Cheers guys, it has taken me a while to get into these too gamer mac, lovely figures and I think I was slightly intimidated by how nice I wanted the end result to be, that said reasonably happy with the outcome so far.

Thank you as always, trying to keep the tartan pretty simple for most figures I feel like if I overcomplicate it the pattern ends up lost anyway.

You're right,anyway wouldn't most of the men have worn  a fairly basic sett pattern in the main. :)

Absolutely, wearing what you can afford, less pattern and simpler colours being cheaper would make sense.

Following with interest.
Vodkafan & I have gone down the road of 40mm x 40mm for Government Infantry,
three bases (4 figs. a base) giving units of 12 figures.
Jacobites we are putting on 'Clan' (i.e. bigger) bases with 6 figures to a base.
To give the Jacobites the problem of lack of uniformity in unit size, we will have
small clans= 1 base, average clans= 2 bases & big clans= 3 bases. So far we have
(almost) a Government army,  but our Jacobites are only one small clan with an average
size lowland militia unit.
If you are interested pictures are (somewhere) on my thread, 'Stuf wot I dun' Sorry
but I can't remember what pages.

Above is the link (I hope). Just in case that doesn't work.
It is in the section 'Workbench' under the title 'Stuf Wot I Dun'

The Jacobite entries are on pages:-2 (Government line or 'Hatmen')
                                                 13 (Government Grenadiers)
                                                 17 (Government Artillery)
                                                 32 (First, small, clan. The Buchannans.  My wife's side of the family)
                                                 33  (Jacobite Militia, an averge size unit. The Strathboggie Militia)

Feel free to view all the other stuff on show. I appreciate possative feedback.
