If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
in anticipation of Russian Christmas we submit your attention few new masters:
Superb, superb, superb.
These are grenadiers. Looking forward to the marching and attacking versions.
Really something to look forward to. Great subjects and nice sculpts. I've long reflected that over the years I've gathered many, many loading and shooting poses (though looking at some of them and comparing them with recent offerings from various sources they now seem a bit crude) - but for Napoleonic warfare I really needed more troops in formation poses. That need/desire is being fulfilled in spades. Thank you for your endeavors.
First: Happy Orthodox Xmas to You!!
Second:nice figs...I hope to see every napoleonic sets in attack and marcing too.
Tirth: why every producer make only russian granadiers and did not the line inf.?
I really like these figures is the no end to the great sets you are releasing in the forthcoming year I am losing count of the sets I must have this year & its only January.
Strelets, don't forget the band... :wink:
And if you need more information about Russian bands of the Napoleonic era, this is a start:
And for those who don't know how the music they played sounded, just two examples, played according to the original scores (they are from the early 19th century Russian collection of army marches, arranged or composed by the director of the Russian Imperial Guard bands, Anton Doerfeldt (1781-1829). The Prussians adopted them from 1817 on...) :
This set looks promising I do hope to see action poses..and in summer uniform,too....
Fantastic looking figures, very nice sculpting and good detail.
Great to see that Strelets pays more attention to the major belligerents of the napoleonic wars now. Austrians, Russians & Prussians. Will buy in numbers!
We wish a very happy & save orthodox christmas season to the Strelets team, their families and all participating readers.
