Getting on well with my Sudanese

Beja

and Ansar skirmishers

I've got the rest of the ansar and the camelry sorted, but what about the cavalry and especially commanders?

I can use some Waterloo 1815 Emirs' as cavalry and also some of the new Strelets Mamelukes, can anyone suggest anything else?

What about some of the old ECSI Muslims. They has been rereleased from Italeri. Maybe you can convert some of the Mamelukes?

But I am no expert. But the first troops looks very nice. :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Very impressive !! :headbang: :headbang:
The cavalry is not so easy..for my Khandibarian cavalry I converted some HaT Numidian cavalry (head swops) and used some Airfix bedouins
Hat are missing an opportunity by not making a set of arabic cavalry, it would be usefull for a wide range of periods..also they should think about making some camel riders for the El Cid range.
