The occasional ramblings of a historical wargamer
Lovely work Mark, and they look a fair bit different to their renaissance counterparts. It is still a very smart uniform however. Do you remember that fellow at Auckland Wargaming Club who had an Ottoman Napoleonic army? They were up there with the Spanish as most difficult to handle least likely to win a game, but he persevered stoically with them.
There are some illustrations that show a uniform close to the renaissance types so I could possibly use some. I do vaguely remember an Ottoman army at the AWC and yes under the WRG rules they would have been a tough force to handle. Speaking of Spanish, they are looming on the horizon.
Gorgeous, love this colorful unit, great job on the turbans...
Thank you Phil.
Another great looking unit here Mark....look forward to the day they can enter the fray on the table!
I am picking that around October there will be enough complete to take to the table.
Nice work Mark, colours are working well together.
Thanks Nick. The next units planned are some Albanians and some more Nazim-i-Cedid, probably in late-September.
This unit will certainly stand out on the table! Beautiful colors.
Thank you Jonathan.
Great looking Ottomans,I am tempted by Renaissance Ottomans,ther t is just such a long period you can use them! These are lovely and will look splendid in your small (?) force!Best Iain
Yes they are lovely figures. I may add a few of the Renaissance figures later as I am sure some of the old costume wa still around.
Splendid...One of my first wargames armies were the Ottomans... not an easy choice but so very colourful.All the best. Aly
I am looking forward to doing some more of these. The next couple of units will be some Albanians (for some more millinary variation) and another unit of Nazim-i-Cedid (in pale blue this time to provide some colour variation).
Great work Mark, I have a couple of packs tucked away and your post has pushed them up the paint queue.CheersStu
They are a nice figure. There may have to add a few more of them in the future.
