87th & 88th Highlanders for the SYW

Post by RMD »

No offence to any Scotsmen reading this, but God I hate Highlanders, with their stupid bare knees and irritating crissy-crossy bits! I've previously painted tartan for the AWI, Napoleonic Wars and even the VBCW, but these will be my last. I'd love to wargame the '45, but I think that might be the path to an early grave.

Anyway, I've done the 87th & 88th Highlanders for the SYW in Germany, so read all about it on the blog. These are Eureka 18mm, with flags by Maverick Models:

Cheers EB,

The basing is very simple. Just artists' mounting board (Dalerboard), stick 'em on with UHU glue, paint with thinned PVA, dip in Tesco play-sand, paint with Humbrol 29 Dark Earth, lightly brush with Humbrol 94 Sand and then paint patches with thinned PVA and dip in Woodland Scenics Blended Turf flock. Some people hate it, but it works for me.

Looks far more realistic than many other basing outcomes I've seen using pretty much the identical method - so keep on keeping on.
