Boer War British in plastic at 22mm

Post by CarlL » 02 Sep 2019, 22:37

New review over at Plastic Soldier Review website of Strelets Set M133 [Boer War] British Infantry Skirmishing.
see http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/review.aspx?id=2692
These are from the beginnings of our period of 20th century but may be useful as early Italians too, or even for French in solar helmets of this period in Africa and Far East.
I have taken the liberty of borrowing their review photos to share here as there is something charming about these relatively simple figures. You get 56 figures in 14 poses in one box. Impresive.

Nicer than Red Box, not as good as the old Esci ones in my opinion :)

I have a very good book from a British military observer who went with the French under D`Amade into morocco in 1908. D`Amade himself had been a military observer for the French with the British during the Boer War; so the two men compared notes and the British officer noted the French had taken on board and learned/improved on several deficiencies which the British had suffered from in SA.
