Hello everyone,
The conquest of Algeria by France was carried out in several distinct stages.

There was thus during the pacification campaigns, the period of 1844-1857 which is very interesting, on the other hand in 20mm metal figurines (nor at any other scale ) there are no figurines for Berber fighters?

I faced the same problem for my plans to game the French conquest of Morocco: no Berbers in 20mm. So I'm taking the Hollywood route and using generic "Arabs" and Bedouins.

Consider checking out Medieval Berber conquest of Spain castings. Arms are swords and spears but those are also used in 1900s Algeria.

I don't agree, the Middle Ages are too old…
