Sneak Preview GWI008 , GWI009 Maniates /Islanders

New packs sculpting have finished from mr.  Stavros Zouliatis. Th new  miniatures with removable heads can be used either as Maniates or Greek Islanders , they were dressed  pretty similarly.
Ferocious  fighters and pirates the Maniates were coming from Mani Lakonia on the region of ancient Sparta . As for the Greek islanders  they were extraordinary seamen and pirates as well, a great number of them  served as crew members on the Ottoman fleet until the start of the Greek revolution in 1821. An additional pack  with additional heads is being sculpted right now,  that in addition with the extra weapons pack will help you to customize even more these miniatures.

What's up next  for the Ottomans; more irregulars? African infantry?

The current plan is to do Egyptian Regular infantry, they can be used for the Greek War of Independence and the Ottoman - Egyptian wars of the 1830s. For the future I will consider to do some Ottoman Cavalry and/or Egyptian cavalry. I am attaching a reference painting of the Egyptian Regulars of the 1820s-1830s.

Yes I have seen this website and it is a great source of information . My problem though is that my focus is the Greek War of Independence period  roughly 1821-1830. During that time there were no regular Ottoman units, they were destroyed after a Janissaries coup at 1806(if I remember the date correctly , it can be 1808). The first units of the second attempt of an Ottoman Regular army started to be formed on 1826 after the purge of the Janissaries from the Sultan. These units didn't not participate on battles with the Greeks , I think there is only one exception around 1828-1830. The Ottomans for these period used mostly Albanian Mercenaries  and Ottoman Levies located in Greece. The only regular units that took part on this conflict were the French trained Egyptian regulars that arrived to support the Ottoman and recapture the liberated part of Greece.

I will have to thank reminding the site though because I found some plates for the Egyptian cavalry that I was looking for.
