Lovely work. Great painting and great use of figures. I really like the brownish tinge you've given the stone of the chapel - bang on, imho, for some stone buildings you find in parts of Scotland.

Fantastic work all round , suitably muted colours and groundwork which is redolent of moorland. Really well done!

Bloody Miniatures Scots. Count me in Richard. Ideal for skirmish and big skirmish settings throughout the Three Kingdoms.

Thank you all very kindly, gentlemen. 

First off, I too would buy Bloody Montrose. As much as I've enjoyed the conversions, I'd love to see some of these guys in trews and kilts, etc. I'll be using Bloody exclusively for my forlorn hope elements, and have already done much of the conversion work upon what I have on hand, but count me in for the full series if you do go down that path, Richard. This range is amongst my favorites and I'll continue to support it.

Kerry -- Thanks and the Jens range is from here -- https://www.3dprintterrain.de

And thanks to all of you who complimented the terrain and palette - I'm really trying to get the atmospherics dialed in!

A couple new additions....

Another Irish captain.



More hot Presbo action, though in need of a saltire.



Needed something for the cavalry to mark lost squadrons, so did a little greenstuff work and converted a WL plastic horse.



And here he is painted up.

Brilliant work with the sculpting.  :-*

I must admit to double taking, having thought the dead horse had an extra leg!  :o

Thanks, Furt! Extra leg?? No idea what you're talking about...  lol

Here are the Captain's bases, assembled for each respective force. Still a few more of these to do, but for now all the regiments I've fielded have a commander. I'm now moving on to more of my Bloody conversions which will be the basis of my Forlorn Hope groups.

The Covenanters (saltires are placeholders as I await some more of the excellent Flags of War banners)



Montrose's force



And a regiment of militia staged with their boss man.



Also, to give a sense of more of the rank and file, this is the frame gun battery. These were painted by my friend Rex, tho staged and based, etc. by myself.

Superb stuff! Love the Mac Colla figure, with bodyguards, launching himself in to the fray.  :D
Also really like the guns - great looking battery with the mules etc.

I think the man with the sponge is going to have his work cut out using it on those narrow barrels!

Excellent work.

Many thanks, all.  Been doing a bit of traveling, so just a small addition here.  I'm planning to field two 12 figure Forlorn Hope elements.  Here is the first batch for the Covenanters.  Some hat swaps, which entailed carelly removing the top of the heads to add bonnets and resculpt the hair as needed, then green stuffed some tartan on the other.  Eight more to go for these guys!
