Does anyone know the size comparison with Essex of the foot and mounted figures in the Early Ottoman Turk range? Are they compatible?

The only Donnington Ottomans I have are their artillery crew and I would say they are a pretty good match for Essex (though I am comparing them with a medieval figure rather than an Ottoman, but Essex are fairly consistent I think).

Yes, thanks for that. I have the 'new range' medieval foot and they fit fine with Essex. How are the originals in terms of quality. They seem ok from the pictures on the website, though the horses are not as good.

My Old Range Galatians are a very good match with Essex as are their Italian ranges. Donnington's Old Range was very consistent throughout so you should be good.

"How are the originals in terms of quality?"

Nice enough figures. The artillery crew have good poses and the moulds are still pretty clean. You might find that some of the figures where people would by dozens of the same rather than a handful have more problems with the mould Donnington warn this on their site IIRC.

There isn't much variety in pose with most codes I think.

ok thanks for the info. My idea was to mix in the Donningtons with Essex on the same base for variety so I wouldn't be buying lots of the same figure. For example, mixing in the Donnington Azab archers with those of Essex.
