Rebased Scots Isles and Highlands

14 September, 2014

A while back I painted up enough figures to be able to field the Scots Isles and Highlands army. I’d cannibalized it a while back for SoBH. It looks like it will get a better army list in DBA 3.0 and actually be quite a balance selection of troops.

The entire army.

I may need to do the standard again. It’s a bit bright, but it is, though probably anachronistic to this period, the standard of the Isles.

It has a solid base of six 4Bd. These are a mixture of the Feudal Castings Scots thegns and other less armoured Scots for variety.

The close order fighters — six 4Bd.

This base can be supplemented with a number of different troops, giving flexibility in BGo and some archers to use against mounted.

The support — From left to right, 1x3Ax (Irish bonnachts), 2x3Wb (Galwegians), 2x3Bw (Highland archers), 1x5Hd (Highland rabble) and 1x2Ps (Highland skirmishers).

This army has already had a few successful outings that I’ve yet to write up. They’ve visited the New World and put Aztecs to flight.

    Like the rebasing, Mark. The ‘new’ list version looks far more promising than the previous ‘wall of blades with no Ps support’ under the 2.2 lists. Feudal Castings are lovely figures, too. Did you have to buy in extras for this (from Sgt Major Miniatures, USA)? If so, how was the service/delivery time?

    • Mark Davies Says:

      I agree; they’re some of my favourite figures. Luckily, I didn’t have to buy more. I had originally planned to have more 4Bd, so the elements lost to SoBH were made good from the lead pile. I’m quite good at buying figures; unfortunately I take a lot longer to get most of them painted.

      • Martin Says:

        I think most of us have the knack of buying at a faster rate than we paint! Every gamer has a lead mountain, mine shrinks and grow in a very random fashion…..
        Did you pics get onto the LKM/SMM website – they look familiar?

      • Mark Davies Says:

        I think the only time mine’s shrunk is when I’ve sold unpainted figures!

        Yes, they did use some of the pictures from my blog a while back; it’d be nice if they’d asked or had acknowledged doing it.

    Great rebasing, a very nice looking set of troops!
