Ever since I finished the Black Watch and Gordons I've had the nagging thought at the back of my mind - "Oh God, the Camerons..." just the thought of doing yet another couple hundreds kilts, and intricate white lace...every time I took out the box I'd have a long look at them, then sigh and put them back. The first mental hurdle was the mere thought of undercoating that many of the blighters. But now that hurdle is cleared and I'm looking forward to getting started on them.
The table isn't long enough to fit a single firing line so, for the moment, there are some companies in a second row. Each company is 30 strong not including their serjeants, officers, and drummers.
Looking forward to adding a couple of these fellows to the ranks when they become available. http://schnitzel-miniatures.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/rude-highlanders.html
Five 8-horse teams of Artillery drivers trot past in the background. These photos were taken at midday - gives an idea of how dark it has been.
This will probably be the last bit of work I can do for this project until the Olympics are over. I have family coming to stay from Australia and things are going to be pretty hectic and crowded for 3 weeks - probably not the best time to fill the kitchen with paints, brushes and small metal Scotsmen.
