If only Strelets actual figures look more like their Masters. Production of the figs continues to disappoint me... :(

As I said some times before: I really need this set plus the upcoming Russians standing order arms. And quite a lot boxes of both. They best I can say, judging the pictures of the sprues: they are passable. Just about. But not a top quality product so it seems.
So I’ll buy them.
They will be placed in mass formation and hopefully okay that way (i.e.: the possible flaws might fall out of sight).
But the centerpiece of my Borodino dio will be the many different artillery crews and battery (+ converted figures), the cavalry and all the other plastic and metal sets I already got (et la Grande Armée naturellement!).
Absolutely not enormously disappointed, but feel a bit so so...

British infantry in advance, 1701-14, sprues and figures.
Seems to be a very good quality! :thumbup:

Hard to compare the actual end result with the masters as they are made using that grotty red plastic but They look mainly ok although the command figures are missing a bit of Detail compared to the masters.
Point of the pikestaff missing and it´s in two pieces
The swords of the Standard bearers and bugler aren´t complete.

I´ll be getting them anyway, see how they paint up :-)

More Prussian Landwehr cavalry.
Actually this time it suits me fine that they are not in active poses, so far.

From PSR;
Strelets have announced another new set in the pipeline, and this time it returns to their medieval range. The new set is 'Medieval City Levy', so a general set covering many potential nationalities.

From Strelets site, boxart

I am glad Strelets is producing so many new sets and hope they will continue to produce and satisfy everybody needs for figures...

Have to say the PSR review of the first War of Spanish Succession Brit infantry set is true - the final production figures really do reflect the high quality of the masters. The only other time I've seen that is with their 2017 Imperial Roman Auxiliaries sets. I don't have any personal interest in either periods but it is certainly a good sign for the future if they keep it up.

Oh well, it can´t all be new stuff. Still, both sets were hard to get hold of so a plus in that direction.
