicmongering? You certainly have a flair for the dramatic.

My very best regards to you,
PDA

Re: ... and then comes December...

Time's up.

Re: ... and then comes December...

Well, there's still a couple of hours of November left here, in my little part of The World, but I think Hannants, your good self, and the rest of Europe, are already in December.

I've noticed that Strelets haven't been on the forum much lately. I think they are probably out the back, putting little toy soldiers in small boxes to be shipped off. They probably got so busy that they lost track of time.

It's a good job they're only little, toy, plastic soldiers, and not something essential like beer and curry.

Re: ... and then comes December...

Gentlemen,

the shipment from the Ukraine is planned for 9/12/2010. In about one week time they should be in the UK.
Please be guided accordingly.
Best regards,

Strelets

Re: ... and then comes December...

Dear Strelets,

Thank you for your reply. It is much appreciated. However, I fear you are being optimistic. We have 3 inches of snow in the UK, and the transport of goods is therefore at a standstill. I don't expect you have to cope with anything quite like it in Ukraine.

Re: ... and then comes December...

Dear Warwick Hunt,

don't worry, the truck will be Ukrainean, therefore no delays will take place. Snow is not a big deal after all unless it's a wrong type of snow, of course !

Best regards,

Strelets

Re: ... and then comes December...

strelets please were are french gasmask

Oh. You've heard about that, have you?

Re: ... and then comes December...

Yeah, it's a masterpiece.

Re: ... and then comes December...

Thanks, Strelets.

I often wonder how much of British Culture gets translated. "Quite a lot" is obviously the answer in Ukraine. So, thank you, also, for that insight.

Re: ... and then comes December...

Dear PDA,

not quite so. After 13 years in the UK it doesn't require much of a translation .

Best regards,

Strelets

Re: ... and then comes December...

please french in gasmask

Re: ... and then comes December...

*bump*

Dear Strelets - when are we going to get a view of the masters for the French Infantry in Gas Masks?

Re: ... and then comes December...
