For the Mahdi

A little more progress on my colonial project. First up is 6 more irregulars with rifles to complete a second unit of Nile Arabs for the Mahdists.



I have also made a start on a 3rd unit, this time some Beja warriors. The first 3 warriors are complete. I have another 7 on the painting table, where I'm thinking of adding a little more variation to the clothing.


At some point I will have to decide whether or not to add some suitable tufts to the bases.

On the club front we have a potential move on the cards to a smaller premises, which is cheaper and we have our own lockable room, allowing games to continue over a number of club nights. Just need to see how the rest of the members think.

Multiplying in the dark, they are!
I'd definitely add some tufts

Nice work on these and I agree with Peter, a few tufts here and there would enhance the bases

More good work! I like tufts too.

I would think the tufts should be mostly on the tan/brown side "winter", "autumn", with a few greenish ones
