I actually posted the announcement by Strelets at their own site already in this topic (with the numbers, and names). But good news indeed! :joker:
For the shipping should arrive at the European dealers about at the end of this week. :thumbup:

Just got my Bavarians from Hannants, both the in attack and at ease sets. Great figures and the blue plastic is the easiest ever to clean up mold lines from. For whatever reason it doesn't get all stringy but cuts more like wax. The figures are fairly soft and easy to manipulate the poses. They work fairly wel with the HAT Bavarians though the HAT figs are just a tad larger. The heads on the Strelets have way better detail though. My sole complaint is the bayonets aren't very good, some as if the mold didn't fill completely or the sculpt was bad. Minor but worthy of noting. I really like that the attacking set has wounded figures that come with it. Well done Strelets.

They are superb, and some of the poses we have been shown previously are not included, so other sets must be on the way too. Fourteen poses, now that is impressive, particularly so given they are all so good.
