From ClintB: 20mm Arab Revolt Camel Riders (48 points)


From Clint: 
Adding to the Arab forces for my Arab Revolt 1916-18 game here are an extra 6 camels and riders.
They are once more by IT Miniatures and 20mm in size, mostly rifle armed, although 1 carries a sword in his hands for some close in work.
I only have a few left to do before the Arab force is complete for the game so there will be fewer camel submissions from now on, and no I do not have any dead camels for the casualties round.

No! Don't stop the camel entries - I love them! Well, I don't LOVE them (eww!) but I always like the look of the ungainly, doe-eyed blighters and you've really hit your stride with these fellows. Lovely stuff.

These half dozen 'ships of the desert' will give Clint 48 points. Great work!

  3. With all these camels, your house must be beginning to smell a bit pungent Clint! Lovely work again.

    1. Thanks for lowering the tone Tamsin. It almost smells as bad as having so many unwashed pirates in a confined space.

    2. You're welcome!

      Smells almost as bad as unwashed pirates? Let me tell you something - those camels don't even come close to smelling "almost as bad" ;)

  7. Sounds like you're over the hump when it comes to painting camels Clint.

    [Ahem] I'll just get my coat...

  8. Thanks guys Alas the camels are coming to an end. I will do one more camel entry and then there will be no more for the rest of the challenge I think. I will be looking at doing a few games set in VBCW with them as well as the Arab Revolt. So they will get some outings on the wargames table.

    Thanks for the comments as they have driven me onwards. Assuming I am able to enter next year I will need to think about a theme/game ahead of time.

    All the best Clint

    1. Thanks Sean. I have issued a side challenge to Loki (Andrew Saunders ) for next year assuming we can both get involved again. But not about Camels and I will be all cameled out by next year

  12. Very fine, Clint. Some wounded camels would be fun, as mentioned by Dave D!! However, these look tremendous for right now!
