Janissaries.. the elite class of warriors from the Ottoman empire. And one, if not the only, group to wear actual uniforms as well. So it was only natural to paint them up first here for this little group.
Quite hard to paint up properly here though as they are mostly ( if not completely ) covered in red cloth! I broke it up a bit ( and probably broke the historical nature ) by making their pants black. To give it a bit of contrast and break up the monotony of the color here.
Hats were done up as cloth, with some slightly reddish gold color for trim and metal sections.
And here they are sitting behind their Galbions.. awaiting to pick off invaders trying to attack the empire!
Again a lot of fun, and quick to paint up in the end. More to come tomorrow!
