Scottish Schiltons

When I recently received my order from Old Glory of war 1812 figures, I had at the same time also ordered some of their medieval Scottish to give a bit of variety to my Schiltrons for the Scottish wars of independence. With the vote later this year for independence and the associated reinvigorated enthusiasm for the period, I intend to paint the odd unit. I do not want to do a demo yet for this era for at least a couple of years so I am really just stock piling painted units for the moment. I have over the last few weeks started to paint them up. My current units are made up from EBOB miniatures, these are nice but slim, expensive and unfortunately poor delivery (at least with my last 2 orders). I also have some very old Ral Partha/citadel, these are too small really, true 25mm but I just love the detail so I tend to mount them on a small piece of mounting card to bring them up to the height of the others. Once based they do not stand out too much, I hope. I intend to build my armies around the DBA army list for campaign gaming but will be using the Canadian Wargames Group rules Flower of Chivalry” for the table top battles.CWG

I will post units as and when they have been painted and based.

Here are some flags of knights that were at the battles. They may need resizing. They were a free download from a site but unfortunately I have forgotten which one? If anyone knows please email me as I remember it being a great site and they deserve all publicity.
