I like to put civilian vignettes in my wargames, so here are some pictures of the citizenry of Khartoum in the 1880s. The figures (all 54mm) shown here will appear in my Khartoum! game at this year's Little Wars and Historicon conventions.

Obviously on the Blue Nile side of Khartoum! (Somebody had to say it!)

Lovely figures! I wish I could paint my 28 mm Arabs with the narrow stripe--wide stripe--narrow stripe pattern!

In the grand manner! A game like this must be played in formal afternoon garb while enjoying appropriate adult beverages.

I like the figure of a certain Belgian detective. Very appropriate for a [murder on the] Nile game.

@Grelber, I did not paint any of the figures shown in the third picture. They are mostly from a company called King & Country. Most of the figures in the first picture are Trophy of Wales figures.
