Here we have 6 large stands of Beja , one "ambush " stand breaking out the long grass plus one of Nile tribe rifleman.
These lads are a mix of Perry plastics with metal command and casuality figures plus two old school Connoisseur single figures for the Emir and solo standard bearer. This completes the last of the 20 boxes of Perry Mahdist infantry (well it will with todays other posts) - and also completes the target of 1000 foot 28mm figures in the army - there is a very big game in the offing.
Having done so many of these over the last few years I find it takes longer to de-sprue , assemble and base the blighters than it does to paint them.
For this lot I have also moved over to "large" 200x60mm bases as produced by that other megalomaniac Simon Miller (Big Reg Bat) . Experience from running some large participation games is its quicker and easier to move large bases - and quicker to pack up too!
Alogether its 140 figures with 1/2 point for the prone casualties it counts as124 full figures
MilesR: Another huge points bomb for this Monday - 124 figures is a massive achievement and all very nicely done. I tip my hat to you Sir. Since Tamsin's Nubians put me in a generous mood I'm throwing in another 5 points for the banners and superb basing, bringing you to a totals of 625 - wow!!!! I may have to try some of Mr Millers bases.
You must be planning a very epic game...
