I started painting these handsome looking fellows back in March during the Challenge, but
didn't get around to finishing them in time to enter them. They were finished off
early last month and featured as the only musket armed unit in the Moroccan army
in my game at Broadside, "Teviot's Last Stand"
Trying to find any info about the Moroccan army in 1664 has proved........difficult to say the least!
So studying paintings of Moroccan and Moorish scenes, it seems they wore very similar clothing for hundreds of years. There are no Moroccan figures made in 25mm for the period, so i'm afraid these are pure guess work???
French Foreign Legion range.
I think they fit in quite well, from a limited knowledge point of view.
The only real problem with the figures, were the guns they all carry, as they're from
roughly 200 years in the future, but a little filing and swearing soon
had them a little more musket like.....well for me anyway???
