Not my scale but nice figures. One thing though, the ensign is clearly not an ensign. Should be an officer carrying the colour.

Ditto.

Hmm. I don't need them, but may have to buy them anyway.

Excellent sculpts, too bad not my scale.

The link does not work for me. The webbing of the standard bearer indeed suggests he is an NCO as he does wear a sash. I thought he might have been a full dress officer, but clearly not.

Although "at ease", if these chaps are at close of play on 18.06.1815 (or US version 06.18.15…funny that) they would be glad to even find an NCO wiling to carry the flag. By then the surviving occifers probably had more important things on their minds……

Not my scale but I love to see any new release not in an "heroic" pose. Not like the Airfix figures…..most of whom seemed to be doing things with bayonets that defied description. Actually the Highlanders were not that bad….just very small chaps

OK, two hours later the link works fine..

I blame that Putin chap and what his cyber folk have done to TMP…..it is all a conspiracy to convince us that they won the War of 1812 (well admit it, they did, the only one that really mattered)

My internet connection does now open this!

I just want a kilted Highland Regt, like this, at rest, in TOTS (28mm), at rest…to this standard. My Perry charging units have just arrived and they are brilliant. But they are so….heroic….butch even. I want something more camp…lounging around at leisure. Too much testosterone in the lead figures I must now tackle…..

In all seriousness, what I really want is a firing line of kilted highlanders, doing what they were known for….just blazing away. The Victrix bodies are great, but, and it may be me, but the faces are…weird at best….

I think the heads are unusable personally, but have wondered about getting the scaplel out and swapping Perry plastic heads, after shako removed, for Victrix bonnets, after humans removed. I do think the faces are that bad. The rest is great!

To nitpick, the piper couldn't really hold his pipes like that, they'd be on the ground in the next second. There is a drill for "Pipes -- Stand at Ease" and this looks quite different from the above.

To continue nitpicking: Aren't the sergeant's and musicians' kilts rather on the short side?
