One of the side effects of playing Volley and Bayonet (V&B) with 20mm plastic figures is the accumulation of certain types figures in excess of what you can use. A classic example is that of Scottish Highlanders in British Napoleonic forces.
|Command stand for a Klantyre force|
|Klantrye has a proud military tradition|
|The original painter's attempt at a tartan pattern is very subdued in these photos|
|A proud regiment of Klantrye: The Glenmoorloch Borderers|
|The original painter made quite a nice impression of a tartan on these figures|
And while perfectly nice sets of 18th century Highlanders exist, these figures have the advantage of me already having them, having a good range of poses that work well for making V&B stands of regular infantry, and of being quite forgiving of my restoration techniques.
