Are we finally going to get a set of dragoons who are not in a full charge while waiving their swords above their heads?

I do think so. Just like the other two Prussian cavalry sets by Strelets coming up.
Wouldn’t mind if the Prussian Landwehr Cavalry by LinearA would be more active/in the action though. At least they should wear litewka’s for a bit more variety, since the strelets dragoons won’t get them. And that’s what they wore most of the time.
Love the idea to have several sets of these Uhlans with raised lances behind my columns of marching Prussian infantry, flanked by dragoons and hussars.
(always love the fearful sight of lancers or a wood of lances, in any period or time.

According to the box art, we will finally get a load of bullsh*
Could anyone at Strelets please hire someone who has at least a glimpse of knowledge of napoleonic uniforms before creating some fantasy boxart?

Really, I'm annoyed to the maximum.

Apart for a possible surprise I think most of the next release has been shown. Only some sprues and final figures.
Or did I missed something?
I’m afraid no Napoleonic Russian infantry shoulder arms for me this summer (not complaining, was just hoping, autumn can be a nice season too!).

This webbing seems to be German to me, doesn’t it?
North African theatre/8th Army/Afrika Korps might be the subject.

The odd mix of stocking caps, shemaghs, and British and German webbing in these recent previews makes me think of the 1948 war in Palestine, but I think this is too obscure.

Even if that is not the case, I welcome them for that purpose :yeah:

I suspect LRDG for sure, and with today`s snap shots Africa korps heavy weapons the pouches for the mp 38/40 lead me not to think tank crew, but a Africa korps tank crew set would be wonderful, even more so if it is to the same standard as the British orion one that arrived today, superb figures.

Africa korps heavy weapons is a good option. Would be the first for strelets in their new style. Stalingrad and police battalion are in their old style.

Two command and two infantrymen got a shako cover with a pompom under it, which is a mistake. So a little work with a file to smooth the round top again.
I expected more, so not that bad.

This weeks friday preview. Some really nice figures for an oftentimes requested Afrika Korps support weapons set. This will unquestionably prove helpful to finally fill an obvious & long overdue WWII gap. :thumbup:
