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.
Hope its OK, but this is a popular thread and is disappearing pretty far down the page. Most good ideas come by chance, not design, so the more ideas the S*R Team gets from it's customers, the better, so if I may ...
... Not a new request, but another of my dreams, would be for nice "Alamo Campaign" & "Mexican-American War Campaign" Mexicans and Texicans. Both Campaigns could be produced by mixing the following sets as Mini Boxes, Traditional or Big Box sets, and other sets could be added to expand to other Campaigns:
* Alamo/Mexican-American War Officers Set (in Blue)
* Alamo Mexicans (Mini Sets of Inf/Art/Cav in Blue, Terracotta and Gray)
* Alamo Texicans (with racoon skin caps Terracotta Full Set)
* Alamo/Mexican-American War Gray Coats (Mini Set in Gray color)
I have bought the other sets now available, and the plastic is far too brittle. The Round Hats lances break off very easily. I'm hoping for a nice, soft plastic, nice colors, "Alamo Campaign" & "Mexican-American War Campaign".
All era civillians and 30YW sets btw was it right yhat i bought revell swedes and imperial artillery ???
There are many sets that would be nice, but if you are looking for some consensus, here are the sets that have been asked for by more than one person (two or more).
There is already a full plate here.
A Persian Royal chariot with Darius,
Hannibal and staff, perhaps some ancient Carthagian Civilians
Hannibals Veterans (Punic wars)
Germanic leaders - can be a mixed set with various famous kings, e.g. Theodorich for Ostrogoths, Alaric for Visigoths etc. and court
Germanic Warriors (Miniset)
Many, many for Seven Years War/French & Indian War
7YW firing lines(British and French)
Skirmishing Indian warriors for French-Indian wars (Mohawks, Iroquois, Huron)
Alamo Texicans / Texans for the Alamo
Two of your futures are requested several times:
Crimean War Turkish Infantry
Crimean War French Cavalry
American Civil War
A second mounted Confederate command set to make up for the foot set
ACW dismounted cavalry in skirmish line, Both Yankee and Confederate (several requests)
ACW New York Highlanders(Kilted)
Mexican Adventure a couple times:
Camerone 1863 French Foreign Legion.
Camerone/Mexican Adventure Mexican Cavalry and Infantry
Several for Franco Prussian war range
French Commanders, Staff, Hospital for the Franco-Prussian War 1870/71.
Commanders and Staff (low ranks as well) for the Prussians, Bavarians, Württembergers, and other German states for the Franco-Prussian War 1870/71.
1870/71 French and "German" infantry, artillery
Russian Civil War troops of various persuasions.
Russian Civil War - bolshevik infantry in the shlem
Any on this list that is popular with everyone? Keep voting! It would be easier for Strelets to pick from a small list that many people want, instead of EVERY army in the history of time.
SYW Infantry (Austrian and Prussian) in mini sets: musketeers, fusiliers, and grenadiers.
SYW personalities in the regular Strelets format.
7YW, 5 infantry (grenadiers, musketeers, fusiliers, highlanders, command), 3 cavalry (curiassiers, dragoons, hussars), 1 artillery, Jacobites.
A good start would be fairly generic troops that could be used for different nations.
you hit the nail on the head. I'd buy ALL THOSE SETS!
I would like sets to do with the War of the Spanish Succession/Campaigns of Marlborough. Cavalry, artillery and infantry from all sides, pref in new mini format
The first that come to mind:
1.F&IW - British Inf. (Line, Grenadiers, Black Watch)
2.F&IW - French Inf. (Line, Marines,..)
3.F&IW - Rangers, Frontiersman, Coureurs de bois,...
4.F&IW - Hurons, Shawnee, Mohawk,...
5.Jacobite Rebellion - Jacobite Forces
6.Jacobite Rebellion - Government Forces
7.Franco-Prussian War - Prussian Inf.,Art.,Cav...
8.Franco-Prussian War - French Inf.,Art.,Cav...
9.Russian Civil War - Red Army
10.Russian Civil War - White Army
Well, so I already reached the number 10...
But then there are so many more I would like to mention, like :
- Boxer Rebellion Allied Troops
- Mexican Revolution (so many regulars and irregulars involved)
- Early WWI (Germans in Pickelhaubs, British wearing cap, Highlanders in Glengarries).
French and Indian War ! You too are dreaming like me !
Strelets , do these and the requests from David and rest assure, I will buying multiple set !
And please hurry as I am 56 years old !
We dream the same dreams !
I have high-hopes that the S*R Team does the Alamo/Mexican American War themes - especially because there was so much European influence on the Mexican armies, Napoleonic style uniforms and tactics, that I think all collectors would enjoy having these.
Fingers crossed! :-)
Things get serious here, with everyone pulling out his wishlist to Strelets. With all the many votes already in the ballots, I am afraid my interests will lose, if I don't act now. So here is the vote for my party:
1. dismounted soldiers for all the WWI cavalry sets
2. mounted napoleonic general staffs, similar to the french one (hard to find, probably very limited edition - Donald, did you get them?)
3. napoleonic army camps (similar to the OOP french)
4. WWI hospitals
5. WWI german jagers, and early MG troops
6. ancient personalities & commanders
I'll stop here.
Now that I've voted for my party, I'll go party!!
