People want Tuaregs, Italwars. They look impossibly cool, even if they have nobody to fight.  :) And Imperial Romans vs. Samurai is a proud wargaming tradition.  lol

Unfortunatly you're true! ;) ;)
as for today i decided to be sincere..i confess you that if they would  produce those useless Touaregs i'll probaly also buy them to increase my useless Touareg's Army...but you'll never get evidence of that :D

I feel the same about the ever-popular Copplestone Seebataillon. Lovely figures, but so limited in actual historical deployment (in the depicted uniform of the models anyway), as to really not be worth buying. And yes, of course I have some (and some Tuaregs who have never fought anybody).  :)

I like these figures a lot.  Is anyone now carrying them in the U.S.?  Sadly, overseas postage has become increasingly dear.

And a follow-up question.  The "Beau Geste" collection has all of the codes for the full marching order packs; is it possible to purchase the full set of light field kit with the exclusive figure?

I've been thinking of ordering some. Does anyone know if 1898 figs would be compatible with Foundry or Old glory? Cheers, Jeff

I know their Spanish-American War line is smaller than Old Glory's.

OMG -- that cavalry looks amazing!  Perfect for the Raisuli's mounted troops when refighting the battle scenes from "The Wind and The Lion"!!!  I need them!!!
