I thought this made a nice picture, sent to me by Ged.

I regard the Mamelukes as up there with Brigade games new chasseurs for quality of casting and anatomy;


Painted by Steve Maughan I gather

Good point. Very, very, good point. I had not noticed.

GMB do explain why their products are overscale (for wargamers recognition basically) but I have never been convinced….as I do not throw dice maybe. Incredible quality but massively too big…always thought that odd!

The great thing about mamelukes is that you can let your imagination run riot with colours and embroidery on waistcoats, sleeves etc.


Later Mamelukes were largely French anyway and wore a more sombre look, but the very earliest ones in Napoleon's service were all the colours of the rainbow.
