The 18th Centry is well served and I've almost finished my French 7YW.

Next will be Prussians then Russians or Austrians but I've just noticed there are no Ottoman Turks  Shocked

Any chance of a nice Ottoman range? 

No hurry, end of the year would be fine  Wink

Dan - most of the Rennasaince foot would do, Janissarys didnt change much over that period, nor gunners and cav as far as I can see.

Really?

I didn't know they were that far behind the times.

Could be a very colourful army, I'll have to do some research, primary source for this would have to be Terry Gilliam's "Baron Munchausen"  Cheesy

Hi Dan,
the following website has quite a bit of info on the Ottoman Empire, so well worth a look IMHO.

http://warandgame.com/tag/ottoman/

I've also collated a load of images off the web on the Ottomans that show them from medieval times all the way through to the 19thC. It gives you a good idea of what may or may not be useful.

If you drop me an e-mail, I can send you an ODT file of them, or word if required. Address below:

I think a key difference was that they abandoned armour. Just use the lighter figures. Tatar cavalry became the mainstay of their mounted arm too, didn't it?

When in 18th Century are you talking about? 1730s-40s had some differences from later, due to French influence and training, although it didn't affect uniform/clothing that much

Janissaries would indeed be fine from the earlier periods.

I am looking at starting an Ottoman army for the Napolonic period to take on the Russians so any additions to cover this period would be good.
