Haggis Rampant; Fierce Foot Unit II

Or nine of them! The other three were featured in the Haggis Rampant; Islemen Men at Arms post earlier. I've got to admit to really enjoying painting this Islemen for Lion Rampant despite their tendency to disappear under a hail of arrows with alarming regularity!

If I'd had a little more time I would have decked out some of the Men at Arms and Fierce Foot in something akin to plaid, which although not in use at the time (in as far as we know) would have given them a certain flavour. I feel that this is something that I could get away with, like the Clan Cameron Livery which I have completely invented! In reality the checks of the time on the clothing were probably very fine in the weave and wouldn't be visible until one was very close.

I've actually still got a unit of Fierce Foot and two units of Bidowers to get painted up for the campaign but thankfully some Welsh Teulu that I had painted about ten years ago have been more than useful as stand ins for the rest of the retinue. The sharper among you may have already picked this up from the AAR's that I've posted.






























Back to the Hastings Game tomorrow evening.

Bye for now.

  3. Wonderful as ever! They look great. I love the really clean colours. Give the plaid a try, maybe? It's a pain but when I did some highlanders last summer, it wasn't as bad as I thought. Good luck, mate!

    1. Thanks chaps for the goodly words- very encouraging.

      Sidney, the lack of plaid has purely been down to a lack of time to get the mini's painted up due to the Hastings project. A bit of a shame really. Maybe I'll give it a shot if I can find the time :>)
