From ClintB: 20mm Arabs Mounted on Camels (80 points)


From Clint: 
These are 10 Camel Mounted Arabs by IT Miniatures WW1 in 20mm. I will be using them for a show game in June and if I get them all finished, in March as well. The game will be set in the Arab Revolt 1916-1918. Most people are only familiar with this conflict due to the recently departed Peter O'Toole and the film "Laurence of Arabia". 





These figures come in a mix of rifle and sword armed and a choice of standing or walking Camels usually supplied in a random mix. That being the case and as I will need between 35-50 of them in all I will have to vary the colours in later batches.

I saw the first test models of these and I'll say now what I said then: beautiful work Clint! I love the whole idea of this project. One of those, if he wasn't doing it I would scenarios. I look forward to seeing it develop over the next few months.

These 10 camel jockeys (wow, I can actually say that in good conscience) will give Clint 80 points. Well done!

  3. Lovely work indeed. I have to confess on hearing the news of Mr. O'Toole's death that I too was considering a camel based homage.
