Re: Ottoman Project

I've never liked Tufecki infantry. Always thought they looked weird and not very Turkish. Every miniatures range seems to have them (Warfare, Old Glory, TAG...) but I have never been able to find a reliable reference for them beyond the early 17th Century. I was interested then to see them illustrat...

Re: 17th Century Naval Games

Seems you have got your hands full on a modelling scale :D :wink: 1/450th Scale you say? Pretty large. You know those two Companies and their 1/450th Ranges I presume https://minairons.eu/en/76-1-600-catalogue - 1/450th is part of that and https://www.peterpig.co.uk/pirateships.html Yes, it’s mainl...
