Akinji and Tartars.

 Well as I promised, I have finished basing more Turkish light cavalry, which are a combination of spare light cavalry from my mate John's collection and some repainted figures I bought from Rahul Sarnak. They have come up really well, and certainly will make a welcome addition to the Turkish cannon fodder, that is the Akinji and Tartar squadrons.




 These chaps are Minifigs with a couple of Garrison figures from Rahul's collection.

  4. Robbie,Thanks for the great viewing. I do like the Hinchliffe Akinji with large shields. but what make is that colourful commander on a half-barded horse? I am seriously tempted to gloss my Ottomans, your figures have a 'glow' which I like, in addition to superior protection. Michael

    1. Evening Michael,
      The officer is an Irregular Miniatures 25mm figure.
      Some people dont like gloss varnish, but I think its still the best way to lift the colours. By the way I intend to put on a Turkish wargame at the Stand To Wargames Show at the Railway Museum in Shildon County Durham later this year.

    2. Robbie, thanks for the info, feel free to mention any Ottoman wargames you are staging at shows on my blog, or I will attach a notice to one of my own comments. I think gloss also serves to bond very different makes and castings used in an army, which is always useful. Michael
