Very nice!
Maybe they can work also for Napoleon in Egypt?…

What scale and which manufacturer?

Well it is far from clear, but these are on the League of Augsburg blog, so must presume they are 28mm and will be metal? Would be wonderful if they were plastic though. Huge conversion potential for early Mamelukes. This range covers 1630-1720 and seems to have some very nice figures already.

Well spotted

28mm – not sure about metal/plastic….

Sorry guys, metal not plastic.

Thanks for that. Still there does seem to be some interchangeable parts and I think some of them would make great opponents for Boney in Egypt

Most of these figures are excellent, but something appears to be seriously amiss with the proportions of the right-most rider in the third photo.

Never watched Game of Thrones?

What, are you expressing achondroplasiaphobia?. It is that his arms are too long, not his legs too short….

I think he is just riding with his knees drawn up. He looks fine to me.

These are lovely. And I would certainly use them for 1799. AFAIK, Ottoman costuming remained pretty constant from 1700 1800.

I wonder if these are compatible with the Brigade ottomans?

I initially guessed that they were Paul Hicks' sculpts, but the captions to the pics mention someone called "Clib". If so, will have to check out more of his work.

Been looking at those as well lately.

That might be the guy in a post above.

"Clib" is indeed Clibinarium.

It's a distinct possibility.

Yes, huevans011's explanation is indeed correct, his knees are drawn up, you can see him side-on in the first photo. Plus because he's not glued to the horse he's tilted over to the right slightly making the leg look shorter still.
More seriously the leftmost guy in the photo has a really long sword arm, but that was corrected as soon as the photos were examined.

They were designed with the early 18th century in mind (with specific reference to the plate in "Peter the Great humbled" from Helion), but may well do for later than that and indeed earlier, but that's for gamers to decide.

The demand for Hollywood style Ottomans will inevitably lead to armour and barding equipped releases too :)

Congratulations for some excellent sculpts!

I hope you took the Paul Hicks reference as a high compliment!

Thanks very much! And comparison to Mr. Hicks is very high praise indeed. He and the Perries are the sculptors I try to emulate.
