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.
I believed, believed ... That WSS cannot be forgotten. Awesome miniature, Strelets, bravo!
At least 10 boxes...lots of these boys at Blenheim!
What a great looking cavalryman! I really like the look of him. He has that "heavy cavalry" look about him that is missing in other cuirassier type sets dotted around.
He has an impressive sword....... 😮 ok that just sounded wrong!!😂
Even though I know these boys to be part of the WSS range, I still cant get ECW out of my head everytime I see these figs!!
I am claiming credit for these as the first person to ask for them on the forum.
Thank you Strelets. You listen to us. You are awesome.
When it comes to ideas for sets, they do indeed listen. 👍
How great to see another of these lovely masters. I am recalling two figures 'in attack', in hat and now lobster pot, and also some earlier ones you showed to us who were less active—so am beginning to wonder if there are two groups of Austrian/Imperial cuirassiers in your pipeline?
Graham, the re- quote from Strelets is all yours for sure, but these have been spoken (written) about all year (at least)! You are dead right though about a buying spree. I'm looking to the east, while more here will be focussed on the Rhine, Italy or Spain. I hope that the production run is large!
Wow, almost missed that one! Very nice indeed. Bavarian cuirassiers it will be for me and perhaps Imperial Austrian. This is going to be an expensive year!

I could be wrong, but I think there look to be four sets of French household cavalry - Grade du Corps, Mousquetaires, Gendarmes d’Elite and Grenadiers a Cheval. There seem to be two sets of English cavalry, at the charge and in advance. I didn’t see anything resembling French line cavalry, but could be wrong of course. And I definitely didn’t see French dragoons, which would definitely be needed as well. Plus Imperial cuirassiers in their old-fashioned lobster pots, of course.

Much asked for and now Strelets look as if all those customer requests will be answered in spades...
Here's an example from over a year ago. Samogon gets a fair credit here, but may not have been the first to ask? Anyway, regardless of this, good to see these on the way.
My Bavarian Regiment Costa, 18 figures nearing completion, will however, be 'AN Other' company's Horses and riders with Tumbling Dice heads. If only Strelets had told us about these figures 6 months ago....
I'll give you my address to send them to! :grinning:
Could do, 'cept I'll be using both (whether the likes of the one above and this one
are boxed separately or together) to mix and match between and within units, as it seemed that they likely did—and I'd do so for the look and variety of it anyway.
'Twas, of course, just a slightly tongue-in-cheek offer to save you adding to landfill. It seems a bit of a waste to have extracted the oil in the first place...!
Ciao for now,

If I do that I can't use them for WSS. Basically I'm tight fisted and want to get as much use as I can out of what I've got.
Agreed, we shouldn't be chucking good figures away. My dilemma is whether to buy any of the new Cuirassiers having expended time and effort producing some conversions using figures from other sources.....If I do buy, it means raising an Austrian contingent: cuirassiers, then infantry, then more cuirassiers, then hussars, then artillery.....:face_with_rolling_eyes:
Well, one more figure surely won't break a camel's horse's back:
These are gonna be magnificent!
Wow !! I want so much this set...
Brava brava brava Strelets!!
