More info on an Ottoman army of the Napoleonic period

While being busy painting more Ottomans and Ingo promising me to finish the cavalry sets now I had the luck to get a collection of Military Illustrated magazines, the issues I missed in my collection.

In one of them was an article about the first Ottoman regulars. Exactly the figures Ingo sculpted for me:-)

I thought this might be interesting for you too,

In the meantime I am a step further which what my friend would call my interest in obscure subjects:-)

I finished reading Allan Mallisons novel "On his majesty's service" from the adventures of Matthew Hervey.
In this novel he serves with the Russian army against the Turks in the Russo-Turkish war of 1826-28.
Another interesting subject so to say:-)

I would recomment this to you. More action than in most other books from this series.


  1. Thanks for the article, excellent reading, and I'm looking forward to reading the Allan Mallison book

    1. I hope you enjoy it. In my eyes the best from the series so far.
