The one arm that was missing from my Egyptian forces was cavalry. I picked up a bag of lead in a swap a while ago and it had these figures from Castaway Arts from Oz. They do an interesting and unusual range of colonial items, and I like to use a range of manufacturers across the collection.
I decided to leave these with lances upright , and just went for simple solder the 0.8mm piano wire "lance" into hands and foot socket.
Lancers are always my favourite cavalry - you can't beat fluttering pennants making their way across the table.
