Pike & Shotte brings yet another of the greatest military leaders the world has known to your tabletop. This time it’s the longest-reigning sultan of the Ottoman Empire. He’s Suleiman I, also known as Suleiman the Magnificent to Westerners. Along with figures for him, Warlord Games also has new Azap and Wallachian infantry.
Suleiman was very successful at expanding the borders of the Ottoman Empire. He made deep inroads into Europe, going so far as to taking Belgrade and Rhodes. He was, however, stopped at Vienna (very famously). Deciding to change directions, he worked at solidifying the Ottoman’s hold on the Middle East, doing battle with the Safavids. He also went into North Africa as far as Algeria.
