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.
Always nice to see a company asking their customers-feedback for future products!
7YW - Prussian, Austrian, Russian, French, ... firing/advancing lines + marching. Just to start a 7YW line finally!
Spanish Tercios - pike and musket lines in defense & advancing.
WWII - Soviet (early & late), British (early & late), US, Japanese, Polish, French (1940), Romanian, Italian troops marching/advancing.
WWI - German (early & late), French, British, Russian, Osman, Italian, Serbian troops marching/advancing.
Napoleonic - Prussian, Russian, Saxon, Austrian, French, British, Bavarian, Swedish, ... firing/advancing lines (squares) + marching sets.
Greek & Macedonian Phalanx - suitable & individual sets appropriate for different eras, citys/countries would be great!
30YW - pike & musket lines defending + advancing.
War of the Spanish Succession - French, Habsburgian, ... firing/advancing lines.
Romans - from different eras (not just republican) in marching, ready, "fighting/defending-line" poses would be welcomed!
Franco Prussian War - different Prussian, Bavarian, Württemberger, ..., French units in firing/advancing poses and marching.
... and if I think of it many units from different nations for many some more conflicts/wars/eras come to mind...
You can consider the Boxer rebellion with the european and japanese army partecipating the colonial war.
Maybe a new set of foreing legion...or the Reinassance period with the mercenary troops, Italian Principates, etc..
Yes and I suggest to improve ancient armies in general.
I mean not only romans, but etruscans, oscans, samnites, apulian and italian greek city states armies.
All that above could form a great representation of ancient Italy for a period between V and III century BC.
Critical success factor would be 'poses'. I mean all suitable for a falanx formation for greek based culture armies or maniple formation for italic/samnites culture armies. We could re-create Samnite wars against Rome V - IV century BC. Also early roman army suitable to fight against that populations would be fine. Osprey library is really full of excellent examples.
I am a little bit italian focused but other countris ancient armies are welcome.
With all my best congratulation for the initiative.
I'd like to put my name in the hat for:
(1) Russio-Japanese War, and
(2) Spanish-American War.
Caesar has listed them for years, but they are not in line for 2008 even, so what decade (?), and BUM's got a negative review and feedback for the one set they did make in poor-quality plastic. I e-mailed BUM and they kindly and politely replied that other sets are being made for now, and they don't know when they will come back to Spanish-American War. Caesar never responded to my question but have posted updates for 2008, so - Nothing for the forseeable 2-3 years.
Please, please, please put these two themes in your Futures.
Thank you for listening! :-)
Yes, we need formations for Russo-Japanese war of 1905 and Spanish American War: no one seems to be doing these despite the demand. Please, Strelets, put your talents to work in this area!
If we're on the general subject of new sets can I put in a word for Conquistadore artillery?
Or just generic European artillery from the 16th century, as I don't think there are any such sets available.
Any napoleonic battle line.... Troops were more usually in line than anything.... during a battle.
Up to 1914 lines were the common attack formation so any new units, french colonial marines for african campaigns, german Schutztruppe in East Africa in WW1, anything handy between 1650 and 1918.
