Byron returns from his recent foray of the grim 41st Millennia to the warm, homey trenches of the Great War.
Here is another unit for my Canadian WW1 force. This is a section of Canadian Highlanders from the 16th Battalion, and more specifically a section that was amalgamated into the 16th from the The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada from Hamilton Ontario. While the other 3 regiments than went into making up the 16th Battalion were all from the Prairies, there was this one regiment from Ontario amalgamated in.
The miniatures are mainly Great War figures, however I have a big man from Musketeer Miniatures in command of them. Again, as with the German submission earlier in the week, the Great War figures are great, lots of detail, good proportions, low flash, however have horrid facial details. If I didn’t know better, a few of them, I would have sworn were cat people from a sic-fi game… They really need to do something about that. I guess, since the figures are so cheap, I really shouldn’t complain, but it does bug me that the faces wreck otherwise beautiful miniatures.
I continued this section in much the same colour scheme as my first section of highlanders, other than changing up the pompom on the top of the Glengarry to the red that the regiment used. I also of course changed the tartan over the the Black Watch tartan, which is probably Curt's favourite since it is very close to the Campbell tartan. These figures have very little of the kilt peeking out from under the apron though so it does not show up that well.
Also included is a “beaver free” activation card.
I dunno, now I'm kinda missing the plucky little buck-toothed guy...
Beautiful work Byron. I continue to be amazed with your brush control. This is especially shown with your subtle work with the Argyll tartan (and it IS a lovely tartan - dark like by cold, cold heart. ;-> ). Wonderful stuff.
These eleven Canadian jocks will give Byron 55 points.
