Re: I like the idea of WWII mini sets

Excellent choices Arlin.

Finnish Army, Hungarian Army, Dutch Army, Romanian Army, Bulgarian Army, Slovakian Army, KNIL Colonial Troops, have no 1/72nd scale representatives.

Engineers; Signal radio and telephone; medical, doctors and nurses; high ranking commanders, personalities, military police, motorcycle troops are all sorely lacking for most nations for WWII. Even the Germans lack some of these.

HaT did do Romanians but they weren't the best figures they ever did.
Sorry to be dense but what is the KNIL?

Re: Re: Re: I like the idea of WWI mini sets

How about a mini set of all nations WW1 trench raiders?


Re: Re: Re: I like the idea of WWII mini sets

KNIL are the Dutch colonial troops that fought the Japanese invasion of the Dutch colonies in 1942

Koninklijk Nederlands Indonesisch Leger
Which means Royal Dutch Indonesian Army
Also indonesian people were in it.


I think Strelets could make about any set, any period and with the new sculpting and having mini-sets, it would turn out a bestseller. I wouldn't even mind getting a German WW2 hospital spread out over 4 different sets:
3 minisets - nurses, wounded and combat medics.

I would probably buy just one box of combat medics, but several boxes of nurses and wounded. The nurses could be useful for about any war since the early middle ages, as their attire hasn't really changed much. They could do double duty as nuns - imagine a Viking raid, duty in colonial Peking or Africa, WW1, AWI, Napoleonic wars etc.

That all could be followed by a Big Box set that includes some skillful surgeons, an operating room, amputees, POW, civilians, a horse sled. The box cover could feature a cut-out picture of the 'Stalingrad Madonna', which was painted by a physician in Stalingrad:

Re: Re: WWII

Well, there are even gaps in the 'ordinary ww2 sets'. What about soviet scouts in camo overalls? what about german, soviet and us mountain units? (the us 10th mountain division had quite some unique pieces of equipment) anyone ever saw a 1/72 set of luftwaffe feldivision or Balkan partisans?

Just my two cents
