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.
will anybody be interested in other French line cavalry sets, let's say, lancers?
I am very interested in French Lancers!
Thanks for asking, Strelets
Count me in for a few boxes of lancers, too.
YES YES YES ,LANCERS!!!!! The line ones not the guard ones.
Great work Strelets. Very nice Cuirassiers.
Fairs fair Strelets dude.
Of course, yes. Thank you for asking!
A set of french chasseur à cheval; line not guard; should also be nice.
Line Lancers would be great. HAT's Chaussers are fine for me (altough only 4 poses) but their lancers were produced before they really hit their stride in terms of sculpting.
Yes French Lancers would be great
I don't suppose, while we're on French cavalry, that I could persuade you to make the Guard Eclaireurs? I for one would be happy to have all three regts. in one set; that's still four poses. They are so hard to convert!
As for the lancers- absolutely; I'd buy a few boxes
I second your proposal for Eclaireurs (Guard Scout
Lancers).I would like to see Lithuanian Tartars of the Guard, Chasseurs-a-Cheval Young guard squadrons,Horse
Grenadiers wearing greatcoats(winter dress)and Saxon
Zastrow Cuirassiers wearing capes.
Lithuanian Tartars-may be cool looking, but once again we'll have manufacturers going after some miniscule minor unit when there are many eras that are being unproduced, and when there are still major units within the Nap era that haven't been done. Please some sanity.
Are you questioning my sanity ( can any grown man who
plays with toy soldiers be considered sane?)? If you go back a little bit on this post Strelets Team is asking us if there are any French line cavalry units we would like to see.
I would love to see French line lancers,chasseurs but I also think most of France's cavalry units have been covered by other manufacturers.Maybe Strelets team is systematically going to cover various other nation's cavalry units in the future.They seem to be on a French cavalry wave at the moment.There's no harm
in asking is there?
OK you got me on that one, sanity regarding toy soldiers is asking a bit much. I suspect that I will be shot at dawn by a 1/72 firing squad of Nap French Infantry.
Yes - French cavalry would be well received, but so would Austrian, Prussian or Russian (especially early wars).
Lancers - big yes. Guard Lancers - even bigger yes.
PS- like the Cuirassiers. I bought the Big Box but need more, and more Russians!!!!
If I may add after the fact, I'd love to see French Lancers who also wore the Czapka four-pointed cap. The example of thinking of was in the movie "Major Dundee" with Charlton Heston and Richard Harris. These were French military stationed in Mexico before and during the American Civil War, I suppose at the end of the Maxamillian era in Mexico.
The Czapka these Lancers wore were smaller, but very beautiful looking. The uniforms are simple. I hope these Frenchmen could be used for other campaigns also !!!
Thanks for reading this far ...
