A happy new year to you all ! It looks like I am always saying this but this unit has taken an age to complete . It's the first highland unit I have painted in nearly 25 years so things didn't exactly flow it didn't help that I was going to do the 71st so I painted in all of the base colours (yellow facing) . Then had a casual read to get some background details only to find that the regiment lost its kilts somewhere between 1809-10, that was a bummer !
So the 71st became the 42nd and downhill it went from there, the kilt wasn't to much problem some dots lines and some wash to make it blend in . As the Black Watch are a Royal regiment they have the blue facings I have painted the officers in grey trousers often worn for mounted duty . The base is mdf 2mm thick 30mm wide 25mm deep with static grass and flowers .
These are for sale if you are interested or if you would like something painted then please contact me . Enjoy your painting and gameing until next time........
Regards Gavin .
