AWI Highlanders (6)


I had meant to post these photos when I had the charging figures all painted up, but those have been delayed so here are some initial photos of fully completed King's Mountain AWI highlanders.  As I've mentioned before, I've been working on a large commission for KM owner Bill Nevins for the past 6 months.  In due course I'll post my response to "commission painting", but suffice to say here that it's been rewarding work.  These figures here are unvarnished and lacking some final touching up.  The purpose of these photos is to show the various firing line figures from the range, and the various ways in which they can be painted.  Here is not the place to go into detailed discussion of the likely colours of overalls or whether the 71st wore tartan trews in the south.  I'll do that when I get around to painting units for my own collection.
