I got my first sets last night. They are superb. The figures are fantastic. I hope that the team at Strelets really consider making new infantry sets for this period. Now I can't wait until we get the Pom Pom guns.
The artillery may pass. I would try using the krupp barrel from the 1877 Turkish artillery set. For the British figures, it would depend on how much you are concerned with accuracy. I plan on using the British for the Sudan also.
Thanks for your reply. I seem to remember a discussion here when the first masters were shown whether these might be Ottomans. Will decide after having a look at these figures when I get my hands on them.
