Just got the over 120 days warning on my diary! Golly, has it been that long? Where does the time go?
Lots of rebasing - the never ending battle of the indecisive and followers of trends. Lots of rules investigations and play-throughs

Bought some Pendraken already painted Jacobite Pikemen during Hind's summer sale and converted some to make a horde of clan levies.
I painted the bowmen and touched up the rest (varying bonnet shades mainly). The major change was removing the pikes (or shortening in some cases) and taking polearms from various Pendraken Elizabethians and Medievals and adding them in:



I stalled two months ago on three groups of Berbers (proxied from Pendraken Mahdists) for Tangier. They are 95% done.
MUST. GET. THEM. FINISHED.

The adhesives in the background are represent my three stage gluing approach to weapon, head and body part swaps.

They do the job nicely, mate! On a similar note if I ever get round to finishing my Ottomans (three years and counting...), and run out, I might have a look at the Mahdists for extras - they're supposed to be opponents for LoA/Turkenkrieg era European forces but are little c16th if you look too closely Wink

Do they do heather as basing material?

The great Billy Connolly once pointed out the impossibility of marching through heather. He's right too. Last time I tried it, I nearly broke my ankle in a rabbit hole.

I think you're awfully brave doing head swaps in 10mm. If I did it, I'd end up with a lot of absurdly truncated figures.

Thanks folk!

@ Pixie - one thing that's nagging at me about using the madhist as musketeers is they are firing either Martini-Henry's or Lee Metford's (can't tell but look modern) with slings. I've painted them but using them is a stretch even for me. OK, I'll use them but waiting for the right stuff to be put in production so I can replace them.

@fsn - I use Siflor blossom tufts for the heather http://www.fiferhobby.com/silflor-blossom-tufts/. I went a little happy with it.

It is not bravery, it is the willingness to go out in public with small bits of little men glued to your fingers.

I know the feeling with flock and static grass!

Mahdists - bum, on the rifles. Wonder if there's anything in the new Indian Mutiny range to pilfer Cheesy

Only the highland variety. Lowland ones nest in trees.

I'm given to understand that the haggis also often infest the sheep both sides of the Highland Line (and likely in Wales as well).

They're good d-Guy, but miss a bit to be authentic Scots.

1) Everyone appears to be sober
2) No-one is flashing his backside
3) All those blue bonnets suggest Rangers fans. You need some hoops.*


However, what I was going to say is that I'm quite enthused by that basing. (Not for figures obviously**, because even Highlanders aren't daft enough to clart heather aboot aa da time), but for scenic items, and possibly as rough ground markers. I plan to leave work early to visit my local model shop. There I shall purchase a redheaded catwalk model and ask her if she knows where to buy tiny heather.***

That's what I love about this forum. The cross fertilisation of ideas.****  Cheesy



* See association football, Scottish Premiership
** FSN's pet hates #3 - terraformed basing
*** That's tiny heather, not Tiny Heather.
**** and the Top Totty thread*****
***** and because I'm banned from every sensible forum
