More Ottoman Turks

With a game coming up against Mick and his Russians, I found the impetus to complete the last of the mounted figures for this army. They're still a handful of infantry to sort out.

So here is the last regiment of Sipahi.  Like the last unit I completed, these are the old Mikes Models. I loved painting these and tempted to get more. I again went for a slightly regimented look, sticking to red and white.

Lastly was some additional commanders to lead the army. These are a mix of Mikes Models and Roundway figures.

So that just about completes the army. Made of the following horse:
10 regiments of Sipahi 
3 regiments of Beslu
6 regiments of Dellis
4 regiments of Wallachians 
2 regiments of Akinji

The infantry is less impressive:
7 regiments of Jannisarries
7 regiments of Azabs
1 regiment of Tefuki
10 regiments of Irregulars.

I think I need some artillery.
