Strelets Germanic Horsemen

Strelets ancient Cavalry week??? Why not...I´ve got a bit of a soft spot for Strelets figs.
They got a bit of a bad review at PSR on the historical aspect but they are still not a bad set..usefull for supporting J.Caeser in vanquishing vecingetorix´s  Gallic Hordes. There are some good little touches like the heads of enemies hung on the horses!!!
Two of the "wolf riders".....
OOOH my aching head!!!


  1. Nice work - boy that trophy hanging from the horse has quite an impact. Best, Dean

  2. Disconcertingly lovely Sir!

  3. They look great. I should add a head or two to my own German cav.


  4. they look "barbaric" enough to me. What's the problem?

  5. Excellent again Paul. The head does add something to the overall effect.

  6. The Strelets style seems to have rubbed off on me, sort of like how I like the Heroics and Ros 6mm no matter how much the other companies add details--by making their 6mm measure more like 8mm--but something about them looks good anyway in a way. The Strelets looked too chunky or odd at first but the more I look the more I like them, and I can't even see that here anyway on these, so they are on my list.

  7. I've been looking at Strelets Crimean war. Chunky but OK and the newer Crimean sets are best Crimean figures available.

    On topic....

    I'm amazed at the variety of ancients available from Strelets PLUS I like Plastic Soldier Review's mini history lessons with each figure review even if they are critical of the set.

  8. Excellent figures, why is it us chaps all seem to agree the head decoration looks great!!, perhaps I should add this detail to my horse, which is infact a car, I can think of plenty of people's heads I'd like to use!!!!....Fran!

  9. I was wondering why that guy was taking a mask with him. But now you others say, that's a trophy. I can live with that.

    These are again great painted figures Paul!

    @Ray: Big Grin!
