Highland Officer

Work continues on the Black Watch at a slightly slower rate than I had hoped due to the real world intruding somewhat on my time. This is all the more frustrating as I’m really enjoying painting these figures having got over my tartan jitters; in fact I’m now in the happy position of having finished the tartan on all 24 figures.

This is a vintage casting of BN/37 Highland Officer (marching). In common with their other ranges Hinton Hunt produced two highland officer figures, one in the charging pose and one marching. I’ve included both types in this unit.

With luck I will have the whole unit finished and based up soon but I do still have all the hat bands and stocking tops to do on the last 12 marching infantry so bear with me.

They are coming on very nicely - I am most impressed with all that tartan.

I absolutely love these, so mu that I now have an acute case of Tartan Envy. What might Freud have said about that I wonder?

Best Regards,

A wee charmer. Lovely figure and a cracking paint job.

Thanks for the comments chaps!

Stokes - surely you could squeeze in an 80 figure Highland battalion to the Duchy OOB?

Its his socks that do it for me.
Now he also needs a little black in between the bars of his sword hilt.
