Scots Isles and Highlands Army

Scots Isles and Highlands Army

I’d planned to use the Vikings for the Islemen, but the Scots Thegns look so good I got some more and have mixed them in with some Scots axemen and spearmen.

Painted so far are:

6 x 4 Bd (Islemen, 1 = cmd)
I need a new photo of these figures

Highland rabble and skirmishers1 x 5 Wb (Highland rabble)

Highland Archers4 x 3Bw (Highland archers)
1 x 2Ps (Highland skirmishers)

Still to paint:

1 x 5Wb (Highland rabble)

I have enough figures painted to use this army if I use my alternative list.

  • Alternative Army List

1 x 4Bd (cmd)
5-11 x 4 Bd (Islemen)
0-2 x 3Bw (Highland Archers)
0-1 x 2Ps (Highland Skirmishers)
0-2 x 5Wb (Highland Rabble)
0-3 x 3Wb (Galwegians)
0-2 3x Ax (Irish Mercenaries)

If any Highlanders are used, at least 1 3Bw must be used. The biggest difference is that the number of Warbands are greatly increased, from 1 to up to 5. Also the Irish mercenaries provide some handy rough terrain troops.
