Re: Turks in Tropical Uniforms

Agree regarding the officer's headgear. A helmet or keffiyeh would be much more appropriate (and the sword is probably out of place as well, but that's easier to resolve).

Other than that, looks like it's going to be a smashing set, and I may have to buy myself some even though my WWI collection is exclusively Western Front at the moment.

Re: Turks in Tropical Uniforms

The officer wearing the Fez is one of my favorite poses. I hope this shows up on all of the sprews in the box. I plan on using him for conversions. There are plenty of photos showing officers wearing Fez's in WWI.

I hope there will be another set with all the soldiers wearing the Kabalak That style helmet looks so cool they deserve to have their own set.

The more styles the better for me!

Keep up the good work Strelets Team.

Re: Turks in Tropical Uniforms

Truly outstanding work! If Strelets wants to keep up the WWI Ottomans theme to supplement existing sets from a certain other manufacturer, you should also consider a set of cavalry wearing the kaffiyeh like these infantrymen. That was more common wear during the campaigns in Palestine and Arabia, and would provide perfect enemies to Lawrence's Arabs and the Aussie Light Horse.

Two other interesting sets to explore in the future would be Ottomans in winter uniforms for campaigns against the Russians in the Caucasus and a late war set of Ottoman assault troops with the rimless stahlhelms. The Ottomans in winter gear could include a ski trooper or two, as the Turks used them in the winter of 1916-17 with German advice.

That would be great indeed, especially considering the converion potential.

Re: Turks in Tropical Uniforms

Lovely figures with a lot of potential again.

Thanks for this first look at another very worthwhile set which will prove useful far beyond WWI.

Re: Turks in Tropical Uniforms

Very nice set. So many uses. Dare I say these men will join in on the derailment and attack of a Turkish train in a famous movie? Can't wait to see the rest of the poses!

Re: Turks in Tropical Uniforms

Those are seriously good looking figures.

The Turks in tropical uniform are excellent too.

Re: Turks in Tropical Uniforms

I'm looking at these and thinking of the two Mummy films.

And how useful these could be in Pulp fiction/Back of Beyond games.

Re: Turks in Tropical Uniforms

They look very good a set thats been needed for a long time, shame about the Rifles though, I hope the other figures have more appropriate types...

Re: Turks in Tropical Uniforms

Not only will these guys be involved with a Mummy, but my Airfix second edition and Esci / Italeri French Foreign Legion troops will finally have a worthy enemy.
