Carpets, anyone? Turkish flyers ...

Something of a cliche, perhaps, but irresistible all the same, are these flyers for the Turkish VSF army.... flying carpets.

The 'carpets' were made by gluing 2 layers of 40gsm card together, and coating heavily with PVA glue. They were then painted with fairly thick layers of paint top and bottom. The figures come from the ESCI Zulu Wars British infantry, with head swaps from the Strelets Turkish Infantry 1877.

Then there is the 'Cleric' - a man of mystery and magic (maybe even a 'Mad Mullah?) calling forth the Gods. The figure is one of the Strelets Artillery figures.

So here now is the army so far:

5 x Blade
4 x Shooters
2 x Artillery
1 x Airboat
1 x Cleric
1 x Hero
3 x Flyers

By my count that's 40 points.

.... just over half way to the Big Battle size.
