I really like the stone work - Iím getting the impression of lichen and moss covered stone. 👍

All the better for attracting moss troopers albeit the Highlands are a bit off their beaten path.  :)

Nicely done.

Thanks all. Comments very much appreciated. Iím not sure that Iíll get round to turfing it today as presently have the GS out, converting another 12 Scots. This latest group will include boys with slings, ladies with farm implements, men with axes, men with bows, plus a couple more muskets and pistols.

Regarding the painting of the cottage stone, itís a simple approach. The following colours are all Vallejo though for the bulk of them I actually use matched pots from the local DIY shed.

Base coat - chocolate brown
Heavy dry brush - sky grey
Light dry brush - 75% off white 25% sky grey
Washes - various dilute greens from Yellow Green to darker ones such as Russian uniform WWII

Re: Bonnie Scotland, 17thC: UD 10/10, more minis converted

Cheers Guy

Meanwhile, more minis have been converted.







The two slingers are from a Bicorne and a Renegade mini, both being examples that are significantly smaller and so work well as boys. Iím not sure that the Bicorne figure (formerly an artillery man with a bucket) was by Nick Collier but the other  (formerly a pike man at port) certainly was, as the NRC initials were etched into the base.

Btw, I absolutely love the size differences worked into the Bloody Miniatures range: tall ones, short ones, slim ones, stout ones, etc.

That's some very impressive conversion work there. You're going to have quite the collection by the end. Lovely stuff.

Thanks all.

Obvs itís far easier to convert a great mini than it is to convert a mediocre one  :)

I hope to have them painted before the end of the month.

They are really, really impressive conversions. It's certainly going to be a spectacular collection! :-*
