Thin red line

Italeri Napoleonic Highlander infantry - one of the oldest Italeri plastic sets re-done with the same mould (which means bucketloads of flash and mould marks and lines). The 25 Highlanders based and ready for action, which they saw later on Sunday and performed well but had been decimated.

Went with the lighter shade on the bases; now these might be not historically accurate, but the figs at least are lovely and quite easy to paint. Italeri's done a better set of Scots already but I can't find it anywhere.

Command; no officer in this set but the guy who holds the colors. The flag is for the red clans of Jackewline but can be ignored as the general color pattern follows the originals.


Wounded man

Some fierce warriors these are. The next in the line is some Scot Greys, the horses are already basecoated along with the Swedes I won on ebay.


  1. Splendid! Loved doing this myself in 28mm not sure I could have coped with the smaller scale; the eyes are not what they used to be.

    1. Thanks, gladly I still have a good sight but details can be still an issue sometimes.

  2. You've done good work there Andrew, lovely!
