Reinforcements have arrived and now the desert will run red with the blood of the Big Folk!
Elton Waters did a fine job converting Alternative Armies Halfling Mamaluke Chasseurs into mean lean desert raiders.
These little fellahs will serve as everything from Bebers, to Baggara, to Mamaluke irregulars and anything else I need irregular dog archers for.
The Halflings ride Saluki hounds and tote short bows...very short bows.
There are two units of ten and each unit also has a unique leader, musician, and standard. The finial of one is the all important piece of cake, while the other features crossed pipes, thus representing two of the three pillars of Shirelam, the third, of course. being strict adherence to Shire-eah law.
As a bouns, Mr. Waters included a 21st figure, a Halfling in Afri tribal garb. This chap, by Mr Water's reckoning is a shipwrecked sailor from the Windwards who has set himself up as a god among one of Afris many tribal factions.
As it happens I have need for just such a chap! All will be revealed eventually.
For now here are a few more photos of the Halfling Irregulars.
