Already knowing the good quality of Khurasan products, I got excited to learn that a colleague was planning to give a try to some of them so I rapidly joined in his overseas order, with these few camel mounted Tuareg warriors you can see below.

Tuaregs I

I got in love with them from the very first moment, although the assembly process of the minute parts composing them was a bit of a pain, for it turned out that the not only camels and riders are separate parts, but saddle crosses and backs too, as well as their large javelin quivers or optional shields.


Tuaregs II

However, as a Spanish saying says, 'sarna con gusto no pica' or scabies with pleasure aren't that itchy. As expectable, blue has been the dominant color of this unit; or rather I should say "blues" in the plural, because I used up to six different ones: 70.899 Dark Prussian blue, 70.809 Royal blue, 70.962 Flat blue, 70.841 Andrea blue, 70.961 Sky blue and 70.906 Pale blue in different combinations!

Tuaregs III

I've pretty much respected their original equipment, although in the end I exchanged javelins for 3D printed muskets – with the prospect of using them as eventual allies or mercenaries in any one of my 18th century armies.

All the best,
Lluís

I'm not sure how many times I've almost ordered those Tauregs. Quite stunning sculpts and you painted them up rather nicely.very brilliant as they should be.

I think I would pretty disappointed getting multi-piece figures. You did a great job with them.

Hard to believe they are 15s. I would use them to fight the FFL with the addition of some firearms.

These can be great Almoravides/Almohades and keep fighting incides until the time of Beau Geste and more. Beautiful minis!

I'd like to know more about the Tuareg use of javelins. Any guidance to reference would be much appreciated.JF
