Hi Richard, I didn't bought the RTW sets at the time they were produced, but I kept an eye on them for a long time. I've found 4 sets at an expo recently, that awaken the completionist in me and then the hunt for the others begun. It took a while and 3 orders from different sources, but I've been lucky enough to get them all and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. I'd like to use the figures for a Commands and Colors variant, so the officers would be mandatory, but I know there's actually zero chances to see such a set produced and I should consider some conversions. Well, it doesn't hurt trying to ask. Maybe I should add to my request some "Please Strelets, pretty pleeeeease!!!" :smile:
you may consider this set:
As you can see, it contains commanders sprue.
Thanks! Not what I was hoping to hear, but a good starting point for conversions nontheless, if only for the turkish army.
The company "Model Hobbies" is still showing a number of sets from this war - If this is of any use.
This is where I bought some of mine.
I got my Turkish Commanders from the Crimean War Thin Red Line set:
Russian Commanders from the Crimean War Russian General Staff and Hospital set:
May have also used the Officer figure in the WWI Russian Infantry in Summer Uniform set :-)
