Hello all,

Here are 4 Black Watch Highlanders I recently completed. All they need now is basing and varnish.

Very nice. Who is the manufacturer? Do you know of any figs wearing tams?

They are musketeer/footsore miniatures. I think gripping beast carries some. Also Victoria miniatures as well as warlord games offer seperate heads. Are glengarry caps the right headgear for the Black Watch in the BEF?

I believe the glengarries are correct for WW1. However I believe the red and black diced hose is officer's kit. Dress was red and white for other ranks, and khaki for undress. In rececent searches, I've seen lots of figs for WW1 scots in Kilts with glengarries and helmets but very few in Tams.

I'm thinking of getting these link

These look to have correct hose.

Victoria miniatures are great. the heads are perfect.


Just have to find some enfields to replace the laser rifles.

If black and red stockings are not for privates, it seems I painted 4 sergeants. No chance I go back and repaint those
