Plastic 28mm Arabs

[Via Carl from our club and Tom WD pretty much simultaneously in two different browser tabs. :) ]

Those awfully nice chaps from Gripping Beast have just announced that their new 28mm plastic Arabs will be out at Salute. The box art looks tasty, and the announcement says:
New from GB Plastics and released at SALUTE is this versatile and yummy box containing 40 warriors. You can make up to 16 archers, 16 javelin men or 32 40 [thank you, Hobbsy] spearmen from the box. Usable for SAGA or for Arab and Moorish armies from the conquest period to the siege of Vienna (at a pinch).

  1. Intruiging, though those sculpts look a tad uninspiring.

    Still, an interesting development and I might be tempted to grab a box to add typo the plastics pile.

  6. They really have come as a surprise and they will be well received I would think. I'll be buying about four boxes me thinks!
