From DaveD - Hump time (330 points)

Time for more camels, lots more camels.Here i present you the latest additions to the mahdist armies. There are 24 Perry camels and rider, and a further 9 I think are old Hinchcliffe castings - these have also had their spear soldered in place. The Hinchcliffe casts are old school chunky alright and I reckon one weighs the same as two of the Perry ones! So its 33 camels and riders for the Mahdi. Altogether this takes the mahdist camel forces to 82 in total. I was not going to do it - but 100 is such a "nice" number. I have a wargame show coming up so will be on the look out for reinforcements . This entry also puts me over half way to my challenge target .. over the hump!







and of course you wanted to see the all the Mahdi's camel troops don't you



MilesR: 33 Camels and riders?  This is a submission that feels more like it should go out on a Wednesday, not a Monday.  Get it "Wednesday cause it's "hump day" - I slay me.....

Wonderful minis - your Mahdist army is growing to a staggering size!

  5. TRAIN TO ZONE! CHOO CHOO . (Everquest players must remember the OOC shouts from BB!)
    That is quite the FLOCK of camels (I looked up the collective nouns for camels). By the way it is a "Bloat" for Hippos.. not sure I will ever find a use for that one though!
