The beginnings of my Dervish Army

Only a few Beja, just 70 added to another 30 I had already painted for my Mameluke forces. I've organised them into five units made up of 4 bases. I could have followed the Peter Gilder approach and varied the number of figures on each base but I decided to keep to five on each.



Figures are a mix of Waterloo 1815, Hat and a few Esci.



I used the same technique for flesh as before with a base coat of sand and then a wash of brown ink. Unfortunately as I had almost run out of the GW ink I had to make to with Windsor and Newton ink mixed in, which did not give as deep a colour.

Here's the originals I had painted back in 2007, now rebased.

Initially it'll be Black Powder, but I plan to use a variant of my Zulu Rules longer term, trouble is I'll probably then do more work on my Zulu wars figures!
