    If your looking for cheap miniatures for araby, there is a company that sells through eBay callex Mega Miniatures that has a variety of araby stuff in-scale with warhammer that cost about 1.50$ per mini. I personally own their harem guards and their fire breather for my Araby Mordheim gang and bought them because I was broke and was pleasantly suprised by their quality. They are similar in quality to the old Ral Partha or Grenadier miniatures. They claim to be in 25mm scale, but when mounted on a small base are bigger than LoTR minis but smaller than GW ones. They vary in size A TON, too, but whatever for 1.50 a pop, you get what you pay for.

    I just like their cool sultan miniature, who would look good in a howdah of some sort.

    And do you have the old GW arabian merchant from Mordheim? He was pretty cool!

    The head is from an imperial mage with hair from a marauder drumstick and some green stuff for the moustache.

    Re: Arabyan nights

    Raelly nice job on these arabys, the models are so full of character, and the paint job is a great standard!

    the wizard is my favourite at the moment as he has been nicely converted to look just right for the army.

    USERS of WARSEER!

    I have a BIG request. Recently my google-fu is weak and I can't find any decent pictures of painted Al Muktar's Desert Dogs. Since I'm planing to convert one unit of these guys I want them to look as close to the originals. As base models I'm using wood elf glade riders. If the plan fails I'll make a normal unit of light cavalry with bows and spears.

    Can YOU find any good pics of the desert dogs unit?

    Cheers

    Hehehe! Lovely Wizard there. Funny how you made his sword into a Scimitar (you just bent it didn't you?)
