Highland Brigade

I picked up a load of Britains Deetail figures early last year.  All in ceremonial dress, the figures included Guards, bands and these Highlanders.  In all, I have enough to form five 20-figure infantry battalions.  The Highlanders will form a battalion each of Gordons and Black Watch, with the 'spare' pair of officers and trio of pipers making up the brigade HQ.
So why am I sorting them out now?  Because it occurred to me that as long as no-one looks too closely they could be just the lads to add to my forces for the forthcoming Waterloo game.

If only they had some Irish hussars to keep them company...

That reminds me - a (West) German bloke I knew back in the '80s used to play loud bagpipe music in his car to torment East German border guards.

I did it to torment Koreans, same principal....)

And they say good fences make good neighbors.

Tim,

I have almost as many Highlanders as you do, and together we could probably field a Scottish Infanty Division.

All the best,

Bob

Nice to see that neither of us got carried away buying figures then...
