Re: V2 Turks

Brett ,I'm not sure of your logic .

Cossacks ...

Re: V2 Turks

I don't see how you can take away their lance . They had it . All the Ottoman cav used the lance to a greater or lesser extent "the Djellis' primary weapon was a long lance" ( W E Johnson "The Crescent Among the Eagles") "'the majority of the Sipahis ...were usually armed with 2 swords , a pair of p...

Re: Swedish cavalry help?

The Brunswickers are there because they look cool and deliver a lot of fire . If I take more Swedes and a gun battery the army becomes a vanilla of no...

Re: Swedish cavalry help?

True ,but it wouldn't have taken much to make it right grrr I looked at Blue Moons infantry ,they look good. I think the Swedes used a Russian cuirassier uniform ( pre-horse hair crest) so again I can use Blue Moon .The hussars were in mirliton and I already have some from my Rev War French I'm stil...
