The Tuaregs by Morgan Miniatures**

These colorful figures are designed to be used with the Morgan French Foreign Legion figures already released. These FFL figures serve a dual purpose as they can be used for the The Mexican Adventure 1861–67 range or do battle with the Tuaregs in the Sahara of the 19th century.

In the late 19th century, the Tuareg resisted the French colonial invasion of their Central Saharan homelands. Tuareg broadswords were no match for the more advanced weapons of French troops. After numerous massacres on both sides, the Tuareg were subdued and required to sign treaties in Mali 1905 and Niger 1917. In southern Morocco and Algeria, the French met some of the strongest resistance from the Ahaggar Tuareg. Their Amenokal, traditional chief Moussa ag Amastan, fought numerous battles in defence of the region. Finally, Tuareg territories were taken under French governance, and their confederations were largely dismantled and reorganised.
