these 'old' customs....so heart tugging...

And, my dear, Cheng ...

I expected you to ask about the two German advisors in the last picture ... ;)

Here's a close up:

And, for you, Michael (my fellow Victorian enthusiast) ...

Some "newer" photos of:
"The Arabs, Dervishes and Egyptians"

were the germans directly involved? the turko-egyptian army was equipped with krupp guns, so there was some instruction to be given. also some parts of egyptian uniforms look prussian. can you tell us something about them?

the more often i see the your dervishes the more i like your idea of using the old female torso. it is a part that i would have seen as one of the least usable for our purposes. :D. maybe it should be used for chengs boxers too.   ;)

i would also like to see more of the group with the photographer in the forest on the left edge of arab2.jpg. people from india?

@ geobra: Thanks a lot!!! :-)

....

spot on Michael  ;)
i'm slowly trying to accept fixing female arms on male klickies  :P
and here you are suggeting i use female torsos for my boxers  ;D
yes...i dont mean to just showcase my customs...i always look forward to ideas for improvement from great customisers like yourself  :D
fantastic idea, Michael & Richard....i must in future consider the 'old' female torsos as an option(they are of no use and i swopped them with the fat torsos from my knights' theme..so for now, they hide behind 'fat' breast plates....to become useful again someday thansk to your revelation  :)

and Richard, i actually wished all of your these pictures were taken with today's camera....thats why i asked if they are still intact (short of asking/suggesting that new pics be taken again someday...each theme deserves a new thread on it own)

yes, read my mind again...many unasked questions eg "german officers....both same torso? not the same as the older calvary torsos with just 2 row of yellow buttons? the other non-picklehaube cap is oiriginal right? or made by cutting off the shades from a police cap?...too many questions....didint want to drag this thread

just carry on Richard! and thanks  ;)

the early bird catches the worm. 

i am especially envious of 5508 on picture 9.  ;D

and what is playmopeople? are there also soldiers? i could imagine to customize the figure into a large dervish using your ideas.

thank you for the insight.
@ geobra: Thanks a lot!!! :-)

thanx for the links and pictures richard! simply magnificent!  :o
I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.
High, yo, down they go, there's no such word as can't.
We'll ride clean down to hell and back for Ulysses Simpson Grant.
