Moroccan Troops

Moroccan Regulars

These are the troops used to represent the small regular units of the  Moroccan

Government forces. They can also represent small units, such as palace guards of the Sultan, important Bashaws or pretenders to the throne. They usually appear in very small numbers and are not as good as they are pretty.

They are modeled from Foundry Franco Prussian War French Zouaves, and are the same figures as used for French Triailleurs, but with a more appropriate uniform.

Moroccan Irregular troops are a far more likely to appear on the game table. These irregulars are provided by the many tribes of Morocco and are in appearance the same as the Berber tribes at war with the French. They are therefore the same figures - Old Glory Arabs - from the March or Die range. These specimens are well worn 
veterans of many games, as can be seen from the odd patch of bear metal peeking through the paint. 

These figures are of course all interchangeable with the Berber and Arab tribesman figures and of those also used for the mounted irregulars of the French forces.

Moroccan irregular troops were very unreliable during the early part of the century and not as well armed as the French, using mostly black powder breech loading Remingtons.
The majority of the images displayed in the "cast" section were taken on a Nikon Coolpix 900 Digital Camera.

Some of the then were scanned on a flatbed scanner by laying the figure directly on the glass.
