The Tuareg complete the refurbish programme for the moment as I have made a good start on a new project, but more later.

All the figures are converted Colonial Sudanese and Ansar figures from Old Glory. Face coverings, shields and trappings were made with Milliput.

Nice work! Looks very "desertish".

Glad you liked them.

Good work. I've tried doing the same with making shields and adding face coverings, so I know what a chore it is.

Wouldn't it just be easier to use the Peter Pig Tuaregs?

Ironically I converted them in the opposite direction to produce generic early bedouin types. The originals come with the distinctive Tuareg shield as separate items

Zippee,

The purchase of Peter Pig or Khurasan Tuaregs would have undermined the purpose of the project. With more than 300 Colonial Sudanese idle, the conversion project has now made half the collection active.

Fair enough
and nice work
