Re: WWI swashbucklers

"The best he could be is representing somebody who has gone insane and wishes for a quick death from a German sniper."

If he did survive he would probarbly be court martialled for disobeying orders, indeed all insignia denoting rank was minimised to prevent not just officers but non coms from becoming sniper fodder...


Strelets French Inf and Airfix

Hi Bill, to answer your question, the Strelets French are bigger and bulkier then the Airfix French. Interestingly, the Strelets British figures seem just slightly smaller than the usual Strelets product. I really love their olive drab colour. For now my Strelets French and Brits are battling Caesar 's WWI Germans, however, I look forward to buying all the figures for this range from Strelets. Personally, while I love Strelets figures, I don't like to mix them with those of other manufacturers.
Regarding the officer figure with the sword, one of the things I especially like about Strelets is the action packed poses and theatrical feel to some figures - for me this adds excitment to the figures. I have no idea whether it is accurate or not, and I don't care, as it looks good to me (but that is just my taste!)
