T-OTT12 - Humbaraci + Light Mortar

The Humbaraci (Bombardiers) operated the Ottoman mortars and howitzers, and were a separate corps from the gunners, though the lighter pieces operated in the field alongside the guns. The very tall stove-pipe hat (cardboard covered in black sheepskin) is a wee bit distinctive!

Brass mortar on a yellow bed with black ironwork.

The Ottoman artillery often liked to operate from earthworks. Don't panic! Our Ottoman pioneers (T-OTT 11) - redoubtable fellows (yes, there's a pun in there!) - have been designed and will be out next week.

28mm sized metal figures, supplied unpainted.
