Napoleonic Turkish infantry

I am now at stage of two projects from my national history...One of them is Serbian Revolution, Battle of Mišar field...As I see Strelets ahs done good set of Mamelukes, that will help in achieving my goal...But for long time I have asked my self, why did nobody has done Ottoman Turkish Napoleonic infantry to be correct Asker infantry, since Asker is Turkish word for soldier...
I am sure that this set will most probably be one of quite well adopted sets among fellow model colectors...
If there is any interest that this set be produced, let me be informed on my e-mail...

Re: Napoleonic Turkish infantry

Hello Emperor,
Welcome to the Strelets Forum. I agree, I also would like to
see Turkish infantry from the Napoleonic era. You mentioned Strelets
Mameluks but do not forget set 109 Bashi Bazouks, even though this set
is listed for the Russo- Turkish War of 1877, you could most definitely
use them for the early 1800,s time frame.
I have seen your posts on Benno's Figure Forum, that is a nice diorama
that you are working on! This gentleman is working on a book about Ottoman
Empire uniforms, here is his website:

I hope it will be useful to you.

Good luck,

Paul K.

Re: Napoleonic Turkish infantry

I recently got the 'bug' to produce a Napoleonic Ottoman army and found this post particularly useful:

The suggestions from TelesticWarrior are great. There are plenty of sets from Strelets that fit the bill!

I intend to do a simple conversion of Strelets Turkish Infantry Set M066, cutting down the coat (and possibly adding some putty or paper) so that it looks like the 'puffy' Turkish trousers of the Nizam inf.


Re: Napoleonic Turkish infantry

i could never understand why sets for an ottoman army of the napoleonic period is not i understand it,the russians and ottomans of this time fought many very large battles.i really dont know much about these campaigns,but id be willing to collect sets and learn along the way.

Re: Napoleonic Turkish infantry

I would like to see Napoleonic Ottoman Infantry and Artillery done by Strelets to go with the Egyptian Campaign British and French.

Re: Napoleonic Turkish infantry

I agree. Don't collect or play the Egypt campaign or the fighting between the Ottoman Empire and Russia. However, would love to paint a few Turkish troops just for the fun.

Re: Napoleonic Turkish infantry

I really hope Strelets will produce some more Ottomans to go along with the excellent Mamelukes and Bashi-Bazouks Calvalry sets both suitable for Napoleonic wars, what we really need are as follows.

Ottoman Line Infantry (Nizam I Cedit)
Ottoman Light Infantry (Albanians)
Ottoman Artillery

Nizam I Cedit(New Model Army) can be seen on the superb Ottoman Website
