Hi
I have been replacing the blocks with miniatures. Done Punic war and Gallic war era Romans Carthaginians and the Barbarians these where a mix of different units from many different tribes and eras (Gauls Germans British Dacians and some later stuff Goths Picts Franks)

The eastern will be a mix of Persia Parthia etc

Dose anyone have any suggestions of camels or cathaphract camels in 20mm scale

Thanks

Caesar Miniatures and Italeri have 1:72 Arabian warrior boxes with fine camel riders, but that's only 2-3 models from dozens in the box. Not sure it's a good deal if you can't buy them separately.

If you don't mind a little kit bashing, HaT Hadendowah Camelry has twelve camels to work with.

The Caesar set is nice, but you need a couple of boxes just to make single unit.

Italeri's Mongol Cavalry and Arab Warriors both have three camels each, but you may find them a bit big (depanding on what figs you're mixing them with.)

I use a mix of different plastics HAT Italeri mainly but also others all 1/72 even box to box can be a bit off scale

These Italeri http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=197
I think are front runners as they should take a standard horseman based on the poses shown
