Thanks guys- I've parked this project for now.  I have painted all the Ottoman  figures I own and am looking to work through more of the pile of shame before committing to buying anything new

While going through some boxes I found a Figures in Comfort foam tray which contained 6 Horse archers from TAG. I painted these about 12 years ago and promptly forgot I had them. I believe that these are useable as Wallachian horse archers

The Ottomans are coming on at quite a rate and nicely too.  Those Wallachians look the part.  Bruno Mugnai says the Romanian forces were considered poorly equipped and unreliable, with bow armed cavalry the most common troops sent to the Porte.  They were brigaded with the Tartars and used as scouts.  There is an illustration of a Moldavian horsemen that is dressed in a red coat and feathered hat similar to those figures.  He carries a bow, sabre and green lance.

Trev I currently have no unpainted Ottomans so this project will be on pause for a while ( perhaps indefinatly given my present disillusionment with historical wargaming)

That would be a real shame but from our communications I can see where you are coming from mate.

Lovely brushwork BTW  :-*

I am down to just 4 unpainted renaissance gendarmes. I suspect that these are likely to be the last historical figures I paint in a while. I have around 2500 painted 28mm figures sitting shelves and gathering dust, I can't see the sense on buying more dust catchers.

I'm running out of space to put my painted stuff so I can relate. I'm not likely to stop painting as it's been such a huge passion for so many years.

Good luck with the Fantasy stuff and I look forward to seeing the final results George.  8)
