Flags of War 28mm Jacobites

Hi all,
Backed this kickstarter last year, and now the figures are here, I'm now working out why I wanted to paint tarten again!
All flags and figures by Iain at Flags of War, and awesome they are too.
So, based to fit with a friend down the club (not how I would do them, but life is a compromise) to play Black Powder, the first three units of Lowlanders (these may expand to four soon) are done. The Lowlanders will be smaller units, as they will deploy in line and platoon fire, as opposed to highland charges!
Updated the Lowlanders with 9 more figures that gives me four units. I also discovered I have enough trooper figures for another unit, so another update soon!
Three new stands


And with their units.


The original batch.

On the way to Derby, or on the return?

 The Manchester Regiment



 Third Regiment, they will get colours one year.

After my friend John pointed out I had my guns wrong on my MkI Vospers, I bought the Warlord Games British weapons pack add-on. Well worth it. I also bought myself a tanker while visiting Boards and Swords, just because you need a target!

Under escourt by a Vospers

Decided my 10 Vospers needed some serious fire support, so I bought a set of Fairmile D Dog Boats
Really nice kit, had a lot of fun putting these together and painting them.








Nick Overland (of Sabresquadron fame) kindly donated his pair of Vospers to me too. Is 10 too much? I think not!



ID numbers on the sternsr as last time, it was getting hard to spot which boat was which! 


Mike sent me these to add to my collection. Two more S Boats (Ace of Club and Spades for recognititon) and the Limited Edition Das Boot U96

Escorting her home...

Looks good, the logo is accurate from the series and film! :)
