"I was browsing through the Plastic Warrior Review and came across Strelets Mounted and foot Rif Rebels and wondered if we could use them in Jack's colonial army to bump up the Dervish forces.

I am not sure if they were work but I went ahead and painted them anyway, starting with the mounted figures. We have 20 or so B&B Foreign Legion figures so we can always try a small game with them instead…"

Between its so-called Rifs and Arab Rebellion irregulars Strelets now does seven different Arab sets!

By taking as relaxed an approach to historical accuracy as Strelets does for your French North Africa gaming, mixing the figures from all those sets would surely give you the most varied selection of Arabs achievable in miniature.

If historical accuracy is a big concern for you you could instead play the French Syrian campaigns of the 1920s.

These figures are also very good sculpts more in the style of metal figures than traditonal plastics.

If I didn't already have plenty of 28mm metal FFL and Arabs I'd be very tempted to go 1/72 plastic.
