28mm WW1 Turkish Cavalry
« on: March 21, 2018, 06:05:19 PM »

Something a bit different from YG studios today.

It was about time I got some Cavalry for Mesopotamia, here is attempt No 1. Obscure figures from Minifigs of all people.

A nice addition to the collection but I will need a few more before they become useful. Wish there was more figures avaliable for WW1 in the East.

Só you’re with Hammers but you haven’t fucked? No need for an update. :)

Those Minifigs look rather good, I wouldn’t have guessed the figures’ provenance.

Very nice indeed Ken.

The lances look a bit long? Or maybe it is just the photo?

Nice looking unit! I see from your blog that you're looking for looking for other manufacturers
the only other ones I know of are Battle Honors from Old glory 15s

I only have their inf. and they fit in with woodbine oK just a bit smaller

Not necessarily for the Eastern area but Tiger miniatures make the Turks in the 1909 uniform. http://www.tigerminiatures.co.uk/USERIMAGES/100_1728.JPG

Yorkshireman to Yorkshireman, you understand.

I'm glad they don't make more / better figures. There are enough shiny drains emptying my wallet.

Nicely done.
