Highlanders au go-go!

Here's the latest off the workbench; the 92nd Gordon Highlanders! Tartan kilts and diced bonnet bands just about sent me cross-eyed. I've also added some pictures of my HaT British light infantry that I'd painted as the 52nd, but after settling on painting this particular brigade, I changed to the 71st Glasgow Highland Light Infantry by adding the diced border to their shakos. One reference I saw seemed to indicate a dark blue shako or a black shako with a red pom-pom on the crown, but I've gone for the standard stovepipe with the diced border.

Can't have Highlanders without a piper!

Colour party. Made a real hash with the King's colour; glued it upside down, then tore it off the staff trying to remove it. Doesn't look too bad in the photo, though!

I love this pose

The officer from HaT's only other British infantry set set, the light infantry, which was pretty much rubbish, except for the officer. He has a head swap with the newer infantry set which was much clearer than the original

  1. Very nice blog, you have done a great job on the 20mm troops, I had to look twice to make sure that they were not 28mm.

    Bonne chance,
