Unfeasibly Miniatures have two new sets for their growing range of late 19th and early 20th century soldiers fighting in the deserts of Northern Africa. Camels and a Slave Market Scene are the newest additions…
These wonderfully relaxed camels have been given traditional saddles used by the Méharistes and Tuareg Berbers during this period of history. You could use these as a patrols pair of mounts which they need to rush to before darting off to alert their allies.
Next up we have a Slave Market set which is based on artwork by Jean-Leon Gerome. It pictures a Taureg Berber Prince considering buying a slave girl from a trader.
You can see the artwork here below. They’ve managed to capture each of the characters from the scene particularly well. While it isn’t exactly something you’re likely to see on the tabletop very often I do appreciate the accuracy.
If nothing else you could take the Prince from this set and use him as a leader in your games while the Slave Trader could make a good NPC in a pulp gaming adventure.
What do you think of this period of warfare concerning the French Foreign Legion?
Let us know in the comments.
