Sunday night I painted the last 8 tufecis skirmishers, and another officer. These figures are of course The Assault Group miniatures. I highly recommend them for anyone doing Ottoman Turks. the price seems a little high , but the quality is second to none, and shipping is free.
|The freshly painted Tufecis Skirmishers(TAG minis)|
|all 3 groups of tufecis with 3 officers in the lead.|
Next up i decided to finish off the 3rd group of Timarli Sipahis. these would be the feudal Sipahis. once again, these are The Assault Group miniatures.
|8 new Sipahis.|
|all 24 Sipahis in 3 ranks, with command in the lead|
I decided that I am going to field them in 3 ranks of 8 (each rank a group) because lets the Lancers make up the entire front rank, while the other 2 ranks are swordsmen. another interesting thing is that the musician is actually an extra TAG polish trumpeter.
I have eventual plans to expand the Turks with a unit of 24 light cavalry(haven't decided between Delhis or Akinjis), 2 unit of 24 Levent infantry and, after all that, unit of 12 Sipahis of the porte.
