Egyptian cavalry for the Sudan (C19th)

Posted by Ochoin on 23 Jun 2017, 08:55

I'd really like to add a unit of these to my Anglo-Egyptian Field Force:

Any idea if there's suitable figures? They be dressed in white, red tarboosh (as per the Egyptian infantry) & with lances.

Yes, they look fine!

I'll have to track down a box.

Maybe adapt the HaT Egyptian camelry, if you have spare horses:

Camels could then be converted into baggage beasts.

(PS: I have the riders going spare if they're any use to you - their camels were stolen by thieving arabs....)
