Both Egyptian and Sudan minis come form the Waterloo box. It is a mixed lot of dudes. I will need a shit ton of boxes. 12 egyptians and 12 Sudanese per box. The rest are mostly unusable! You get a lot of officers!!!!
I will need to look for another source for both. At least you get enough Officer types to create characters across the campaigns.
This is the best color paint guide I could find. I will be using it for my Egyptian forces.
They have a very basic color scheme and limit number of colors. Maybe 30 minutes more for highlights and flocking.
