engineer figures). The also do Mamelukes and I believe Lithuanian Tartars are forthcoming. The Mameluke figures are on a mix of walking and charging horses. The walking figures include various musicians and I thought it would be fun to put together a small band. The figures aren't cheap - the kettle drummer costs £5.95 and the other ones are £4.50 each, but I think they are beautiful sculpts and make a nice little vignette. The other figures in the range include a "normal" drummer, an eagle-bearer, a standard bearer and a charging trumpeter. I wanted the kettle-drummer to be centre stage, and thought another drummer figure would look a bit odd so I bought the cymbalist and the chap with the "jingling johnny". This Asian instrument was used by Ottoman armies from the 17th century and made its way into European bands in the mid-1800s. Apparently it is still carried by bands in the German Army and the French Foreign Legion.
