Tally Ho!

Ottoman reinforcements

Despite a lockdown of painting I found myself short of some cavalry for the Ottomans. I was looking to add 4 squadrons of Kapikulu, the household cavalry units that were effectively the mounted equivalent to the Janissaries Corps.  

They are often depicted as riding barded horses in all metal armour, so a little anachronistic but easy to paint! I've gone with Gripping Beasts late Roman cataphracts and done 2 boxes to give me my 4 squadrons.  

The basing means that they could also be used as a Knight Horde in Kings of War if needed with the addition of a sabot base.

  1. looking good Stu, the colour lances and tack really work well against the armour.
