I have been collecting the Britain's War Along The Nile range of Camel Corps toy soldiers and have managed to build up a force of 25 figures:

Most of the figures are "retired" and hard to find, so if anyone can point me to a source* for Camel Corps figures or if you have some of them and want to sell them, then contact me. I am only seeking the dismounted Camel Corps troopers and not the mounted versions.

27000 standing firing
27001 kneeling firing
27003 standing at the ready
27013 kneeling loading

Also 27002 kneeling camel

* (I've already tried most of the usual companies: Sierra, TreeFrog, Michigan Toy Soldier, Hobby Bunker, Minuteman Miniatures, among others)

I also have 60 of the York & Lancashire regiment figures as these seem to be a lot easier to find:

Jim I don't know if you've tried this, but the owner is a good guy and might be able to help you.

Have you tried "Bartertown"?

And finally, lots of plastic soldier collectors also collect metal (like me).
Try some of the plastic soldiers pages on Yahoo.
This is probably the largest and can lead you to others.

Good luck! I'll keep an eye out for you.

Funny thing about "Britains".
Way back in the last century in the 70s, a friend publishing a Diplomacy zine asked me to write a review of suitable figures for D&D. It seems that in New York, using figures was a heathen thing.
I mentioned some Britains plastic animals.
In every case, he turned the name to British. I had a few words with him about editing my prose.
