Today I want to write some words about these two sets. It's also a story about camel riding…
Have fun with the report.
Report in german and english.

Thanks for the write-up. It is always interesting to get perspective on these sets before purchase.

Regarding the riding pose. I spent a while in Egypt on a dig and saw quite a number of camel riders. Granted, they weren't Bedouin, and for most camel was not the preferred mode of transportation, but I saw plenty of non tourists riding a camel like it was a horse. I have a limited exposure, but I will use the pose as is and hope that in a crowd of camel riding miniatures, they won't be too objectionable.

That being said, I appreciate your review as it helps frame in my mind the idea of whether I want to invest in these or not. Thanks again.
