New Highlight! 902 Heavy Brigade

I must confess that I was a bit sceptical- always Crimea war figures -British in different variants- big boxes for selling- But now I be ddply impressed. Btw: I also really like your 901 Set as well as the Russian Gerneral Staff and Hospital set!!! They are absolutely great!

On your front page you'd written that you will be another 1:72 figure producer- in Quality and Quantity. I deeply hope that you do not want to make mass production. I can understand your policy about the cavalries and mini sets but please do not forget that you should really to unique and impressive sets which the other produers can not do.

Please let us know who the standing people are? And does this mean that we will not see an Allied Command Staff (Brit./French)?.

Last but not least- Please please Strelets -let us know when we can expect your new output. I'm crying for these great figures!!! Your Romans, Russians WWI and now the great 902 Heavy Brigade! My compliment!

Best regards from Austria!

PS: Hope you'd considered about my wishes for your next announcements!

French Uhlans in winter uniform

hopefully I can find sleep now!

Re: New Highlight! 902 Heavy Brigade

Hmm? Martin Macalka raises an interesting question ... "Will there be French Command?"

Maybe the French Cavalry could be combined with Officers to make a Big Box, I'd prefer separate, however, another possibility:

* French Cavalry (12 poses cluding casualty)
* French Zouave Officers (couple of poses)
* A good Seargent with imposing markings
* French Regular Officers (same)
* French Command on Horseback poses (more is better)

Have a Grand Week!

Well done, Strelets.

Balaklava (surely)

93d Highlands laddies StrElets-R
Turkish (inf)and (Turk art 16 pounder crew)
Royale Navy and Marine blues(art crew big ship guns)

Russian Hussars
Russian Terek Cossacks
Russian Horse and men Casualties

Royale Marine Inf same as brittish Line.
Royale Navy set could oppose Russian Navy
Why no French Napoleonic Navy figures(perhaps usable for napoleonic also)

Re: New Highlight! 902 Heavy Brigade

Like Martin I would like to know when these wonderfull figures will be available to buy.

Re: New Highlight! 902 Heavy Brigade

Dear Martin,

the standing figures are actual people taken mainly from the contemporary fotoes but you can use them as generic figures, although their actual names are mentioned on the box.

Allied Chiefs of Staffs, most probably, won't be released as a single set. We doubt that you will need more British staff any way.

The set is going to released in this month.

Best regards,

French imperial staff (second empire)

Perhaps you could make a seperate French staff set that includes both personlaities of the CW and the French-Prussian war (Napoleon III and others).

Re: French imperial staff (second empire)

I am really looking forward to getting my hands on these new figures!
