Right then , off to splash some more paint around, there are one or two extra Beja lying around that need completing :-).
Stonking beautiful work Dave, though 20 years is a somewhat long seasoning period! As you say the riders are a bit anachronistic, but the overall effect of the unit, especially with those wonderfully loping camels poses, is just fantastic. Also, I like how pale you went with the camels' coat/fur/hides - mine, I believe, are a tad too dark and I think I may go back and lighten them a touch.
I look forward to seeing what else you excavate from your lead reserves!
