From TimB: 28mm Great War Highland Infantry (70 points)


One of the big guns in the Challenge to date has been Tim and he provides a parting shot before Santa arrives with this fine unit of 14 Great War Highland infantrymen.


These are 28mm Renegade miniatures depicting Scottish troops in early war uniforms (no covers for the kilts, tams, etc).


You will notice the rags over some their faces. This was an early (and desperate) effort to resist the effects of German gas attacks. It is said that many men urinated in their kerchiefs as the ammonia helped to neutralize the agents in the chlorine gas - pretty grim stuff.

These lads will give Tim a further 70 points to his tally, putting him firmly in the lead. For now.

  2. Well they just look cool! Got some Great War miniatures myself, but don't know when I'll get a chance to paint them up. Seeing this makes me want to push them further up the ladder of to do.
