They are, indeed.

The pitty is that only cames 1 pot, and it could be useful for:

-dark elf blood calderoun
- for janissairs command stand
- For siege equipment, throwing boiling oil from the ramparts.
- For halflings hot pot conversion

Pendraken are remarkably good at providing custom orders, so it may be worth asking them for extra cauldrons.

Is the two-handed swordsman part of the command pack? He looks like one of the Landschekts?

Now realised that the 2H swordsman is an Empire Skirmisher for scale  :)

Yep, as I notice a request of GW figure in pictures for comparison reason I will use this figure from now in the catalogue.

I will ask Leon for more pots in my next order, thanks for the tip Forbes

Why on earth does this pack have a pair of blokes carrying a pot of soup!

Where the Ottomans big on it or something?

Because Janissars where childs paid to the ottomans as a tribute to be raised in the muslim faith as warriors. So they were paid with food. The pot was a symbol of the food that the sultan gave them reminding them the loyalty to him. Each regiment has a copper cauldron as a emblem.

Even the Janissars (elite troops) regiments have a chain of command based in cook assignament. The commander has the title of "soup maker" and sargents were known as "scoullions".

Indeed, and sometimes more fantastic than fantasy background
