Rank & File 15mm Turks

I recently ordered a bunch of Rank & File 15mm Turks from the 1877 war, figuring they can also proxy for the Crimean War. Here is the first pack of infantry, given my basic wargame paint job. The infantry figure is really quite good with a sturdy natural pose and a face that a better painter could do wonders with. The officer is OK but not up to the ranker. The standard bearer is acceptable. I cut off the cast on flags and inserted brass rod for paper flags.

Here they alongside some of my Napoleonic figures from other manufacturers for a size comparison.

September 6: here are shots of the second pack of infantry, same pose, slightly different basing and brighter fez (no dark wash on the fez).
