28mm – Tercios Miniatures by El Kraken Released – Ottoman Sipahi.

Ottoman Empire XVI-XVII

My last entry in a few.. more things from Tercios Miniatures.
Honestly i don’t know what to think about this guys.. there are good and bad things.. the worst to me, some design problems on the riders.. horses are quite fine, and problems to fit the 2 valves of the dromedary..
As not an specially good metals painter, they have too much metal to my taste. there isn’t a single piece of fabric on the riders, all is metal and few leather strips here and there..
I like the lancers poses aiming to the opposite side.. but musketeers poses are some odd to me.. as well as the musket itself.. first time i saw them..
The worst to me, on the riders, are the disc plates in the chest and back.. many of them are distorted, not a circle at all.. some are curved.. some have the center as pin-out. some as pin-in.. , some are bigger, some smaller.. problems of the 3D design.. not corrected after see prototypes.. but that discs are one of the few elements you have to play to some decoration on that riders..
The two drummers are really nice figures, specially the one on the dromedary.. he’s so perfectly proportioned.. and the other drummer’s horse is really beautiful.
Well.. that’s all. Thanks for looking.
