Fatih Sultan Mehmed / Altar modelling

Today I want to show the second figure of my first order from Altar modelling.

It belongs to the so-called, "Ottoman Sultans"-series.

After the final production of 3 fiugres in 54 mm. Mr. Abdullah Turhal began with a new line of 25 mm. figures, so-called "wargame figures".

Loyal to his "mission", "producing figures at world standards from turkish history" he had choosen Ottoman sultans as subject of this new line and IMHO he made a right choice.

In Spring 2009, 3 figures were released.

Sultan Bayezid (Thunderbolt),
Sultan Mehmed (the Conqueror),
Sultan Sueleiman (the Magnificent).

I ordered, Sultan Mehmed. The figure is packed in a beatiful box with a photo of a painted figure by Matt Verzani,

and an illustration from Jon Hodgson.

with a lot of information in turkish and english.


In the box there are 3 separated bags for the sultan figure, his horse and a sword with the shield.

The scupltor Uhrin Zsolt, was inspired by ottoman paintings and made a fantastic work.

  1. Hi,
    are they more in 1/72 or 25mm in size? I thought about buying them too but I am not sure about the size.

    cheers
