Napoleonic Ottomans & Warlord Sale
A well done Ottoman Army during the Horse and Musket era is quite a sight on the table top. It's something you don't see too often, and something I've long dreamed of painting up as part of a future Seven Years War project. For some reason I never considered them an option during the Napoleonic Wars, but a pair of wonderful looking battles over at the Lonely Gamers blog reminded me that the Russians were fighting the Ottomans during Napoleon's day as well.
I just had to share some of the pictures, but I'll let the pics speak for themselves. Be sure to click on the links to see the two battle reports that feature many more shots of these very well painted Russian and Ottoman Napoleonic era armies. Inspirational stuff!
Finally, just passing along that Warlord Games is having a sale on their Hail Caesar, Black Powder, and Pike & Shotte rulebooks. Until February 1st, they're offering roughly a 33% discount on these books. I was already looking at picking up Albion Triumphant (Not on sale, too new.), but this looks like a great opportunity to finally grab Pike & Shotte as well. I'd love to get Hail Caeser too, but probably not this time.
