in the ptolemaic army. I need some. I've seen the illustration in Sekunda. I'm not sure anyone makes figs like that in 28mm?

I'm wondering if anyone makes figs that look like the Nubians sent to kill Cleopatra in the HBO Rome series? I'm not sure those were actually supposed to be Nubians – I'm just guessing here – but I love the look.

Suggestions?

Can you post some pics, or links to pics, of what you are looking for?

All I have is a youtube link:

I found this image with Nubians in Ptolemaic service

The guys in the video could be easily made with Numidians/early moors or Mahdists, you would just need to make some hair on bald heads.

Check out Ephiopian Colonial range from Castaway Arts. Gripping Beast made similar figures in their Late Roman or Desert Frontier or Berber ranges, not sure they still make them. Check out Fuzzy Wazzies in many ranges like Perry, Old Glory or Essex Colonial Sudan ranges.
