my issue with the Ottoman's is that nobody ever wants to face them using the type of army they would have fought ie lesser grade line and militia. They have to have their guard and heavy cavalry and it makes the games unplayable

otherwise they make a visually awesome force

Are these 28mm or 18mm? If 18mm and not AB has a new Anthony Barton been found?

At £8.50 GBP a pack, I suspect that they are 28mm

Hmm. I fought an Ottomans vs 2nd line Napoleonic Austrians this year. (Not my idea: it was the regular game of the 19&1 Napoleonics people in Indianapolis, and they had a decent house--maybe 10 players.) Austrians were mostly grenzer and Hungarian insurrection units. It does take careful scenario design, though.

There are other options. Cluttering up the board works greatly in the Ottoman favor. But I think the most historical is to tighten the tactical focus. Ottoman forces seldom fight big battles against European powers in this period, and there's a reason. But they do pretty well at convoy-bushwacking, other forms of ambushes and foraging party fights--perfectly legitimate horse & musket warfare, but a lot of the fashion these days is for battles at the top of the scale--Wagram, Borodino or Leipzig. I'm happiest with a brigade or so, myself.

Warfare Miniatures, so plan on having a bunch of different figures and poses. They are 28mm figures.
