Prelude to Khartoum

Hi guy,s
This time back to the Sudan sun was shining for a short time when I got home so the Sudan collection were taken from the cabinet for some pics.
You may remember in the Film Khartoum starring Chalrton Heston one of the opening shots was of the Egyptains marching through the desert with the Mahdists waiting to pounce so here we go.

Egyptains moving supplies.

Unlucky infantry marching behind the dust kicked up by the horse.

Figures from Perry Minatures.

Hicks pasha before the ambush.

Madist watch from the high ground.

Fuzzys preparing to let loose.

Muhulla whips up the faithful.

Camels begin to charge.

Answar horse charge flags from the flag dude.

Egyptains try to keep formation.


All figures painted by The War office.

A last shot.

This was the first collection that the War Office painted for me some years ago now.

Osman Dinga who went on to cause a load of trouble later.
With the perrys releasing new plastics for this conflict I expect to see an
 expolsion of figures around in the near future I will certainly be adding some
to a couple of dhows later this year.


  1. Spent most of today flooring the loft at my daughter's place. This has cheered me up no end - great stuff. Those hills are really good. Make them yourself? (That's a hint for a 'how to do it" by the way . . .)

    The figures? Very nicely done, but I'm still amazed at the quantities.


  2. Great photos of fantastic figures and like Crazy Joe said there's so many of them, but I guess that's what Gen Gordon thought as well!!

  3. Thanks guy's
    The hills are Kallistra on top of TSS so no credit to me for that but I am going to have a go at making some in the near future.

    As for the quant's always liked the Peter Gilder take on building armie's.



  4. Keep those Sudan shot the figures, love the period. Shame you are not in Australia, we could have some great Sudan games and run some interesting campaigns, with yours and my collection. Thanks for placing the images on the blog.
