Nicely done all round!  :-*

 The Camel Corps is awesome! Great job you did there! Especially the last picture is very atmospheric

Those are very good Giles.  I like how you have managed to convey the square as well as the firing line.  The mounted column is grand as well.

I think the whole using the camels as cover business is a seriously dodgy concept, but it's a nice homage to the movie.  :)
