Here's the completed unit- I'm going to add a dozen or so Mounted infantry on foot and a couple horse holders too:

For more pics and info on how they were converted please feel free to take a look on my blog here:

Beautiful work!

Very nice indeed. It's s shame there are still such gaps in the Perry Sudan range which petered out when it was only part-way done.

Those are fantastic. Well done.

Nicely done

Thank you for the encouraging words guys.

It's s shame there are still such gaps in the Perry Sudan range which petered out when it was only part-way done.

The Dymanic Duo sometimes pop back and fill in gaps in their ranges.

I think I'll drop Michael a line and ask about the Sudan range. Seems like a good time(?).

A good idea.

I have asked from time to time. A few gaps I'm aware of:

At least Command and swordsmen packs for the late war Ansar and the Nile arabs. Both these types only have two packs unlike the early war Beja who are covered by nine packs for the foot figures. It's the late war Ansar that I'd like to see expanded and covered in as much detail and variety as the Beja. Given how iconic and important these troops are I'm amazed they haven't been done. Had I known this would be the case I'd have never started the project at all.

No British artillery other than the screw gun. They could do a Sudan crew for the 9 pdr in the little Wars range

no gun limbers at all

No command for the Beja Camel riders

No Guards ( these are a nuisance as they only need a badge added to the helmet but it's too big a badge to just add by painting.

I'm sure there is more they could add.

Hi Timmo,

All very good points! Funnily enough it hadn't crossed my mind about the lack of gun crew and the Late Ansar command packs!!

I'll fire off an email tonight and see if I get any hints.

One never knows.

Great brush work! Your enthusiasm for getting the period and battle OOB is infectious. I'm still slowly adding to my Sudan project, which most likely will never be complete.

I asked them on their facebook page when they released mounted infantry for the Zulu War if they were going to produce mounted infantry for the Sudan, and the answer wasn't exactly positive, so I doubt you'll see any of the gaps filled.

Hi all

Yes … it's a shame there are some significant gaps in the PM range.

I would like to see additional British artillery and limbers, etc, too. I have petitioned (via their Facebook page) for Jack Tars hauling a Gatling gun limber.

Since I am just at the beginning of my Sudan project, perhaps time is on my side in respect of additions to the range.

@Atheling: Your fabulous mounted infantry conversion must have been a fairly expensive undertaking.
