Scots Reinforcements

By smacdowall, Mar 10 2016 03:31PM

King Charles II’s army in Flanders has just been reinforced by a redoubtable regiment of Scots, raised and equipped by Ross Macfarlane — my oldest wargaming ally, opponent and friend. These are Ross’ own sculpts and castings with a charming ‘toy soldier’ feel to them.

After a long sea voyage (from Nova Scotia) they arrived in very good shape. I was not in anyway tempted to repaint them. Although Ross’ painting style is very different to mine, it matches the castings perfectly, accentuating the toy soldier look. I did, however, touch up the odd scratches and bruises and gave them new pikes.

I did think it appropriate to present them with new set colours to mark the start of their service with Charles Stuart in Flanders.

An excellent new standard. May they cover it in glory.

I am sure they will!
