The Company of Pharaonic Revivalists

A long time ago I bought a number of Reaper Egyptian horror figures to go with some Egyptians Dan had bought for pulp skirmish. When I first saw the Servants of Ra company I immediately thought of doing something similar, but not the same. So I grouped together a number of figures, did a couple of conversions and voila - the Company of Pharaonic Revivalists was born. Headed by an Egyptian academic and occultist, Professor Zawi, this is a terrorist group dedicated to Egyptian independence and the restoration of the Pharaohs of the Nile.

'They did the mash... They did the Monster mash...'
I wanted to have all four of my mummies involved, not to mention the big cheese Pharaoh Ramarama himself. I haven't invented all of the names, nor worked out all of the stats for this company, and it may be that the points are so high I can't take them all at once.
Pharaoh Ramarama, ready for a ding-dong battle.
I gave the professor an assistant to carry his scrolls and a bodyguard with a scratchbuilt arc rifle.
'Is that Mummy photo-bombing me again?'
And to add extra muscle/firepower to the group, an arc-cannon. Can you have an arc cannon? Well it's something big and heavy anyway.
'Go over there and shoot in case it blows up.'
I'll figure out the stats and post them later.

Mystical Aura gives an armour rating of 11.
Muhammed and Kaseem may be upgraded to have a military rifle at +9 points each.
Habib and Musa act as one model. they may not separate from each other at all.

That means that the company comes to 273 points with two Mummy servants. Only 9 figures and a lot of points in a few characters. I don't know how this one will play out.
