They are Hallmark figures, true 15mm miniatures from their League of Augsburg range. I'm basing them for King's War by Bruce Bretthauer. I've never really encountered a set of rules that really works well for the period, but so be it. I'll need to play these a bit to determine how I can best tweak them for this particular period.
|Hallmark's 15mm Jacobites are made for the 1688 rising. Absolutely beautiful, proportional and well-detailed|
My highlanders are mostly painted and mostly mounted. They had a box disaster when one of Casey's cats knocked the box they were in off the dining room table. But they survived without major incident. I have enough figures painted for seven 18 figure units. Some still need mounting and I'm short a couple of standard bearers. I'd ordered a pack of command figures some time ago to resolve this problem, and it was supposed to include three standard bearers. It came with none. I do, however, have some extra pipers and clan chiefs, however. Needless to say, I'm not thrilled. I'll have to create a couple of standard bearers; it won't be the end of the world. These are little gems, definitely the best 15's I've ever painted.
|Another clan. They look fierce, sort of.|
|Viscount Dundee and his handful of mounted retainers.|
I have a long ways to go with the English. I had a big clot of troops painted for them, but they need remounting. I have enough troops. When they are all finished I should be able to field six or seven units of infantry plus cavalry and artillery. I also have a bunch of wagons and baggage from Hallmark's wonderful range of accoutrements. I'm hoping to progress fairly quickly through them and host a game in our Truants series this summer.
