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.
Yeay, your Crusader sets are great! (just got your military order sergeants, great chaps!) (And all the other Strelets sets I got with Sinterklaas: medieval levy 2, Franks versus vikings, carilogian cavalry, Norman and Breton Cavalry, and french foot dragoons and polish grenadiers. All wonderful sets!)
Marching Napoleonics:) A set of marching of marching french infantry would be a BIG seller. What about a set of pre 1806 troops in ragged wornout uniforms, greatcoats, lost shoes, etc.
And strelets, what about doing a 48 poses set of napoleonic french Chasseurs de montage and Gendarmes à pied in Spain? That would be really cool.
Or a set of french infantry in spain in true CAMPAIGN uniforms.
I would go for marching Napoleonics in campaign dress both French and British, something similar to your Romans on the march mini boxes. These would be great sellers for those of us who wargame.
I said it before and I'll say it again- How on earth can we possibly have a crusading army without crossbows???? Please don't tell me to convert, I happily do it all the time but I don't want to spend a ridiculous amount of time and money to try and scratch together some half-a** crossbowmen when there should be a set of them produced by Strelets. The crossbow was THE key weapon that kept the numerous Saracen archers at bay and along with the infantry spear/shield wall provided a firm base for the famous and unstoppable Frankish cavalry charge. Please Strelets address this glaring hole in an otherwise awesome set of figures. Thanks for listening
Jason - I couldn't agree with you more.
Do not suffer anymore,
I trust Strelets: for sure he makes one (or two) mini-set of medieval crosswmen soon, with kneeling and standing soldiers.
What do you think?
PS: More mounted muslim archers are also needed!! The ratio gives the turcopoles the advantage against the seljukes!!
