I painted those three years back and I remembered well how quick you can actually finish them. Think I spent 2 or 3 evenings and they were all done. Problem then was we had a game the day after my third evening so at one at night I grabbed some bases, dipped them in GW Sand and considered them done.
I should probably do it more often because this mob is by far the most successful unit I have ever gamed with. Everyone in our club still remembers how they drove off the British and captured the fortified town in a heroic assault (thanks TFL for the Riot in the town card). This all in the first ten minutes of the battle.
Next Sunday we have a Sudan game again and the expectations for these brave beja are very high. So to help them with their new status I provided them with new new bases. It also helps that all the others use this basing as well. I think my tactic will be to hide them amongst all their brothers to only jump out to deliver the final blow and steal the fame once more.
Anyway, on to the pictures. I know to be really impressive you need a lot more (like this angry mob from One man and his brushes) but the sight of them here today will cause the British players for our Sunday game a couple of sleepless nights for sure. Three more days to paint up more gatling guns guys...

Rebasing was easier than I thought. After I've left the base drowned in water for a couple of days I could remove the figs without any problem.
