We are releasing multiple sets of Ottoman cavalry to cover the Empire's troops from the late 16th to mid 18th centuries

Full story here:


Some of the dozen or so shots from the full article:

Nice. A few of these might even be usefull for the armies of Suleyman in the early 16th cnetury.

I imagine some of those could be used as Mamelukes of the time of Napoleon's invasion of Egypt?

I am sure. The dress of each figure is chosen carefully to be accurate and to span the widest period possible. Unlike western armies there was no dress regulation for Ottoman cavalry and so the items of clothing span a very wide period.
Suleiman I am sure would have recognized these lads.

Hi Jocknroll these are gorgeous miniatures indeed: some of them are representative of the Akjinci light cavalry of the XVI /early XVII C or Sipahis cavalry of the late XVIII period when most of the armour had been abandoned. My question is then if armoured cavalry riding partially/complete horse armor /barding will be produced as well. It appears that the bulk of Ottoman Rumeliot and Anatolian HC of the XVII /early XVIII C was still wearing armour and the typical Cicak elment in many variations and armed with sabreas and lances as fire arms were considered not proper for horse fight. These would fill in the existing range nicely providing also Sipahis of the Porte elite cavalry Thank You and Best Regards
