28mm ECW Covenanters & Highlanders


Here are a few more photos of some of my older ECW figures. First up are a group of dour Scottish Covenanters manfully manning a frame gun (probably a fire-sale Swedish import from the German Wars). As opposed to the typical Covenanters (you know, the ones 'who don't like sex as it may lead to dancing') - I like to think that my Covenanters represent that small partying faction that we don't often hear about. Anyway, here are some blue-bonneted blokes ready to bang away with a frame gun which was probably more a threat to them as it was to the enemy. Old skool 25mm Foundry castings which are pretty small by today's standards (actually, they sorta look like Hobbits, don't they). 


Next are some charging Highlanders from Redoubt Miniatures. I find the animation on this series of castings is great. Again, pretty large models here - probably close to 35mm in size. I have more of these lads in storage but this gives you a impression of how they look massed up in an irregular formation. 


Many in this series are multi-part models, often with separate heads and torsos so they can provide some variation in their poses.

  2. Are Redoubt's Scots really that big? All mine from Eureka and Warlord are 25-28mm. I had been admiring Redoubts for awhile but I might have to skip them now if they really are that large ):

    1. Yes, they are strapping lads to be sure. Personally I don't have a problem with them mixed with my other castings, but to each there own.
