It's taken a while but here's my first base of the fantastic highlanders from Crann Tara. To my mind they really look the part and tartan isn't so daunting once you get into it. The challenge is trying to ensure that each one looks different. Anyway I'm hoping for some casualty figures and humble folk to add variety. I've started on the redcoats but so far there's only two completed. Culloden is a long way off.


  1. Nicely done Philip, your photo is on the web site and blog, keep them coming.
    I paint 6-8 highlanders at a time all in the same tartan paint 30 - 40 I.e. 6 or 7 different tartans then mix. It saves loads of time :)
