I'm still getting my Catalan Company army ready for the FoG tournament at HAVOC next weekend, and I've just finished a couple of units of Mirliton Turcopoles that I intend to use as its Turkish light horse component. I had hoped to use these figures as Turcomans in my Syrian States army at Cold Wars, but I didn't finish them in time. They will still serve that function when I bring the Syrians back out to play with, and I'm sure they will be part of whatever army I use in the "Terror of the Steppes" theme event at this upcoming Historicon.
Below is a photo of how they turned out:
I think these are great figures, like almost everything else that I have seen from Mirliton. They did require a little assembly since the upper torsos are separate pieces from the bottom, and the lances and shields have to be glued on. The two-piece torsos are nice though in my opinion, because one can then get some variety in the archery poses.
Although I love the Mirliton figures, I wish they were easier to get. I don't know of a U.S. distributor, and I ordered these from Venexia Limited in the UK. The order went off without any snags, but I still prefer not to go overseas if I don't have to. It would also be nice, given the quality of Mirliton figures, to see the ranges get expanded, but I don't know if that has happened at all recently.
Now to wait and see how these guys will perform for me at HAVOC.
