Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: To Strelets

As I am collecting not only one box of each set a big box is no problem for me.

My only problem is, that the Russian dragoons 1812 of which I need a lot are only available in big boxes...

I don't mind the big boxes either; bought 4 of the Borodino sets so far...
I'm with Uwe though- I need lots of Russian dragoons (they had 30+ regts of them) and some hussars and cuirassiers never go awry, but what to do with those Saxons? I had already bought three single boxes, which is really plenty for a single regiment, so now I'm stuck with tons more.
If you do a big box, please only include units that existed in larger numbers.....

Hi Duco,

I thought about converting them to Saxon Chevaulegers. We need a shako (Esci kneeling French line), the labels can be painted over and the Pallasch converted to a sabre with some hot water. The boots cut off a little bit on the top to make trousers.

What do you think?

cheers
Uwe

Uwe - I think Strelets have missed an opportunity with the Russian Dragoons. I will not buy another set in the Big Box format as I can get the french cuirassiers in other sets now, so until they consider releasing the dragoons (or another type) then my armies will have to be made up of the rather dated HaT set. Which is pure lost sales from my perspective, so I really hope Strelets know what they are doing.
