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.
Very good! Great conversions! Were did you get the dead and wounded from? I always thought that the best conversions are those were you have difficulties guessing from which figures they are made and that's definitely the case here!
Some very good conversions in that lot.
Just adding to the compliments. Excellent presentation of a firing line with lots of 'action' and plenty going on in the background!!
A very realistic looking firing line with the casualties and walking wounded.
And very nice painting of an interesting looking unit. Grey and red is an unusual combination but they still look rather splendid.
This is a splendid addition to the contributions section and almost make me reach for the frock coat and wig, ( for a bit of method painting).
In addition to the realistic firing line I was quite taken with the backdrop of smoke and gun flashes.
Thank you for sharing.
Thanks all for yours friendly comments which I presume very precious because I have seen already the very well painted armies from some of yours.
I believe that most of the french regiments wore light grey uniforms and not white till the end of WSS, The grey of my first regiment became unfortunatly a little bit darker as intented.
the conversions were made with all existing french infantry sets of Strelets - also with these which had too short musquets which were substitute with cut plastic broomsticks.
The dead or lying ones are mostly made with greenstuff: at first an imprint of a Strelets figure in a bluestuff-mold which than were filled with greenstuff. Sometimes arms and legs were still changed to create more variety.
The walking conversions were made directly with existing Strelets figures .... and partly greenstuff substitute- or supplement-parts. The most difficult part was here the very hard plastic material of Strelets which made cuts and changes very labor intensive.
And Minuteman you are absolutly right that these figures are the first ones for my bigger Blenheim-diorama-project .... which will need still much time to paint and build. I was speechless when I saw your already well painted big army. I wish that I would have painted already a third of them.
