DBN Ottomans

Beat the War Drums! Blow the Horns! The Mighty Orrible Ottoman Horde is here!

I've been busy since our DBN Russian vs Ottoman scrap..
http://mrfarrow2udba1519k.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/dbn-battle-of-slobozia-1806-russians-vs.html

The existing Ottoman army has been reviewed & re-built into a mighty Ottoman Horde!  As per normal, a few new bits, some existing bits, a few new paint jobs, some new flags, all finished off with some magic basing.  A whopping 38 bases of Ottoman power ready to give the Armies of the Tsar a sound bottom spanking...lol

Sharp eyed viewers will notice no Jannisaries, they are being re-fitted as we speak.  Piccies when they are ready.  Banners are from EBay, a company called Wargames Designs  www.wargamesdesigns.com

MIGHTY SULTAN!!!!

The DBN rules suggest the following Ottoman list. Most will be classed as 'Militia', cost only half a point.  Given your standard army is only 12 points, potentially a whopping 24 elements.

0-1 Ms (Bostancia - Guard)
2-4 Ms(M) (Janissaries)
0-1 LI(M) (Light Infantry trained Janissaries)
0-2 Ms (Nizam-i-Jedid)
1-5 Ms(M) (Sekhans - Irregular Provincial Militia)
0-2 Jg (Rayas - Skilled Peasant Huntsman)
0-2 LI(M) (Derbents – Local defence militia, often Mountain Bandits)
4-10 LEM (Fellahin - Mass Conscripted Peasant Militia)
0-1 HC (Suvarileri – Regular Guard Cavalry)
0-4 LC (Suvarileri – Regular Line Cavalry)
0-2 SC (Suvarileri – Regular Skirmish Cavalry - Sipahis of the Porte)
0-5 LC (Mamelukes - Highly Skilled Light Cavalry)
2-4 LC(M) (Sipahis - Militia Cavalry)
0-4 IC (Yoruks or Arabs – Similar to Cossacks)
0-1 SC(E) (Djellis – ‘Crazy Heads’ Trained Irregular Scouts)
0-1 HA (Regular French trained Horse Artillery, but after 1808)
1-3 FA(M)
