    Icon3 Ottoman uniform samples and request

    I've seen the Ottoman uniforms on Empire, which are quite pretty designs I must add. But the colors and skins don't quite fit the images we find online. Could someone work on making better skins for the Ottomans?

    An excellent painting depicting Ottoman-Russian War of 1787. The front line uniforms are quite original.


    These look more like 16th or 17th Century than 18th Century, but they should give an idea.

    i don’t know if any of this will help but there are some awesome ‘late persian’ armour, shields, weapons and helms on this site [below]. they are from an earlier period, but some may still have been used for ottomans maybe?

    use the clone tool in your image editor [micrografx picture publisher is the best for this] to get the photo’s direct onto the skins for a very realistic effect!!

    edit; sorry i think they are too early

    Sorry, I didn't know they were off limits. Won't repeat that again. Thanks for the warning.

    Great news. When can we expect the initial skins?

    Sufi Band (a second military band in addition to Mehter Band):

    The role of religious orders in the Ottoman war engine is well documented. For now let's just mention the 'Seymen Alayi' made up of many Sufi orders such as Nakşibendis, Sadis, Rifais, Kadiris, Mevlevis, Bayramis and Bektaşis that participated in most Ottoman campaigns.

    A band (literally) of Soldiers from the Ottoman Empire march through a town playing music and brandishing their greatest weapon, the characteristic headgear of their religious order .
