In the middle of a great project.

Alternate Jacobite Rebellion 1745

That's correct, folks. Tartans, sporrans and jocks a'strappin'. Conceived by Chris Mantzakos to throw fear into the hearts of pasty-faced Englishmen everywhere, for honour and love of the wee prince of Scotland with a strange Italian accent.

What if the Royal Ecossais raised a second battalion? What if British and Irish regiments joined the Uprising? What if the French made more of an effort? This may have been the army at Culloden.

So far only the Highlanders and Ecossais are complete. Figures are Front Rank generally, the dogs are Foundry and anything else I could scrounge, flags are handpainted, the tufts are Leadbear.

The basing is Impetus, following my idea of each being a small diorama in and of itself, reflecting the nature of warfare and the style of the individual army and unit.

Glendessary's Ruddy Banner; Camerons of Glendessary, although sometimes attributed to Lochiels.

More pictures to come.
