Ottoman Infantry
« on: February 28, 2024, 08:39:14 AM »
My latest blog post is on the start of my Ottoman army for the Khotyn 1621 campaign.  You can read about the approach Im taking for the infantry, including a revised painting technique, here:

Really nice. The new painting technique is very successful. It's nice to see Janissaries other than in full dress uniform.

Thanks, Paul  :) .

I expect I will eventually have some fancy Janissaries, but I like the idea of having most in their rougher campaign dress.  :D

Yes. It also allows you to use some of the lovely 'Islamic' figures around, which I personally prefer to the figures available for Janissaries in full dress.

Quite inspirational. I've been thinking of early 17th century Poles and Ottomans ( plus Swedes), but will almost certainly go 10mm. What ruleset do you plan to use for the period?

Many thanks, Grumpy, SJWi and Sparrow 👍.

@SJWi - I mostly use Pike & Shotte (Warlord Games) as it is the set I remember best  :D .  I think some more tweaks will be needed for Ottomans - well see after more games.  I also really like For King & Parliament, Twilight of Divine Right and The Warre Game. Ive got lots of other sets that look interesting, but not played them yet  8) .

I am finding the Sweden, Poland, Ottoman, Muscovite, etc. conflicts absolutely fascinating, so I would heartily recommend it.  :)
