Hi there,

Has anyone got a tips on tactics with Ottomans?

Once I have painted up a skirmish force, my first opponent is likely to be using Cossacks, and I can see those wagons being an interesting problem for my cavalry.

Is this going to be a hard macth until I get a force big enough for a few artillery?

Thanks

Root.

Ignore wagons and destroy the rest of the army ;) use all different types of light cavalry that You have at Your disposal to harass Cossacks and deliver final punch with sipahs.

Hi Kad,

I will give it a try - I have a first game arranged for next week (using other figures as the correct ones are still in on their way from Poland!).

I think this is going to be quite tough though, seeing as just about everything he has shoots as far, and better than the Ottomans. I suppose the one area where I will have a definite advantage is speed so that I can choose where to attack.

Well, - what's the worst that can happen.............

Root.
