Hi all,

My gaming mates and I are preparing a long term campaign set in the 1714-1718 Ottoman-Venetian War, and I'm having a little trouble at finding suitable army lists for the Ottomans of that period.

The campaign is to be played at several different levels, depending on the kind of encounters and army sizes. We're foreseing that most engagements are to be fought by small detachments (so played at a skirmish level), while no more than a handful of big battles involving thousands of men are expectable.

So we need some kind of guidelines for building reasonable army lists for both engagement levels. If this can help, we're planning to use Musket & Tomahawk for tactical clashes, while Beneath the Lily Banners for big-big battles (hey! with some room for eventual naval engagements too, these using Galleys & Galleons).

Please could anyone help me anyhow?

Thanks a lot,

I compiled some basic skirmish level Ottoman force list as a request from a group of Donnybrook players.

Here it is:
