The army of the Lord of the Isles (1411) is now based up:
Donald MacDonald of Islay, Lord of the Isles, and his Islemen in the center, Ardnamurchan to the left, Duneyveg and the Glens to the right. The Clan Cameron close behind:


Malcolm Mackintosh (the white banner), commanding the right and the array of the Chattan Confederation:


Red Hector MacLean (the white tower banner), commanding the left and supported by the McLeods (carrying the Fairy Flag):


Immediately contesting the MacDonald invasion of Ross, the MacKays met them in battle a Dingwall.
Angus MacKay in the center, his brother Rory to the left and Hugh Monro to the right:

The presence of the Monros is not confirmed (one source having them with the MacDonalds at Harlaw) but their blood rivals, the MacLeods, were with Lord Donald and that likely decided the issue.

Looking good! Impressed by your recreation of the roll of Clans and their standards, also.  :-bd
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Brilliant! Love the yellows, they really make the army pop. Bet they're a bit "ol'reekie", not that being compared to Lowlanders would make them happy :D

(not that my painting can do the sculpts justice)

The evidence here would contradict that statement, Bill!

+1 to that!

Great to see some of the new sculpts painted up. I've got a few in progress at the minute.

I have admired your Irish army for a couple years now. Obviously the new sculpts will make a great addition to it.
