Which figures would you put these heads on? Would all the Turks wear these or just the OR's and the officers something different?

Yildiren Army Group in Palestine.  The Yildiren Army Group was German trained; about 6000 strong and saw service against the Russians and the Commonwealth.  German infantry and cavalry units were attached so itís an interesting army to recreate for Square Bashing. 

I like these sort of German influenced forces.

Can I bump this with a +1 for Turkish Stahlhelm, useful for adding a bit of variety to German Frei Corps.

Yes looking at the photo, might well be berlin street fighting which included the use of flame throwers against communist groups. If anybody is interested in the inter war/ post WW1 period. Osprey have just announced a heads up that next year's Campaign titles will include the Baltic states Independence campaigns, Estonia, Latvia, East Prussia, Poland, Soviet Russia.

Sounds good!

It's a fascinating niche period within a niche, an area of the larger Russian Civil War/ Polish War that deserves more attention, with great gaming potential. Hopefully people will purchase it and encourage Osprey to delve deeper, hats off to Osprey for their recent Polish Legions and now this! 8)
