It seems Michael stole some time from the eggnog and mince pies to complete these wonderful additions to his colonial Sudan collection.
After a wonderfully relaxing Christmas and New Year, I have finally managed to cobble together another entry and this time it is a welcome return to the Sudan. Mounted Beja on camels with spears and sword and a captured and shackled Egyptian Crew loading Krupp 6pdr with Beja overseer.

The Perry sculpts really are a joy to work with as has been said on many occasion, but they are a pig to get ready to begin with! Even after the customary clipping and filing, I still noticed extraneous flash and mould lines when I started painting - perhaps a bit more effort required on my behalf to begin with!
Painted, pretty much as you would expect, all accept the Beja overseer who has been given a rather natty blue waistcoat in homage to GregB's identical entry last year.
Lovely work Michael. I really like the camels and their jaunty riders but that captured gun crew is always a crowd pleaser. The fellow cringing with the rammer reminds me of how I typically feel by the end of the workweek.
These excellent models will give Michael 55 points, building up his lead in the Victorian-themed challenge. Greg, pick it up buddy! You're getting your pith helmet handed to you by these Brits!
