Khurasan releases 15mm Scots Covenanters and Montrose Scots
« on: February 09, 2015, 04:35:47 PM »
We are very pleased to release Scots for the English Civil War period, as part of the wider conflict in the British Isles known as the Wars of the Three Kingdoms.  Not only did Englishman fight Englishman, but the Scots fought their own civil war, with the Marquess of Montrose leading a small force to a string of thrilling victories, and the Confederate Irish fought for their independence which meant, improbably, fighting for the King against an army of Scots Covenanters, and, later, the New Model Army.  

So one had the Covenanters fighting in Ireland against the Irish Confederacy, in Scotland against the Scots Royalists, and now and then in England too!

The Irish and Highlanders have been available for a while, so we now release the lowland Scots, Montrose Irish, and some humblies for the highlanders.  Note the Scottish troops below wouldn't just be suitable for Covenanter armies, but also for several of Montrose's field forces.  The highlander humblies are the poorer chaps, often in scraps of clothing, who tended to be given a polearm and stuck in the back ranks behind the heavily armed and splendidly attired highlanders.

For Irish Brigade command, use the Confederate Irish infantry command set.
