French-locally recruited tirailleurs, spahis and gunners, all with European cadres;
Natives-A significant quantity of infantry units drilled by tirailleur deserters to the point that they responded to bugle calls and could fire (ragged) volleys (some seem to have been better-drilled than others);
Tribal militia-some units armed with rifle muskets, some with a mix of bows and spears (they have little desire to be there);
Note if needed, the militia could be organized as all-bow and all-spear units.
Periodically a mountain battery was present.
Can analogues for these worthies be found?
It would be especially helpful if the rule book provided for an ambush scenario.
