Strelets, when are you going to release the Borodino set?

I am salivating over being able to buy those French Cuirassiers and Russian Dragoons. As per PSR, sounds like you will include the already issued Russian Hussars and Saxon Garde du Corps. Are there going to be any specialty figures that might increase the allure of having to buy a big box? For example, a completely new Russian or French mounted officer, a Russian priest figure, etc.

How many months do we have to wait?

Dear Rob,
If you look at Strelets future releases it says:
JUNE 2007! How's that for service?

While waiting for this much anticipated set, Strelets better tell us that they're going to make a new set of charging cuirrasseirs. That would definitely make our wait much more bearable.

to strelets: Future strategy

Any chance that the cuirassiers and Russian dragoons will be relesed seperatly in the future once the big boxes are sold? As these big boxes will sell rapidly I don't think I will have a chance to buy as many as I need.

Any chance you will be making big box sets of French and Russian army winter dress with the new sets and a set with French/ Russian commanders?

Many regards

Re: to strelets: Future strategy

Dear Pieter,

no, sets designed specifically for the "Big Boxes" won't be re-released separately.

We aren't planning other "Big Boxes" for the Napoleonics in a foreseeable future.

Best regards,

Re: Strelets, when are you going to release the Borodino set?

Dear Strelets, have you decided how many sets you are going to release of the Bordino big box??

Judging by the look of the range of figures and the fact that the Borodino bicentennial is due in 5 years, you may want to keep these masters if that is possible.

I am thinking of 2 or 3 boxes for myself, lord knows how many other enthusiasts will get mulitiple boxes.

I sincerely hope you dont underestimate the interest in this.

Many thanks for producing this great Battle in your range.

cheers Mike McA

Dear Mike,

our community isn't that big as one might imagine.
This set will be released with a production run of about 1.000 boxes.

Best regards,

Strelets

How many sets were made of the medieval big box?

Just so we can compare both. The medieval box is still available, but it is hard to find.

Re: How many sets were made of the medieval big box?

I'm not planning to buy a big box, because I get a lot of figures I don't like/want. I really wanted the new figures in the Medieval Britain big box, but I don't want to have all the other sets that are included. The same with the Borodino set, I want those cuirassiers, but I don't need any russians etc, so I won't be buying it. Strelets could sell more when they sell the sets seperately as well.
