Help Identify these figures - Arab Conquest era

I bought these 15mm figures in 1982 (?). They are an Arab Conquest army originally based for WRG rules. They are beautifully painted, using the black line technique and featuring elaborate shield designs. Any ideas on the source of these figures? Minifigs?

15mm Dilmun, Yemeni, or Makkan Army

The army is ready to paint. Four stands of Bad Horse (three of which are camels), four Raiders, one Skirmisher, and eight stands of Rabble.

15mm Libyans

These Libyans are based on the illustrations found in Osprey’s “Army of the Pharaohs” and a wall painting in the tomb of Seti I. The command stand (Warband) and Skirmishers are Old Glory figures. The Rabble stand ( only 18 more to go!) has a Khurasan figure in the middle and two Eureka figures.

Re: Early Egyptian vs. Nubians

Game 2 ended in another disaster for the Nubians. Alternating the Archers and Warband did help the line survive the initial Raider attack.

Re: Early Egyptian vs. Nubians

Game 2, except now there is more terrain. The Nubians are set up with Warband and Archers mixed together this time.

Re: Early Egyptian vs. Nubians

The game ended in disaster for the Nubians. The Raiders destroyed two Archers, including the general, on first contact. The Nubian warbands made some gaps in the Bow Levy line by pushing them back, but became fragmented by pursuits. The Raiders exploited the gaps in the Nubian Archer line and ended ...

Early Egyptian vs. Nubians

I played a solo game to try out my new Egyptian and Nubian armies. Egypt had the lower invasion score and selected Dry topography, wanting to have minimal terrain so that the Raiders could move more freely. There was a single patch of Rough terrain on tje Egyptian baseline. Egypt also had the tactic...

15mm Nubians

This Nubian army is based on the illustrations found in an Osprey book on the Egyptian army and also one of the old WRG guides. There are six stands of Archers, three Skirmishers, and five Warband. All the figures are by Old Glory, except for one old Feudal Castings figure.
