Cameron Highlanders (79th Regiment of Foot) – 28mm Victrix

Greetings All,

I should have posted this a good while ago, but life…anyway onwards.

Last summer I picked up 2 boxes of Victrix Highlanders.

It took me a good while to make up 6 bases worth (4 to a base) as I’m not a fan of building plastic figures… at least they’re plastic and not resin as superglue loves me more than the figures I’m building.

As I’m building a primary Peninsular Army I looked through the history books and I decided to get this unit to be  the 79th Regiment of Foot, the Cameron Highlanders.  The next Highlander unit I’ll build will be the Black Watch of course…

They took part in the following battles during the Peninsular Campaign.

You can find more info on them here (it’s a Wiki so might not be 100% accurate – but it’s easy to link!)

I posted them off to Toby at Artmaster Studios as I knew he’d already painted up some of my other 28mm Napoleonics and I prefer each army I own to have the same style of painting, plus I like the job he does, to me, one of the best historical painters in the business.  They now have a Facebook page, so go over and like them!

I picked up the flags from GMB Designs and then somehow forgot to include them in the parcel and then lost them in the house. After a while Toby managed to get hold of some and so completed the job.

Here they are, there’s 24 figures in total.  6 bases with 4 figures.

Splendid job I think and they match the Perry’s Infantry and Cavalry that I have a treat.

So what’s next? Toby has (and completed now!) some Perry’s Cavalry and some Perry’s Line Infantry to do. I’ll do more posts when they arrive back with me.

(And the Cavalry have arrived – just need to get some pictures!).

Cheers
