Known affectionately by her crew as "Beeg Gun" this is just a single gun battery (although if I can find the manufacturer of the gun I might get another). The commander, Salami al Baloney is on horseback encouraging his crew. These figures are all magnetized on the bottom of the bases for storage purposes.  The commander is a Mameluke from the RSM Turkish line and the foot officer is a generic Turkish officer. The crew are actually RSM artillery and Rich told me that if I needed a limber, they just use the regular limber and swap out the limber riders for some of the Turkish cavalry riders. I may have to do that yet! The colors were selected to match the remainder of the regiment. I will probably give the artillery crew some paraphernalia but I couldn’t find the ziplock where I had stored it all (isn’t that always the case!)

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
