Been pushing hard to get Montrose's foote finished and Strathbogie is my last infantry unit on the Royalist OOB for Auldearn. Below are some WIP shots of the complete pike and command. These fellas just need to be based and provided with pikes and they are ready for the table.
Before I base them I will finish the shot sleeves which I am working on just now. I don't add the pikes until I am basing so I can position the individual infantry models to make sure that the colours and pikes don't interfere with each other and that the unit looks good together.
Here are front/back shots of some of the pike men...
Now some shots of the command stand and remaining pike men. The hodden grey clad pike men without plaids pictured with the command below were finished first as they were faster to paint.
And finally a close-up of a painted Gordon Colour to show how I hand paint and shade the colours. This is not the same one used in Strathbogie's Regt, I plan to use this for a Gordon command stand.
Will post some WIP pictures of the shotte sleeves once I have made some good progress. It will be a stretch, but aiming to have the Strathbogie Gordons done by month end, then onto the Gordon Horse.
