Turkish High Command.





Having got my second battalion of Turkish Infantry painted I decided it was time to do a command group for them . Stretlets can be a bit 'hitty missy' on the rank and file figures but with command they are capable of turning out some very atmospheric figures indeed . Here we see Ali Pasha and his entourage  obviously inspired by the Fenton photo photograph of 1855 , his sycophantic Aide D' Camp serves him a cup of coffee, whilst his pipe bearer stands behind him , his rather rotund second in command is to the right. Click on photo to enlarge .
