Ottoman Faction Released!

Postby Lord Braindead Colonel » Sat Nov 03, 2007 1:05 am

Hello. Last week you had a small glimpse of the great work Lady Meg has done with the Kingdom of Sweden. But, even though we should have known better, the next release will contain not 1, but 2 factions. So without further ado, here is a small preview of what I have been working on?

THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE
Image

Quite some time had passed since Suleiman the Magnificent laid siege to Vienna, and while the art of warfare has advanced in Europe, the Ottoman army was still a semi-feudal body, lacking modern organization and training.

Image

The greater part of its infantry consisted of janissaries. Formed in the mid 14th century they were slave-soldiers, recruited from among the Christian children of the Empire. Their tactic was to fire their musket and charge into battle with sword and pistol.

Image

Attempts to modernize the army were made by Sultan Selim III (for which he paid dearly in the end, as in reaction the janissary corps revolted, and in the end he was strangled). The Nizam I-Jedid were created, the troops of which were trained and equipped according to European standards.

Image

The ottomans also had a variety of cavalry troops, among which the famed mamluks of Egypt. (I?d gladly show you them, but I haven?t made them yet, so here is some deli cavalry instead).

Image


The Ottoman artillery was the only branch of the army that welcomed the reforms. In the end its men were well trained and brave; unfortunately they usually were supplied with low-quality gun powder.

Image

This is just a small preview, there is yet a lot that has to be done before the ottomans are ready, and of course everything you see here is still WIP.
The Lordz.

MAMELUKES............... :shock:

Image

Imperial Guard Mamelukes would be the icing on the cake. I know the French already have many cavalry units already ... but come on look, they're Fabulous.

Fine work Lordz I applaud you ..... don't forget the icing on the cake. :D

If you would like Imperial Guard Mamelukes to be the next troop type created for the Ottoman faction, please send your brides, er I mean donations directly to BDC at his beach house in "some exotic island location*.

No, but one could include them anyway, because of the War of 1812 between Britain and the US. (Furthermore the Ottomans were not a big fish in the Nappy Wars :P ;) )

Therefore I support Col. Washington: USA would be a possible future project. (If only you Lordz are willing to include them, that's your choice, of course :) )

The Guard Mamelukes would be for the French :D .
BRIDES,BRIBES,DONATIONS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

I'm sure the Sultan has many lady's to send from the many Harem's. HEHEHEH not sure if they're bride material though. :shock:

As we are currently invading Portugal in campaign in [N] im sure a bribe/donation can make its way to the Lordz coffers. Just let us shakedown a few Portuguese mayors. :lol:


I agree a US faction should not be made as they didn't feature in the European theatre. Empire is on the horizon anyway.

Well, you could say the same for the Ottomans. :P
But of course you are right, de jure the Ottomans did participate in the Nap Wars, but de facto not actively in Europe.

That is quite incorrect, the ottomans had wars with the Brits, Russians and Austrians in the mod's period.
Thanks in advance!
