More Ottoman May!. Did these over three days. Started on the 3rd, even the horses, done in oil paints dried much quicker on the radiator). One unit of Sekhans (2nd Rate), three units of Sipahi Cavalry and an army general Base. All 15mm Old Glory, based for Shako II. The Sekhan should be Light Infantry and only operate in Skirmish, but I have figures for skirmishers to be done later.



Sekhans




General, now with his personal standard!


Sipahi, irregular horse.


More Sipahi
If it isn't enjoyable, it isn't gaming!

Are the command figures you have pictured with your Sekhans included in the bag from Old Glory?

Today's 15mm Ottomans. All picked up from B&B over the years. The Bombard/ Mortar and a few other guns came with about 30 of this type of crew. Will probably never use it but had to join the army. The Turkish Militia unit are actually 18th C. Scots. I have based them like this as they are an Unreliable rabble, like the Bazi Bazouks. All based for Shako II

Knocked these out today. Done as Albanian Light Infantry, 15mm Battle Honours Zouves in disguise. Based for Shako II. Also found in the lead stash, some Cavalry that will work for Armoured Sipahi lancers, also some Arab & turkish light Cavalry.

The Ottoman Ortas roll off the line. This time the first unit of Bazi Bazouks for the 18th C. 15mm Old Glory, I used block painting with brown wash on these. not too much time on them as I expect they will never be on the table for very long! based as Unreliable troops for Shako II.

More Ottoman Ortas roll off the line. This time the another unit of Bazi Bazouks for the 18th C. 15mm Old Glory. And a lancer unit of unknown make (B&B, I think these are Persian, revamped). All based for Shako II. And the next units, Another Bazouk unit, another Lancer unit and two light Cavalry bow armed units.

Splendid !

Some years (decades ?) ago I started a 15th century Ottoman army for DBR.
Using Essex 15mm.
Never quite finished it.  Time passed.
Started up again... And my painting style had completely changed.
So I bought a bunch of OG 15mm replacements, many of which I can see in the photos above.
And have, slowly, resumed production.  Except now it's an 18th century army.

Ottomans require a special kind of commitment.  Sort of like Ancient Persians.
The army is going to be big (=expensive) with uneven performance....
And not simple to paint.

Congratulations and carry on.

Thanks Major, it has all kinds of figs form the lead pile, there are some ACW Zouves, Colonial and Medieval cavalry in there.

Still not even half way through, but commitment is my middle name with projects!
This was my 15mm Persian army done 30 years ago and still fighting and growing


And my 28mm Saracen army, which has about 10 more units since this photo was taken

A mighty army worthy of the Sublime Porte indeed!  My compliments Phil Pasha.  May you drive the infidels to the gates of Vienna and have the dragomen tell of your greatness for a thousand years.  :D
