In a Janissary style ....

As part of my 40mm sculpt and cast project for my 17C armies, I had a spare slot in a mould and decided to use it for a 'fantasy' janissary (see the green for it here). The mould turned out well and I've cast up a unit of janissaries. Some castings have been modified to make up officers and a standard bearer.

Currently in progress is a drummer and a mounted officer...
These chaps are most likely going to be added to Wittenberg's friekorps, although I have another idea for them - more at another time if the concept comes to fruition.


  1. It's always nice to see Janissaries in a 18C army. If Saxony could have a full size unit then almost anywhere else is closer to Istanbul, even Wittenberg. Will you have the chaps with the frying pan?

  2. These homecasts are excellent..... looking forward to seeing them finished.

  3. These look great. I admire you ability to homecast. I wouldn't even know where to begin.
