This has been my first Kickstarter and really impressed by the whole thing, what really stands out is mainlyhow Iain has communicated the whole way through.
And the first thing you see on opening is more of the same, great communication and messaging.
I seriousley considered this when the Highlanders were released through Kickstarter but held off, the release of the Government troops was more than I could handle especially with the quality of figures already produced so I waded in, initially with 15 packs and then added a few more at a later date which Iain ensured got added to the same order to reduce my postage.
So as well as my free flags I also got a couple of Jacobite flags too, Generic Jacobite in red and Royal Ecossais to compliment Cobhams Dragoons, Barrells foot and the Glasgow Loyalist Militia. Below in order from right to left.
If I have any criticism there are two horses and I would really prefer 3, the riders fit OK rather than perfect but these are tiny quibbles with some fantastic sculpts. I have two packs of these, added to the command thats 9 so an 8 man group for Sharp Practice and a leader figure.
Although part of an earlier release I also picked up some Jacobites with these guys. The Royal Ecossais command is probably my favourite pack of the range, they are just lovely. Cant wait to paint them. The Kilted NCO is particularly nice. I am really looking forward to these with the fantastic flags and just hope I can do them justice.
I picked up the Lowland command pack to add to my other Lowlanders, another lovely set, I had to photograph these again as I delted the original. The Cockades do mean I need to decide if they are Jacobite or Loyalist before painting them but given the aggressive dynamic poses I think they go too well with the Flakgs of War Jacobites to sit anywhere else.
The Highlanders I have not made much of a start with just a couple painted so these will be handy, again dynamic figures which paint up really well, one lost his bayonet as I tried to bend it back in shape as it was bent over in the bag, a bit of this is inevitable with bayonets but these figures do have quite robust bayonets.
