Strelets seem to be releasing 2 sets in February regardless of the continuing bad situation in Eastern Ukraine. Sadly, no preview pictures so far.

Retailers began selling the 2 new sets this week.
Unfortunately, still no really reliable images of the figures' actual appearance at the moment, instead some blurred pictures of the original masters. :eh:

286 - Napoleonic British Infantry in square

We have seen these before but it would be helpful to know how the final figures turned out. :eh:
We may even have to wait for a PSR (p)review, but it may take some time since the UK market is being supplied with some delays in recent years... :(

For clearer pictures check various postings on pages 39, 43 & 44 of this thread:

Wow, PSR have got their act together and the newly available Strelets sets are already featured in the Awaiting Review section. :thumbup:
As already anticipated, the moulding quality unfortunately seems to suffer from the war conditions in eastern Ukraine (flash on 286 figures). :(
Overall, beautifully sculpted figures in appropriate poses.
