Imperial Camel Corps

Perry Miniatures Sudan Camel Corps figures with Woodbine heads to create a representation of the Imperial Camel Corps that served as part of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force in the Great War. The purists among us may wince to see the older 1880s equipment, but I've seen photographs of this still being worn so I can live with this. Stirrups on camels on the other hand....
Well, as gaming pieces they pass muster on my opinion.

Another splendid job, love the work on the camels particularly and once again the basing really ties everything together.

Very impressive work.

OK, I have spammed your email enough for one week, but I just came across this and thought you might find it interesting considering your latest painting here.

From the dedication:

"To my Camel

You're an ugly, smellful creature
You're a blot upon the plain
I have seen Mohammed beat you,
And it gave me little pain.
You're spitefil and you're lazy,
You'd send a white man crazy,
But I reckon you're a daisy
When the Turks come out again."
