A return to the War of the Three Kingdoms.

After a year away I have completed another unit. This time it is the Montrose Irish who fought on the side of the king. They still need a wash, but otherwise are complete. Their adversaries are now on the painting board, the Scottish Covenanters. The photos are not great as I had to take them indoors due to it snowing outside.


Two sleeves of eight shot on each flank, with pikes and command in the centre.



Alisdair 'the devastator' Mac Colla and his bodyguards bottom centre.



Difficult to see in these photos, but some of them are wearing plaid scarves/sashes, which came out reasonably well using a set of ink pens.

  3. Nice. I think they turned out very good. Nice add to the forces. Are you planning a battle some time soon? I would like to see Pike & Shotte in action again; the first one you did was a good one.

    Keep it up Ian.

    1. Thanks Kurtus, I will have a game of P&S again, though it will have to wait its turn on the table. A bit of a queue forming.
