Bods and Generals (2)

The one Thing that Strelets really does well, is produce original bods that otherwise are only available in Metal. That, added to their recent new sculpting look and massive output, makes them, IMHO, presently, the leading Producer of 1/72nd bods.

All from the Strelets set, Confederate General Staff 
I´m only going to use 4 from the set, the full 12 would be a bit much considering the size of the army at present.
According to the Boxart and PSR;
Robert E. Lee
General James Longstreet
Brigadier General William Barksdale
To lead the confederate cavalry, "The Grey Ghost", Colonel John S. Mosby
I´ve added small printed labels to keep track of who´se who. At some point I´ll be making labelled movement trays for the rest of the army  as it´s become too big to move them about in blocks of two bods at a time.


  1. Those are really nice! I especially like the Longstreet!

  2. They look fantastic. How tempting is that set?!

    1. Get them (and the Union Generals set 2) as soon as you can David. As far as I know Both sets aren´t produced anymore (Strelets could possibly bring them out in thier battle sets ..if they release such sets)
      Both sets are availble here:

    2. Thanks Paul. I read some advice last night that said exactly that. Always buy 1/72 that you want straight away because they discontinue.

  3. Superb, what a beautiful group of officers!

  4. Strelets is better and better and your painting puts them in value.

  5. Paul. Nice Rebs. But unrelated 100%. I saw you worrying about ordering the LotR from Taiwan. Don’t be. I got mine really quickly, with a little bonus figure thrown in. Marc

  6. The style of Strelets splits the audience. I rate them highly and, as you say, just getting better all the time!

  7. One thing you can't deny - Strelets ooze character!
