Finally, I managed to complete the first 8 figures of the 42nd Highlanders and I have to admit to finding them challenging. The kilts were harder than I thought and after 2 attempts to accurately paint the dark tartan I went for this 'wet in wet' impression as being the best I could do. I was going to add the red over-stripe but it would seem that this may not have been present by 1815 due to tartan supply problems, although it was present up to 1812. Overall though and as a wargames unit I am happy with them. Now I have the next 8 figures including the drummer and piper to finish the 42nd, After that its straight onto the 92nd with their lighter tartan.
I don't think they stand close scrutiny when enlarged like this, but at normal size they don't look too bad I think!
