Ottomans v Cossacks

Hi Gents
Still really busy on the work front but came home tonight and took a few pics to unwind. The Ottomans are part of a collection that I am doing for the siege of Malta but I am going to extend them to cover the Siege of Azov campaign and wars against Peter the Great of Russia that's the great thing about Ottomans they span many century's with only minor changes in dress.

Ottoman Sultan
Ukrainian Cossacks

More fine work by Dave Jarvis

I mixed in a few Perry Turkcomans

I finished basing these last night still have a mountain of figures to do though
These figures are part of a collection bought fro Phil Olley a number of years ago

Still hundreds of these to be painted

More of the Cossacks.

Malta 1565 Marauders

Hi Gents,
A few pics below showing some unpainted additions to this collection.

Brother Vinnie Marauders

I wasn't sure how these would mix but once painted they will be just fine

Plenty of character  with these figures

Another pic showing the size

I have been busy on the collecting front for this collection

Also been doing a few conversions

This one started out as a Perry retreat from Moscow figure

Be interested in how it paints up

A couple of drummer conversions in the centre

I am going to finish the bases over the Christmas break

First Tercio beginning to take shape

1565 continuation

Hi gents,

Been quiet on the posting but still busy with the figures one of the chaps over at the Laf forum asked for some close ups of the Foundry WOR figures which prompted this shot along with the arrival of a new batch of figures from Dave Jarvis.

A couple of conversions mainly head swaps but see if you can work out who the drummer boy started out as?
A pic for Akbar of the LAF Foundry WOR figure pikemen

Another head swop this time on a Warlord figure
Another shot of the Foundry figures I didn't realise there were so many variations

Another couple of head swaps
Still got the bases to complete a recurring trend

Group shot of the conversions

About to become an amputee
Hoping these pics help Akbar

Still a lot to add to this collection

The head swaps were fairly simple to do

A few figures as they should be.

A Foundry sea dog figure

Foundry musketeers these really have stood the test of time I first bought these in my teens.

Dave has worked his magic once more.

Mounted Captain from Warlord
