Re: New type of bonus figure

You're a bad man Mr Murat you know how unstable Hank has become with all the stress of waiting in his padded cell for his Turks.

I think the only cure would be if Hank finally had his box of Turks with a bonus figure of matron with a syringe to administer his medication.

Turkish iNF CW Figure list

Brian, I'd rather settle for the matron and a Martini.She can keep the syringe for injecting the molds with cloning dna for mass production.

My wish list for the Turkish Infantry would be all aggressive poses as the Russians rarely took them prisoner.

Produce a 2 step compromise

1>Strelets -R set (hq plus support plus mini set)

HQ Element
Officer mounted rearing horse instructing
Sergeant with a rallying plastron in musket above his head
Two figures running dragging casualty behind them
Officer ,drum,bugle, flag (Mini Command)
Semaphore team of 2-3

Support
Mule with ammunition
Mule with stretchers and 2 casualties
Field Guns built into the sprue.(hello strelets designers ...savez ?)
4 gun crew equipment or alternative pose with ammunition box carriers
Plus Strelets-Mini Set

2> Turkish Infantry Mini Set
((Officer ,drum,bugle, flag (Mini Command))
Aiming Rifle (1 figure without fez)
loading Rifle (1 figure without fez)
Marching (1 figure without fez)
bayonetting (1 figure without fez)
Crouching ducking from fire 4(1 figure without fez)
Its all up to the 1/72 gods at Strelets now

Bonus figures?

How about some command figures for the russian and french chassuers in greats coats- I dunno- say 6 sets are released what about three with a french officer, drummer and standard beaerer in, anbd three with the russian.

Then do 2 mini boxes of turks like these, and put the officers in other sets, like these?

Re: Bonus figures?

hi Adam,yes it would be interesting to see some sort of configuration on offer for the collector.this would give both the dioramist and gamer the best of both types of sets.

I wish to god that the designers started to get hip incorprate a gun,limber horse as the sprue instead of the ever lumpy chunky pieces of plastic we end up with.

Surely the mold design software could be adapted easily enough TO USE AS BONES for the castings.

Re: Re: Bonus figures?

It would be nice if we could have Hank's face on the box for the Turkish set. Or even a figure of Hank as a Turkish officer.

Re: Re: Re: Bonus figures?

I second that, but be sure to read my reply 'by thunder ' above

Re: Re: Re: Re: Bonus figures?

Hey Murat,i always take things with a pinch of salt....especially teh raw meat etc.chuckle

Joking aside, sorry you are out of teh surgery.Madame la morphine is a truth drug , the queen of teh interrogation room so I hope you havent been talking to too many people about too many things,mon ami, especially with your back ground.

Like everything else it is a matter of time before pain too shall pass.The best aenesthetic is more beer
and a little cheer.Get well soon.

Re: Re: Re: Bonus figures?

Jan, my l'heurs du combat scarred face on a box would perhaps make a buyer violently sick. Even the ugliest of camels run away from me.(Often I think FiFi,bless her,maybe her eyesight may not be so good )

I think is great to see teh Strelets people on teh boxes ,in period costume involves their art and dedication to teh product will better promote.
There are far more worthy than i.
