Hi guys,
was wondering if any of you fine people knew were I could get some British highlanders for NW Europe? I know by 1944/45 they would be wearing the same uniform as everyone else, but I'd like some models with tam o'shanters on to break up the company a bit.
I know wartime miniatures sells a pair, but id rather not pay £15.00 GBP for postage to the UK

The British Infantry set by Valiant Miniatures has a head option with a beret that could with a little work act as a tam – I used them for my Canadian Scottish Regiment

I am not aware of any manufacturer who makes 20mm WW2 Scottish Infantry. However, Raventhorpe do a range of heads for head-swaps one of which (BH04) is with a Tam O'Shanter.

Matchbox 8th army set has a number of Tam O'Shanter heads…

TunnelRat, How do Raventhorpe heads compare scale wise to PSC?
Marc, I've looked at that kit, but there's too many models in it I'd have no use for, but if all else fails, that will be my go to kit

Panda Pyre – I can't say how they compare as I haven't used them before. Ask them for a sample, they will probably send you 1 or 2 so that you can see for yourself.

Raventhorpe 20mm will not mix with any other figures. Too Big! Try whoever manufactures Platoon 20 nowadays.
