Egyptian Infantry in the Sudan

A last push and these were just completed hours after the end of the month. The figures are all the Stelets Ottoman Infantry in Summer Uniform 1877, but actually they are Crimean War figures according to PSR. The uniform is not correct so don't look to closely, but they look good overall.

The officers come from the Waterloo 1815 set

They'll be in action next week and hopefully they will perform better than history!

Ottoman (and Egyptian) uniform and flag details can be found on www.ottoman-uniforms.com

Nice flags, Will, where from??

Marfac70 - I use Black Powder dominantly for the Sudan, and most other C18/C19 games. My British are a mixture of Strelets and Esci.

Steve - I've added a link to a site with the flags

Hi Will,

a very nice idea. And from one meter distance you don't see the details of the uniforms:-)
