RP No 130 Killiecrankie Commanders & Lokis Givaway


Originally myself and Reject Richard agreed to paint up an army each to play the rules Beneath the Lily Banners. I was to paint up the Flanders army for King William III while Richard would paint up the army of Louis XIV of France. As I get quite a bit more painting time than poor Richard, my Flanders army was soon complete, while Richard was lagging behind a little. So I came up with another plan. Paint up the jacobite army of King James, these can then be added to Richard's French to fill out the ranks, of course it didn't stop there, I had to paint up the Williamites as well, why i just couldn't use the English I'd already painted up for Flanders I don't know?????
Now that army is nearly complete, I've painted but not posted the last regts I need for the Irish campaign, so feeling a little lost I decided to cross the Irish Sea to Scotland and paint up the Scots Jacobites for the Battle of Killicranckie. The Scots are painted and have already been posted, here. Now once again I could have used the Flanders or the Irish commanders for Killiecrankie but being the fool I am, I bought more and painted them up as well and here they are!!!!!
They were entered in the Analogue Painting Challenge, earning me 69 points

  9. Mackay certainly looks the part of the CnC, but all of these would serve equally well as vignettes in their own right.

  10. Nice looking command stands. You could just make generic armies and play multiple theaters, but where's the fun in that?

  17. Ray,
    What a nice looking lot you have there! I like the way you did the bases, what's your trick or technique if I may ask? Also did you get my e-mail of my highlander pics?

    Take care.

  19. Beautiful work as always Ray and I always have admired the way you paint your horses.

    The reason you can't stop buying figures you don't really need is because you are a proper wargamer.
