Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

Well ofcourse I will reply!
I really will try to do my best to get the reserve cuirassiers from strelets+ the russian ones and the rest of the box. They look beatifull and I like to have them in reserve.
However charging fr. cuirassies are just still needed.
What surprises me is that Hat is still not making them.
A trooper set with four poses and a staff set also with four poses(flag bearier, commander etc).
Would be perfect for their concept.
And they know, we know, everyone knows they will sell well!
Just like the fact that everyone is buying way too much french infantry, especially guard infantry, we also buy the cuirassiers like idiots!

Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

I'm with you, Andreas, but I definitely like to see more than 4 poses. The usual 12 poses from Strelets would be great! And, yes, they will sell very, very well.

Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

I definitely second that!

Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs (more Masterpieces)

Dear Everyone,

Judging from the many responses to this first set of Cuirassiers, this will become the next range of S*R "Cavalry Masterpieces" to equal, or exceed the excitement of those of their Crimean range.

Hopefully future French sets would be Strelets-Minis, so that we could afford to buy more sets and make hugely beautiful cavalry charges !!! :-)

If so, they should become one of he most popular and successful lines ever for the S*R Team. The more themes, the better. I am crazy for, and would buy anything French Cuirassiers.

And oh yes, Andreas! An action set of 12 poses would be great. Already some of us are suggestiing a casualty figure included, maybe a standing figure fighting upright on foot from behind his downed mount would be new and exciting.

Happy Dreaming!

Re: Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs (more Masterpieces)

would indeed be very, very nice.

Cheers,

Christiaan

ANOTHER SOLUTION???

Excellent Idea Andreas, I have another idea:
It would be nice if Strelets sculptors would sculpt
some of the cavalry figures with seperate arms.Leave
the modeller to decide which position to place the arm.
Put the arm with sword pointing upward, you have a trooper waving his sword; put the arm pointing forward
you have a trooper charging; put the arm pointig low
you have a trooper thrusting at an enemy soldier or
artillerist; finally sword pointing to the ground,
you have a trooper at rest.

Charging is good.....

Just in case Strelets gets the wrong message.
Whilst I would very much like a charging French cuirassiers' set as well, I am very, very happy with the prospect of a standing set.
I think the one set is excellent! Two sets would be great. I, personally, would like to 'raise' 4-6 French cuirassier regiments.Two poses would help.
Thank you again for finally covering this vital unit.

Re: Charging is good.....

Put me down for this well

Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

I'm not a big fan of Strelets*R figures, but these look fantastic! I prefer standing cuirassiers though.

Defenitely gonna buy one!

(It is awkward that Hät hasn't made a cuirassier set yet..)

Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

I asked that to HaT several years ago: the answer was and: "We want to fill the gaps in the collection of figures 1:72. There are already cuirassiers of different brands. So we don't want to make them". I hope they will change thoughts. Martin

Re: Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

Martin,
I don't think Hat will reconsider.In addition to the
new Strelets set and all those other older sets(Airfix,
Italeri/Esci etc...)we also have a set coming out in the
Autumn from Legio too!!!

Re: Re: Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

The cuirasseirs look great. If we all buy a lot perhaps Strelets will make a charging set.

Re: Re: Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

The Legio set looks very promising. Still, I'll buy the Strelets set as well.

Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

Andreas,
you have my full support on that one. Also I would like to see more than 4 poses, but a mini-set wouldn`t be too bad for me aswell. The new figures look very good indeed and I`m quite sure that this set will be "sold out" very soon!
BTW, who or what is Hät?
Greetings

Re: Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

Hät is one of the largest manufacturers of 1:72 scale figures in the world.

www.hat.com

Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

Yes, and this manufacturer offers an own forum as I see now!
Hät has nice boxarts... , do the figures live up to the expectations generated by the box?
The Strelets-Boxart isn`t of the same quality standard, but their figures are always real winners!!! Good researched, detailed and sculpted figures with a rich variety of very useful poses for interisting eras/armies.
Greetings

Re: Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

I can't say the Strelets figures are very detailed and sculpted. Some of them lack any detail. The latest output by Hät are one of the best figures I've ever seen.

Re: Re: Dear all: Charging French Cuirasseirs

To compare figures of different manufacturers go to the : plasticsoldierreview.com

On that site you will find hundreds of sets that have been revied and in some cases height comparisons between manufacturers.

Best regards,

Malcolm
