Old Glory Ottoman Infantry


The Ottoman Army has always been a favourite of mine especially during the periods of the 16th and 17th Century. Thus over the last year I have been rebasing a friends Ottoman Army so we can have a few games of Baroque with our other Baroque armies of the period. Recently I have just finished basing two new units of Ottoman Infantry from the very nice Old Glory 25's Ottoman range. These lads are a mix of Ottoman Armoured Infantry and Ottoman Infantry Handgunners. Unfortunately the Ottoman Armoured Infantry only have three different variants so a mix of both packs I think makes for a better looking unit. Leroy Simpson again has done a fantastic job in painting the figures.

The centre figures is the third pose for the Armour Ottoman Infantry 







In Baroque both units can be massed to give them a little more of a chance on the battlefield other than being just cannon fodder.

Lovely work, I'm tempted by the ottoman /Polish armies for this period and the old glory figures look pretty good especially in these photos!

Gotta love those Ottoman Turks! Trouble makers on a grand scale. One of my favourite armies too- so many opponents to fight. Nice figures!

Really nice figures - and nicely arranged at the bases.
