The old Mesopotamia collection grows and grows.

This time it's a Battalion of Highlanders, it took some doing mind, finding the figures, I had to search far and wide to get, HQ, Infantry and MG. Thanks to Minifigs (yes, that Minifigs), Empress and Great War Miniatures the project was completed.

Links on the blog to the figures as well as the book "With a Highland Regiment in Mesopotamia" which inspired the unit. The book is available free on Project Gutenberg due to its age so get clicking. I love learning new stuff and this book is full of personal experiences of the author.

Every day is a school day with Yarkshire Gamer !

Wonderful. I'll have to try ITLSSU with 25mm. Always looked at that as a 15mm or smaller scale game.

Somewhere I have a photo of Highlanders at Salonika in kilts with the slouch hat. Always thought that would be a neat conversion.
