I had these figures for years but never really had the right rules to use them with. The much anticipated Field of Battle 3 now covers the period so I thought I’d redo them. I’ll post the rest here as they come.
I’m pleased with how they’ve spruced up so far.
If you’d like to see the rest of them here’s a link.

Thanks Willz. Yes 15mm, Essex, QRF, Peter Pig. These regiments are mainly Essex. Some of the others also have Matchlock and Khurasan 15mm.

I’m having to get a move on as FOB3 is being posted to me today. New additions to my forces include some Scots Lancers, Argyle’s regular Highland Regiment and the first of Montrose’s Highlanders. Mixing manufacturers is working well for me.
There are more pics on my blog.

Field of Battle 3 has now arrived. My thoughts on how it will play for Montrose and the Covenanters are now on my blog. If it’s of interest here’s the link.

More painting progress on the project. I have the Gordon Horse, two units of Highlanders and the first of the Irish regulars done,
The Irish above and the rest are at:

This is a great enterprise.
I’m very impressed and not a little in awe of the speed of production.
I know you said you had the basis of the armies already but even so…
Lovely looking army.08/06/2020 at 15:45 #137817
I think I’ve now passed the half way mark for both sides. A lot of the figures were already painted and just needed a touch up and rebasing. Currently I’m stuck waiting for some Matchlock pipers from Caliver so I can finish off the Highland command stands.
Meantime just one Covenanter infantry regiment to go and two of cavalry and they’re done.

I thought I’d have a look at what Iain Lom MacDonald the great Highland Bard could tell us about how Highlanders fought at the Battle of Inverlochy. He saw the whole battle and walked the ground afterwards. If that sounds like your sort of thing do drop by for a read.

Fascinating that Highland bards in the seventeenth century were still doing the job that the likes of Aneirin were doing in the early medieval period.
Thanks for posting.
Good link to Capercaillie and Alasdair Mhic Cholla Chasda too.19/06/2020 at 12:31 #138424
You know Guy, that was my very thought and the same metaphor the blue steel.
Glad you enjoyed it and the Capercaillie.

I’m now well past the half way mark on Montrose and the Covenanters. Most of everything is done and I’m currently waiting for a few command figures to complete the infantry.
One thing I have learned from Iain Lom is that Highland archers were still quite common in clan forces. The number of poetic mentions of bows and archery outstrip mentions of guns and shooting. I learned this too late and my Highlanders tend not to be bow armed.
There are lots more pics on my blog.
