We have another figure resembling this Raisuni/Raisuli in 1924, two decades after the Perdicadis incident –in painting process at this moment.

Our new series of Arab/Berber cavalry miniatures in 28mm to face the French Foreign Legion is now available, and has a total of 7 packs (21 different figures) of battle-hardened Moroccan horsemen armed with rifles and swords, and with turbans, headscarves or bare heads, something somewhat unusual but that we do not resist doing to show the characteristic locks and braids of the fierce Berber warriors. The packs can be purchased separately or in the now traditional Premium Collection format, which, like the French Foreign Legion range, includes an exclusive movie-inspired figure, Sharif al-Raisuni. I hope you like them, Insha'Allah!

I think these guys would work very well for the Arab revolt. Not a perfect Arabian Arab look but close enough. If there were a few Camel options (instead of horses) it’d really make this range usable for the whole Arabian clashes in the early 20th century.

They’d also work perfectly for 1920s Spain in Morocco Rif War…same guys!

How far away in the sculpting queue are the (dismounted) foot arabs?

Superb sculpts and brushwork…👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Good..foot arabs/Moroccans are also an essential component ..to game, for example, that good  Revolt in the desert/TSATF linked scenarios campaign also rabble/foot  tribesmen with melee weapons only are required but they shouldn’t be armed, as for some scenarios and as some Old Glory references have, with spears! Only Tuaregs used spears, Berbers and Moroccans used only curved swords and knifes..
