Mahoosive Camels!

Whats that coming over the hill? Is it a Monster ?

Or is it a Museum Miniatures Midianite Bedouin Camel?

Having bought a dozen of the aforementioned creatures recently to flesh out an allied contingent for my Assyrians my plan was to use some old Essex bow-armed camel riders I had kicking about as the Light Camels and use the double-crewed Midianite ones as the Medium Camelry with bows in the core Early Bedouin ally.

Museum figures are made of a really strong but pliable metal compound, so tweaking one of the bowmen's arms and cutting off his bow to turn him into a flag holder to create a Commander/General figure was fairly easy to do;




But just have a look how these beasts compare size-wise to the Essex camels !








They are great figures, even allowing for the single pose - but boy are they huge!

Always glad to see beautiful camels, well done!

These aren't big, they look correct for adult camels, the originals are small IMHO.

Yeah... but the men are also massive too. The museum riders could almost be 20mm when compared to the textbook 15mm essex riders!
