This project came about after reading the Sharpe novels and wanting to start building a new and fully converted army at the same time. At first I'd thought of doing a 40k Imperial Guard army based around the 95th Rifles, but then I thought that would more as not lead me to a static style force which is not what I wanted. So then I read about the Highland Regiments and the Connaught Rangers who were used about Wellington as his assault troops. I kinda liked the idea of the 'Fighting Ladies' and so the 74th Scotia Highland Imperial Guard Regiment was born.
This is what I've produced so far. The idea is to make a 'kit' of them much like the catachan and cadian sprues but in resin so that I can mix and match the parts to make what I need:
odd bits and legs (plus a few bits I'm scrapping)
and a half finished model:
Hope you like them.
