More Turkish Infantry

These soldiers were a real joy to paint. Consisting of Minifigs S Range recasts from Old John, they are a mix of different ranges. The command group are from the S Range Turkish Crimean War range, while the soldiers are in fact S Range French Napoleonic Egyptian Infantry (F22). I am not keen on the infantry poses in the Crimean War series, which is why I went for these; besides, Egypt contributed several thousand troops to Turkey during the war and the uniforms appear correct. They probably should have a green flag, and I may produce one at a later stage. I really like these figures and I can feel the urge to purchase some more!





There will be a lull in production for the next couple of months as I am moving house.
