From DaveD: 28mm Sudanese Mahdists Tribesmen, Part III (343 points)


Dave finishes his dizzying dash to the top tier of the points roster with this, his third monster unit of Mahdists.

From Dave:
So here is the final instalment of the Beja mob. This time made up of 65 figures and 6 prone casualties again all 28mm Perry as before... Across all 3 mobs there is range of basing from 6 figures to 2 and a casualty on the bases. This is to give a a real random look to the units as I assemble them. 


OK, and here is picture of them all together.

With my existing Beja force which is half that size, I have almost enough to do the Mahdist forces for El-Teb late this year.

Wow. Just wow. Between these three successive entries Dave has completed 236 figures in, what, a month's worth of work? Amazing. Dave, you thought you were in a painting funk at the start of the Challenge. Well, we certainly sorted that out for you! Brilliant work my friend.

This last horde will give Dave 343 points, bringing him in range of the top three in the points roster...
