Just admired my Thouroughbred Miniatures 15mm Barbary Pirates unit of Zanzibari slavers.

Took two packs to make a great 21 man unit, with lots of leftover guys that are great as native artillery and such.

TSATF folk, you are crazy if you dont build one of these units.

They work everywhere, and can be native Indian banditti, African slavers, Muslim Rugga Rugga, Afghan adventurers, and basically over the top bad guys in any Colonial game.

A cornucopia of scoundrels straight out of a Hollywood B Lot.

Sounds great,Smokey--but I do them in Foundry!

Just looked at these on the Thoroughbred website, I really do need these.

Yeppers! AND you get enough figs for TWO native artillery crews! PERFECT for a Mahdist or any desert gun crew.

And they are MADE for dhows (They even sell a beautiful Dhow in resin)

If I can get Photobucket to work, I'll post pics.


These guys are a must have! Cant think of a TSATF scenario anywhere in Africa ME, India, Afghanistan, China, where they aren't a perfect unit.


This pack, and the Blue Moon Askaris, have given me so many neat units that really add flavor.
