Bashi Bouzuks could be useful from the Napleonic period up to the colonial wars.

What do they look like? (I know I could probably google them but this is easier and may well be more reliable).

Hi Jonathan,

they were a mixed bunch of original Balkan and Turkish origin. So the dress was the same as for example Albanians in the 19th century.

So you could use Zouaves to paint them, while for horsemen it would be much more difficult.

Take a look at this link:

It would give you a little idea about it.

Ral Partha has a range of 25mm figures, which are true 25, so exact 1/72. You can get the figures from

They have two Bashi Bouzuks, sadly the photos are bad. Maybe I should search mine out and send a photo to Strelets for the Contribution page?

I hope this helps.
