Even more Black Watch Highlanders!

Today's post brought some more additions to my Funny Little Wars army ... some more Black Watch Highlanders (or proper soldiers, as Tim Gow would say!).

I now have 12 of them, including two officers, and they look mighty fine 'on parade'.



I am sure that they will be the backbone of my Highland Brigade, and will serve with distinction alongside my other Highlanders, the Seaforths.

As I expect most of my Funny Little Wars battles will be fought using half-size units, I decided to see what the Black Watch looked like as a half-size battalion/regiment.


Not bad, eh?

(The two 'missing' figures will probably serve on the Brigade or Divisional Commander's staff. The officer will be an aide de camp and the piper will no doubt entertain the Officers' Mess on formal nights ... and scare the willies out of the enemy the rest of the time!)

PS. I did buy some more Seaforth Highlanders via eBay ... but they have yet to arrive.

  3. Brilliant stuff! As good as the US Marines you did in one of your previous post.

    Highland dress is always impressive ... and the Black Watch tartan has a particular somber look that increases its impressiveness.

    All the best,
