Figured I needed a new Generic Chinese camp for my many un-painted Chinese armies. I was inspired from a few pictures I found on the web and added some flavor to it. The gate and fence is made from dowels and flat wood stock. I also used string to tie the posts together. The stand is made from my standard blue foam, Elmer's wood putty and some gravel (for the road).

I bought these guys from Baxter at Wargames, when they were on sale. I bought them to be the matched pair for my Sassanid Persians. Unfortunately, my Persians keep getting their butts kicked by everyone. I am pretty sure these Arabs will do the same to them.
I used one of the second camel riders for the Generals companion. The army came with another of the armored riders.
I really did not like having the camels all double riders. Something wrong about two guys riding double...... I took some of the riders and added spears and shields to them. I also made some saddle bags and extra baggage for the camels to carry to balance out the figure a little bit. The other issue was with the camels themselves. They were all two poses. I bent some of the heads back, some forward, and some to the side to break up the lines of the stand.
