No-one else has done them....maybe just the riders so they will fit on camels that can already be got from other sets?

A great example look here

Thanks..I knew this... I have the set.
I was thinking that if the riders were made then it would be easy to use the camels from different sets that have them already.

Well did the European knights actually use camels? I have heard that horses are frightened by camels and therefore the saraceens did make "fortress" of their camels to avoid the strike of heavy armoured knights?
