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.
Okay I'm with Adam and Christian.I am amazed that the main CW enemy of Russia is not even represented with 20 plus sets been released and lesser period numeriacal represented sets in place.
If US Cav set didnt sell, then LETS move on. I am of the opinion that teh painful stretching out CW Turkish release until 2009 will have lost impeteus with collectors who will by tehn have moved on to other periods where there is more complete ranges available on sale and in teh shops. "Coming Soon " translated from Strelets realistically means maybe 3 years.
I would humbly sugest that Strelets consider dversifying into other scales and other products within 1:72 such as vehicles, buildings.
You should also consider selling directly to the customer via the internet since Strelets already has a good internet customer/fan base to begin with.
Just to add to Dave Hennen's Big Box Of "American
Civil War Commanders & Cavalry,"
OK here goes...
2 Complete sprews of U.S. Cavalry (in Mid-Blue &
Mounted Commanders for both sides
A sprew of head swaps with Kepi and Slouch hats for
conversions (matching colours for both armies)
All new set of Dismounted Cavalry as suggested
many times on this forum (in Mid-Blue & Gray),
could have the extra head swaps attached to
these new sprews.
New box colours with brighter surround to give a
whole new feel - maybe using blue,
or red and, or white.
The back of the box maybe depicting the figures
set up on a green cloth with hillsides and trees
for displaying purposes.
The front of the box should use what is most cost
effective for Strelets, but something that goes well
with the (All new) box colours.
And for the ancient period a new box, either a Big Box or a single box which can consist of:
A plastic wall with a milecastle (fit together
multi-parts most probably) staffed by a small
garrison of soldiers/ or a town wall and gatehouse
with soldiers firing down upon intruders with spears,
javelins, arrows and firing the ballista.
This could be done in a Big Box with some of the
previously released mini box sets of romans.
Cheers for invite to join the thread by the way.
I sure like the ideas of accessories, but, but, but, not just ACW. I would love to see sprews for doing Roman Heads Swops, Napoleonic Heads Swops, and all other popular themes, too!:
* A sprew of head swaps with Kepi and Slouch hats for
conversions (matching colours for both armies) and same for Nappys and Romans. They often borrowed left-over weapons and helmets
* All (any) new set(s) ... with the extra head swaps attached to these new sprews.
