Warlord Games Highlanders

My wargaming birthday present this year is a box of Warlord Game's Highland Clansmen boxed set and a blister pack of Highlanders.

Wow.  Do these figures have character.  And some are well fed.  They are perfect for the English Civil Wars and other periods up to Bonnie Prince Charlie.  There are a total of 19 figures including command . . . and the "taunting" highlander that comes only with the boxed set.  He will definitely be a status marker for Victory Without Quarter!  There is a nice variety of well armed figures for the first rank and the less well to do in the rear.  I particularly liked the figure that is taking some liquid courage!  As usual there is an information sheet with the box and a variety of flags.

I painted the Laird first who will be a brigade commander for the clans or possibly other units that will be added later.  

For Victory Without Quarter I will be mounting 5 to 6 figures per base.  So as not to drive myself insane painting plaid, I will be doing the figures a few at a time while I paint other units.  I have finished the first stand of figures and just need to finish the base. 

 I like the fact that the clansman with the lochaber axe is hefty.  Nice to see a variety of "body" sizes with the figures.

The wood base is from Litko.  An excellent product, fast service and great prices.

The flag is another free download from Wargame Designs that I have been using for all of my ECW units.


  1. Great looking Highlanders; and Merry Christmas to you!

  2. Dean - Thanks! That great praise coming from you. Merry Christmas to you too as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
