Prolly old news but Armies in Plastic are practically giving away their camel sets. 3 buckaroos a set. Sale is thru 6/15 Inquiring minds wanna know :)

That's 3 buckaroos for 4 (YES 4!) camels. 54mm.

They have been on sale for a number of months. I came up with a $300 USD order, then stopped myself. It is an amazing price.

I must be out of my cotton-pickin' mind.

Upon seeing this post, I followed to AIP and bought a full 20 man British Camel Corps unit, with 20 matching foot, a camel mounted Screw Gun and crew, and four supply camels for some $37.00 USD.

Gawd Noes when I'll ever get to painting these, much less fielding them against a shelf load of Ansar and Jihadiya, but these prices are absolutely as crazy as I am!

Slap me, someone! Slap me!

That's an awful lot of camels, 79th.

It was camels, infantry, guns and camels.

Thats the spirit, TVAG.

I have a bunch of camels from AIP already and I'm really tempted to get more at that price.

It's almost a crime not to.

I bought more…. I now have far more figures than I will ever need (paint?). But they are really nice and service from AIP is excellent. They have Egyptian, British, and Naval Brigade.

Yep, jumped in for ten more sets beside what ah already had <sigh> Have a feeling that when they finally empty the warehouse and begin production here, the pricing won't be so liberal ?

Wolfshanza, thanks for the intel. I bought several of the sets with the pack camels. They are really nice and can be used for the FFL, Afghanistan and the Indian Mutiny too.

Sevastopol14 Jun 2018 8:35 a.m. PST

Bought more. Price is too good to pass up!

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP15 Jun 2018 4:41 a.m. PST

I ordered 32 boxes of camels yesterday. Oh, what have I done?
