9 Dec 2018 ArticleIcon Two possible forthcoming releases?
As so often things are a bit confused with Strelets, but some dealers are now listing two more sets as coming, presumably soon. These are:
  • 188 - Pom-Pom Gun with Boer Crew
  • 192 - French Foreign Legion on the March
Neither set shows any sign of progress on the Strelets website, so we are unclear as to whether these two sets are likely to be released together with the previously announced sets later this month, or at some point next year, but we shall see.
28 Nov 2018 ArticleIcon Another new release for the week
Waterloo 1815 have started shipping their latest release, which is 043 World War I Italian Infantry Set 2. This set includes the figures from their disappointing first set, 019, plus nine new poses, which look like a considerable improvement in sculpting quality. Pictures as always will be posted as soon as possible, followed by a review.

Some dealers have started listing those Strelets sets that we can expect shortly. They are:

  • 169 - Landwehr Standing at Ease
  • 174 - Prussian Infantry on the March
  • 176 - Japanese Type 38 75mm Field Gun
  • 177 - British 15 pdr 7 cwt BL Gun with Crew
  • 182 - 30 pdr Parrott Rifle with US Crew

  • 185 - Foot Rif Rebels
  • 186 - French Foreign Legion (Rif War)
