19th Century Baluchis with Gripping Beast Plastics

During the last week i continued to paint minis from the Gripping Bests plastic medieval Arab Spearmen and Archers box that I use to build me a 19th century Zanzibar Slaver force. Pictures below show the 12 Baluchis with Sword and Shields.

In The Men Who Would Be Kings rules I probably will run them as Fierce Irregular Infantry @ 6 points.

The one of you that already are familiar with the rules know that Fierce are not a Option for Irregular Infantry, but I give them the option anyway to illustrate the Baluchis:

Fierce: Fighting becomes 4+. Cost +2 points

This ease to adjust Dan´s "Rampant" serie of rules I realy love.

Next up are the Ruga-Ruga.


  1. Once again, inspired conversions Michael.

  2. Lovely lovely work again. I am inspired.

  6. Great work once again
    The stunning slideshow, thank you for sharing

  7. Nice work! Can I ask where you got the extra sword arms from? Only a few actually come with the figures...

    1. Thanks !

      I got them from all kind of plastic boxes, most from the Gripping Beast Arab cavalry boxed, but also some from perry union infantry command sprue... Some are also dark age straight swords that I heated up in hot water and bent in to shape...
