I now have enough Ottoman Turkish figures to actually play some games of our home grown Musket Mayhem rules as well as for the upcoming Pikeman's Lament rules from Osprey.
There are now 3 units of Janissaries, 2 units of provincial cavalry and an artillery piece. There are also a few commanders.

But to begin with, we are aiming at the campaigns culminating in the siege of Vienna in 1683. We chose this particular campaign as it is well documented, very dramatic and involved lots of different nationalities.

There are still a few units to add. I will add a unit of Kapiqulu Spahis and a couple of irregular infantry units, for example.
