Willie, to order the sudan figures please send me an email      egrootens@gmx.de
Unfortunately there are restrictions from the german post in case of covid 19
and I cannot ship a small box into the USA at the moment.

Shipment should be possible after September, 15th. Then it will be shipped as
seafreight and therefore will need 25 to 3o days until it arrived.
I am sorry to have no better news in this case.

Erich

There are 2 good books about this theme:   John Julius Norwich   The Kingdom in the Sun   Vol. 1 and 2
available in German language too   (J. J. Norwich    Die Normannen in Sizilien )
not a bad read if anyone is interested in medieval history - and the Osprey - Volume will provide the pictures to all the text
It is a mostly forgotten part of history, because the rule of the normans was only for a short time
