The occasional ramblings of a historical wargamer
Another two Ottoman units, one foot and one mounted, have stormed off the painting desk and into their storage trays.
Also completed is the command group of three figures.
Another great looking addition to this collection Mark!
Half way through another unit of foot now, should be finished tomorrow. Then there are just two more units of cavalry to finish the Ottomans. I hope to have them all finished by the end of next week.
Wonderful work, Mark! This will be a colorful army once completed.
The next unit of foot is much less colourful...almost black and white actually.
The Ottoman army is so beautiful...excellent job, impressive close ups!
Thank you Phil.
Storming Ottomans indeed! These look great and the simple conversions work really well!Best Iain
Yes the look impressive, but I supect that when they get on the table they will be as ineffecive as they were in real life, although they will, I am sure, provide their British allies the cavalry support that they lack.
Yes they are a lot of fun, aren't they?
Your conversions work really well Mark...As bullet magnets go... they are the prettiest I’ve seen in a while.Although from my experience they are kind of troops that could go one to win a battle single handed...All the best. Aly
Great work again on these, and I like the way you have included the copper mail on some of the figures for variety,
You can't see it in the images, but I even gave the command officer some copper or gilded armour on the back of his horse, after seeing some of the Mameluke armour in the Musée de l'Armée.
Real colourful looking chaps 👍
Thank Russ. Two more, slighltly less colourful, units are on their way.
