Irregular ‚Friendly‘ Scouts

I will probably have some left over plastic figures after I’ve completed the Beja, so I was thinking of using them to make a unit of friendly tribesmen to act as a scouts for my British field force.  These would normally be attached in small numbers to patrols and marching columns, as shown in contemporary illustrations by the likes of Caton Woodville. 

I might just add a couple of figures but I could at a push have a full unit of irregulars, all armed with obsolete rifles but bumped up to five points using the Fieldcraft upgrade. I’d need twelve figures to build a unit but I can probably squeeze that many out of the spare jibbeh clad parts on the sprues, arming them with the rifle equipped arms that I’m not using. 

It’s an idea worth considering at least?
