Gripping Beast Plastic Arabs

Crikey, where did that come from!

I've been saying for quite some time that a set of plastic Arabs would be a great thing for wargamers, and whaddya know Gripping Beast are releasing some next month at Salute!

From the mail:

Plastic Arab Spearmen and Archers
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 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).

I'm a bit excited by this.
Although my Almoravid army is quite sizeable, you can never have too many spearmen and bowmen..


  1. Hurrah! Useful for all sorts of things.

  2. Just saw the news to. Im so excited.
    Looks promising.
