Mutatawwi'a : The crusade begins : Crescent and Cross

So having committed in public to getting on with my Arabs I have no choice ! In between preparing more Sealion and VBCW stuff I put on the radio and cracked on with the first stage. These are Black Tree figures all bought as an incredibly cheap deal at a show. But they needed som prep and it has taken I would guess 5 or 6 hours to get to this stage. For me this is the worst bit with metals......but I am happy and they are nice figures with reasonable variety which is helped by the various shield options.
 I'll be keeping most of them fairly generic and will be looking to play them in various guises for C&C, Lion Rampant and we might see a few turn up in Zanzibar !

    1. The challenge is deciding how to paint them, I have seen so many lovely figures recently but the more complex the scheme the harder......mine might be quite plain ! We'll see....I'm going to do one unit lol Black so they at least should be easy.

  7. Good looking batch of BTD Arabs waiting for paint. BTD's Warriors of Islam line is one of my favorites. Have fun!
