The camels have been painted in a range of colours but generally a darker colour than my Mahdist force ones. The British were forced to buy up as many as they could find to make the corps and a number of these were of poor quality and blood stock which from reading have been described as darker in colour.
Well if you have mounted camels - you also need dismounted camels and troops - see here we have a further 12 dismounted camels, and 3 foot camel holders.
These are all classic Connoisseur Miniatures - still by far my favourite camels.They are bulkier and have more presence the Perry ones and far easier to clean up.
The dismounted close order troops will be along shortly.
I recently picked up a copy of the classic work "Cassell's History of the War in the Soudan" - its full of primary sources and fantastic line drawings - its been a real inspiration
Oh wow, this is just fantastic Dave. What a stonking addition to your collection. I think the time you've put in to simply repose their heads has really paid off when you view the units in their entirety. I have to say the dismounted (reclining? at rest?) camels have to be my favourite. Their poses, with their long necks arching slightly forward, look so wonderful and I love the various muted colours you've given them. What an inspiring (and formidable) entry. Bravo!
This eye-watering 495 points will see you shoot up the roster. Well done sir!
