I really found a source where they show French infantry with red trousers for this period. The other two men are members of the Indigenous Guides (also called Omar's Company) in French service.

That battle scene is excellent, Ralf!  Your guards look good too.  The last two photos are quite good too, as if they are of two leaders and their bodyguard and a leader and his bodyguard.

Your dromedaries look great, Ralf!  I really like the contrast between campaign and parade dress.

I see you're using the old style dromedaries, saddles, and bridles.  Do you have any experience with the new ones?  I've found the saddles stay on the camels much better and the klickies stay on the saddles much better.  Still, the old saddles look great.

are those "Dromedaires" campaign dress torsos originals?  :P

thanks Ralf! I must remember "Ralf and his Rubber" before I ask such questions next time  :D ...you have done that many times  :P and I still say much as your idea is another candidate for playmo-customs-invention-nobel prize, I still cant bring myself to do it because buying playmo is challenging & expensive from where I live  ;D
...but I'll take a long look at all my chinese/japanese customs and see if Rub-it-like-Ralf would make some new possibilities  ;)

and Argand,
thanks for showing me this cook...I would never have guessed  :)

Like cheng's asians make up my mind about asia I think always of your boxes when it comes to napoleon in egypt, Denon or even the Rosetta stone.  ;D


Looking for some reference about the dromedaires I found this website
http://www.allworldwars.com/French%20Army%20from%20Revolution%20to%20the%20First%20Empire%20by%20Hippolyte%20Bellange.html
 (http://www.allworldwars.com/French%20Army%20from%20Revolution%20to%20the%20First%20Empire%20by%20Hippolyte%20Bellange.html)  The first one seems to be specialist himself, a dromedaire is on the 6th picture from top. Stunning great rendition of the details and overall appearence as always. Chapeau!

Time to show a few new sets for my everlasting an maybe favourite topic. I am absolutely into those shoulder-parts and tried to let them look like colourful sleeves/vests.
