Having checked IMDB I see that the Arab chief is Sheik Abdul Abulbul. El Khazi was....well, it might make an objective marker, if the Legionnaires’ rations are off.

Good morning! Finally I had time to paint the codes that remained unpainted, and this is the result. Check the knapsacks, six different models in each pack.

Regarding your concerns about future expansion lines of the range, although as I explained it started as a "personal" project of our sculptor, for us it isn't a side project at all. Actually, the range had a great reception and we are planning how to expand it. First of all, with antagonists. Our sculptor is now working on TYW cavalry, then we'll back to the desert  ;)

Just a personal taste thing, but I've rarely seen Foreign Legion figures that got me very excited. Just not my thing, I guesss. Those kneeling guys, however, are an absolute exception. I love them! They are fantastic.

Even though they're not really my cup of tea, I really love the sculpting and the painting. Both of the highest calibre!  :-*

They look great. My only criticism is that I wish you had more variation in the clothing.They all seem to be addressed exactly the same and they were anything but uniform on a campaign.Otherwise the sculpting is very good also the animation.

These are awesome. Do all the minis (Command Group, Skirmishers etc) come with seperate knapsacks or are some moulded on?

Separate, but besides the knapsack straps, the figures' backs are designed to fit the knapsacks, so can't go without. However, we'll release some of this codes in light campaign order (without knapsacks) shortly.
