Camelry Unit, Red Hawk Clan
These 12 stalwarts are all armed with rifles and ready to smite the infidels.
Cavalry Unit, Red Hawk Clan
Armed with a mix of rifles and swords/pistols, these desert raiders can ride rings around the slow moving Egyptians. You'll notice that there is one dissimilar figure in the right rear. Since I only had 11 mounted figures, he was "drafted" to fill-in as the "12th man."
The painted infantry unit of the Red Hawk clan was included in my Colonial game at last year's convention. You can see it here: Red Hawk Clan Infantry
And a few words about the convention game: This game will pit a heterogeneous force of Mahdist, Beja, and desert Arabs led by the Agandar of Karres, one of the successors to the late Mahdi and the late Khalifa. They will be besieging the Eyptian supply base at Wadi Zoum-Zoum on the Green Nile. Coming to the base's rescue will be a British river column including Royal Navy landing party troops, Royal Marine Light Infantry, and gunboats. The game will be presented at the HMGS Gulf-South Bayou Wars 2010 convention in New Orleans on June12. Convention Link.
Well, back to the painting desk for another Arab cavalry unit and two more Arab infantry units.
