Vodkafan! You mean you haven't got Humbrol No. 111 (Tartan paint)?

They never seem to have that one in when I go to the model shop...

Dunno what possessed me, but in the end I couldn't resist the idea of painting highlanders and have pledged 60 GBP. Well, hopefully for October -though I rather think December, being optimistic- I will have finished the Indian Mutiny project and will have a slot ready for the Highlanders... Now, I only need to find a compatible range of English, Hannoverians, French and Spanish (yep... I am already fantasizing about what-ifs where Bonnie Prince Charlie got the best of Cumberland at Culloden and French sent an expeditionary force to bolster the forces of their new best friend forever)

Not far off now. The campaign ends at 18:27 UK time tonight and we only have £250 to go and everyone gets the free MacDonnell of Keppoch miniature as a freebie.

Well, what an end to the Kickstarter and one that I did not foresee. I just want to give a huge thanks to everyone who has supported us and gave me real encouragement. The campaign has been really successful and the hard work starts now for me to get you what you have paid for.

In the end, we reached £9,830 and this will be sent to me within the next couple of days from Kickstarter. This morning I told myself I would give another freebie miniature if we reached £9.5k. As we did this very comfortably Iím happy to say that everyone who backed at the Clifton Moor pledge level will also receive a free of the Highlander in trews charging with the Claymore.

Now there are no records of the great Claymore being used in 1745 but thatís not to say it didnít happen. The last instance of them being used is assumed to be around 1690 in the Williamite Wars fought in Scotland. Iím of the opinion that one of the 1745 Highlanders could easily have taken their family heirloom to war with them. Also, he looks bloody awesome.

In the next few days, I will send out the details to collect your address and a few extra pieces of information. I will also provide updates on everything as it progresses. My sculptor has shown me some more work in progress shots and they are looking great. I will update everyone with the pics once they are completed.

Thank you again

Iain

Congratulations!

I did not back, as I have to get some Victrix plastics this month (now with their free worldwide shipping even more so), and would have trouble explaining TWO large payments to the wife  ::)

I expect to be visiting the range in the future, though, as I have always had a soft spot for this particular troubled period (starting with the RLS TV series 'Kidnapped' back in the 70's).

I did not back it either, as the mere idea of having to paint an entire army of car-rug and nightshirt bedecked hooligans appals me.  Even my AWI highlanders are in overalls (not trews!).  However, it does look like a fantastic deal for anyone who is happy to go blind painting plaid.

Halfords had loads of rattle cans last time I looked. It was in the section next to the camo paint. It's obviously not so popular here in the south. ;) :)
