I'm thinking about a mid 18th century campaign for Maurice in 10mm but I can't seem to find any 18th century Ottomans in that scale. Do I have to use the 16th century figures or is there a better source here or elswhere for this army?
To my limited knowledge, I don't think there were huge differences in the style of clothing. But I may well be wrong.
Basically you will be OK with the 16th century troops but some are no longer used and many at this time have 'modern' weapons - i.e. they have ditched the lances/bows/armour/shield and now have pistols, swords and carbines instead.
I have an early 18th century army (more on this below) and the mid century army would be similar to this - see notes below. More of the 'old fashioned' weapons/equipment would be gone by this time and the army would have more of the Levend/Arnaut type infantry.
In any case here is what I worked on for early 18th century -
I am going for the following -
Sipahi: I will use the OT3 and OT4 packs for these. Basically at this time good troops have no/less armour and no/less 'old fashioned' weapons (lances, bows). So the elite household units (often called Sipahi of the Porte or Kapakula) I will paint over most of the armour and chop off most of the lances and as many of the shields as possible. For the better units (Europeans) I will similar but say about half. For the worst units (the Asian/Africans) I will leave them as they are or only 'convert' a few. I base my cavalry in groups of 5 on a base so I will have say 1 or 2 lances on an Elite base, 3 or 4 on an average base and all 5 on a poor base.
Tartars: The OT7 tartars obviously.
Moldovian/Wallachians: A mixture of OT6, YW4TYW Mounted Croats, P13 Polish Dragoons and STA14 Austrian SYW hussars - I will 'convert many of these - i.e. chop off plumes, lances , etc.
Segbans: YW4 from the Thirty Years War range.
Janissaries: OT9 and OT14
Levands/Arnauts: mainly OT13 with some SYA25 Austrian grenzers
Artillery: OT15, 17 and 18
