First up is the last batches of foot troops , the final makings from the 20 boxes of Perry Mahdists.They are mixed in with metal casualty and command figures so 140 figures on 8 bases overall.

Next up has been the Mahdist river forces making an appearance with a raiding part on board
I am not sure where i picked the boat up from. It needed some work to fill in gun ports with milliput , but overall i think it works. I have added magnets to the base of the sail so it easily removable for better storage.
and yes more camels - lots more camels. With the complete clear out of the lead pile , 24 Perry camels and riders , and a further 9 "old school" Hinchliffe ones.
Altogether this takes the camel mounted troops to 82 figures , 27 bases worth - now 100 does seem like a nice "round" number to aim for - and with York wargame show coming up I feel a top up coming on.
I also recently picked up a Tinywargames arid playmat - just a 6x4 for now to add to the existing home made. I am pretty impressed with it , so took the opportunity to set out most to the Mahdi's troops (i forgot the rifle skirmishers , and had not finished the camels at this point) - so here is a quick video to give you the view of the size of the force available,
The last unit of cavalry for the Mahdi is now well under way and it will soon be time to add to the imperial forces again.
