Amid all the creation of separate heads that went into our second edition American Revolution launch, I also gave some love to our Highlanders in trews. The original heads were removed, and the body was re-mastered and re-tooled from the green. That made the other ranks' bodies a little more robust than our first-edition versions.

The set has also been given a piper versus the color bearer of old, all of which now makes the new, official set.

This is my painted version. The beauty of the piper cast is the tartan and sock lines are actually sculpted onto the casting! Same for the bonnet dicing on all the solders' heads. The officers' tartan, hat dicing, and socks are not cast on, but the areas are smooth and broad enough to accept a brush without the job being cramped.

These figures are all from All the King's Men, and are 54mm metal. The set runs $40 USD UNpainted. You can see them on our AWI page: link

Strictly speaking, 'trews' (trubhs) would be nether garments made of plaid cloth or, as we might say today, tartan.

The brown Donation cloth was made into pantaloons or trowzers.

(+ not so much socks as 'hose')

Just sayin'
