So I'm not tempted to have a ludicrously large British force I try to do equal points for both sides.
The latest project is a unit of Camel Corps. They mostly featured in the 1885 Gordon Relief expedition and were formed from a range of infantry retrained as mounted infantry, They feature quite a fetching blue-grey tunic which was quite distinctive.
I've currently done 12 infantry and some camels as cover / mounts. I'm pleased with the results so will do a further 12 to round out the units needed for Desert Column. I've also done my Mahdists tax and painted a couple of Ansar units to boost their forces.
