T-OTT05 - Djiveleks

By Napoleonic times a lot of the janissary orta (regiments) were quite large and in practice constituted a depot and pool of manpower. When a campaign was planned the orta would be ordered to provide a service "battalion" (often 1000 men) for the army.

Djivelek were janissary cadets nearing the end of their training, who often fought alongside the older janissaries. 

They were distinguished by a tall pointed yellow hat.

Do we sound erudite? Well it's thanks to Chris Flaherty's lovely book, The Napoleonic Ottoman Army: Uniforms, Tactics and Organization.

Six 28mm sized metal figures, supplied unpainted.
