I had forgotten how much I like the look of my Egyptian troops until I got them out of storage in order to photograph them. I think it must be something to do with Jon Courtney Grimwood's Arabesk trilogy, but I have a soft spot for troops in fezs!

My Egyptian force consists of two brigades, with each brigade having the same composition: three battalions of infantry, a squadron of cavalry, and a couple of guns. 

These days, as I don't play much 19th Century at the moment, my Egyptians will probably find themselves proxy-ing as Libyans for my Operation Compass games...but at least they'll be on the table!
