"Bydand"

Having worked in Aberdeen and as my Scottish Brigade for last years big game came mainly from the Gordon Highlanders, It was the obvious choice for the Scottish regiment to be added to my 1801 British army in Egypt.

The figures are of course the venerable Airfix Highlanders, and thanks to Daff who provided a replacement when one of them broke. A strange case of the brittle plastic disease, as the musket was still fully flexible and the whole kneeling figure just broke off the base at the ankles.

You can't beat the good old Airfix Highlanders. Nice work Will.

I can't quite get over how fine Airfix figures look when well painted. This is a good example, right here.

It always amazed me that they never produced these wonderful figures in hard plastic...

Funny. Exactly the same thing happened to one of my highlanders in preparation for today's Volley & Bayonet game. Uncanny. Maybe the Airfix highlanders got the bad batch of polythene.
