AHPC 9 Donnybrook Jacobite Horse



The secrets out....I've been building another Donnybrook army!
And I haven't even finished the other yet!!!!!!

I can hear the groans already...

This time I've gone north, up to Scotland, for a 1689 Battle of Killicrankie
Highlander army. (Yes I do already have these troops in 15mm)
Above we have 6 x Reiver Castings Lowlander Scots Horse


And here we have another 6 x Reiver Castings, these are Generals or Officers, But
I shall be using them as Scots Gentleman Horse, from the disbanded 
Horse regt, "His Majesty's Own Regt of Horse". Commanded by the
 Laird of Claverhouse or Bonnie Dundee himself.
(They'll also be seconded into the Duke of Monmouth Sedgemoor army wink wink)


They may well be combined for a 12 figure unit as well?
Becoming Wallace's Horse, the only Scottish Horse regt present at the Battle of Killicrankie.


So these 12 x 25mm Cavalry earn me 120 points. This and another post pushed me right up to 8th place!

  7. Lovely mounted troops, Ray. I like the look of the Gentlemen Horse - their big floppy hats and feathers are marvelous.

    1. Thanks Dean. I wanted them to have that foppish look. They'll be crap on the game table though. they're far to posh to fight!

  10. Good looking miniatures!
    I have often heard of this strange thing some war gamers do; starting another army before the last is complete. 😀 (Might Of even done it myself).

  11. I wish you Posties lot weren't across the pond from me...then again, I'd likely hate you for how quickly you get things painted and ready for the table. At least from this distance I can merely envy...
