Mamelukes from Brigade Games Miniatures sneaked in quietly. A chance finding on an emailed advert tonight. I think they are new…stress think!

There is a command set and cavalry. Unfortunately the site does not let me copy images to post. The links below will take you to them however. I suspect these are intended for Egypt and certainly wear a much earlier rig than those from Gringos40. The troopers are ideal for Austerlitz though.

Odd and apologies. I genuinely thought I was posting to Products!

These look like Mamelukes to fight the French in Egypt rather than support them at Austerlitz. Nice figures.

I would agree the command set do look unlike what Napoleon admitted to La Garde and the context suggests that is the maker's intention for the range.

The troopers, though, wear the turban, the collarless shirt look, the flared sleeves etc that is just what was the look at Austerlitz and is something I called for before.

Indeed I tried converting two Gringos40 figures to achieve this using Tartars, one Mameluke head and a spare Perry plastic Mahdist head…..these look better.

Her name is Rio, and she dances on the sand…

Those would look great pillaging in the Balkans as well
