I finally got around to doing something with them over the past week, a quick base-coat, wash of Vallejo Sepia and then a couple of highlights and I think they look quite presentable.
The standard and shield designs are not based upon any historical source.
Here are a few more images:
I've also painted a trio of Berber characters to go with the new painting project to fight against the Christian Spanish. A Sheik, Imam and Standard Bearer. Again these were done with a quick base-coat, sepia was and couple of highlights. The standard is done by doing a Google image search for Arabic Poetry to get the flow of the text.
