Tecumseh - Strelets

Not a bad set,  12 bods with some interesting poses
As  noted on the PSR write up, no bare chested warriors (apparently they liked to fight bare chested)  and the bod who is meant to represent Tecumseh is repeated 4 times so, along with the crawling bod,  a bit of a waste.
At the Moment I can´t see any decent conversion possibilities but maybe at some Point I will so one sprue is Held in reserve, the  Two  extra sprues have been put on the "Bods - Sale/swop" page.
 The strelets bods are 22.5mm, the Italeri ones 25mm, the 1.5mm height difference seems a lot when each make is compared alongside each other...…
....but mixed together, the height difference becomes less apparent and  they make a decent looking warband. 
…. The man himself, Tecumseh (middle)

Would be nice if Strelets made a Woodland civilian set or two. The Imex Eastern Friendly Indians set is very nice, but at 26mm tall,  they are giants, especially in comparison with the Strelets bods,   ...and the set is hard to find.
