: Strelets R Plastic Figures
Strelets*R was founded in 1998 to fill the gaps in the 1/72 scale figure market that had previously had to be filled with conversions by collectors themselves. Initially production began in Russia, later production shifted to the Ukraine. A feature that distinguishes Strelets*R from other 1/72 scale companies is the greater variety of poses in it's sets. This allows collectors and gamers to better recreate battles and improve the realism of games. A standard infantry set contains at least 45 different poses, and a mixed infantry/cavalry set at least 24 infantry and 6 mounted figures. In 2008 Strelets introduced the new range Strelets Mini. The declared purpose of this range is to provide troops suitable for large organised formations where the usual Strelets all-unique pose philosophy is less appropriate. Consequently the intention is not to provide an entire army in a box, but rather to provide figures based on a theme. Mini sets contain 48 figures in 12 poses. In 2012 Strelets started the new range Strelets Arms which focuses on vehicles, artillery and more from Ancient Roman to World War I. With their unique subject matter and time periods Strelets continues to be one of our most popular and best selling companies with collectors.
