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.
Allan thats my thoughs exactly.
Poses full of character like the drinking & smoking pipe etc are very nice and certainly different, but in a box of just 12 men/horses, if theres 2 or 3 such poses, plus the couple of carbine poses and then the incorrect flagbearer, you are then not left with many proper poses for building up units.
For collectors its great but for wargamers or battlefield diorama builders, it doesnt help for building up regiments.
We have had infantry sets at ease, so put the relaxing trooper poses in a set like that but for cavalry. Keep the reserve/standing cavalry sets for troopers holding sabres drawn at ready.....a cavalry version of the infantry order/shoulder arms sets if you like.
The lancer sets are fine with the way they hold their lances currently.

Your problems is the opposite of mine, I need more of the civilians. There should be some way of bartering what we don't need like the Streltsi you see on eBay from time to time.
I bartered with other collectors to build consistent units of Streltsi, so it should be possible.
Hi, Yes, great figures, though if I was collecting Russian Napoleonic's, having a large infantry flag on cavalry would be a concern, especially if I was purchasing several sets. I was wondering if it would be possible with these specialist figs if several separate arms could be added, holding things like a trumpet, flag, telescope, pistol, sword or just pointing. The flag could be just a pole, to allow for paper flags, as flags are often so complicated to convincingly paint. At least this would give a lot more flexibility, so as to avoid lots of redundant figures. Perhaps it could be a universal accessory arm sprue that could be used for several sets and nationalities, to reduce production costs, assuming that the uniforms are similar. I know this would likely be very helpful for war gamers. Anyways, so what do you think??
Wonderful hussars and civilians! I will buy certainly some boxes And I like your configuration of poses and themes in this set. Please continue!
My only wish: Please in future better and new sculpted horses than these quite small skull-horses.
