Scotlands finest in column of march.
The regiment deployed in battle-line.
All the figures I used for this unit were vintage Hinton Hunt castings with the exception of the two colour bearers who were converted from DK figures. The unit is made up of:
18 x BN/36 Highland private (marching)
3 x BN/30 Officer (charging) – two converted as colour bearers
1 x BN/37 Officer (marching)
1 x BN/31 Sergeant (charging)
1 x BN/38 Piper (playing bag-pipes)
"Jock, is there anything worn beneath your kilt?"
"Nae sir, it's all in perfect workin' order!"
A taste of things to come? The regiment forms square to defend against French cavalry.
The preparations for Vintage Waterloo are continuing at quite a pace – Roy seems to have every skilled brush-smith in the land (actually the world) beavering away painting up his troops. If you haven’t already seen them take a look here at Matt’s blog and here at Lee’s blog.
So the pressure is on – next up for me will be a squadron of Grenadiers-a-cheval of the Guard who will be brigaded with my Polish Guard lancers for the game.
