I did look a some of these images on the internet and my heart sank. These guys are colourful with the furs and feathers. Now I've never been able to get feathers right, especially on eagles and such like for fantasy games.
So this last week I took the plunge and started to paint the first 6 figures and then quickly moved onto the other 6. These guys were actually a joy to paint. Wish I'd done them sooner.
|First 3 squadrons|
|2nd 3 squadrons|
So that's 2 More regiments of light cavalry for my Ottoman army. I do have 2 regiments of Akinja to add to bring the light cavalry up to 6 regiments. Still not enough when I've got 9 heavy regiments with 2 more to paint. Think some Tartars might be useful additions.
