First British Batallions finished
First up is the 32nd Cornwall Regiment of Foot, 1st Battalion and the 79th Cameron Highlanders, 1st Battalion, both of the 8th Brigade.
Im pleased with how these turned out, despite all the worry I had over the tartan on the Highlanders. Saying that its hard to notice the tartan, and I think the kilt effect is shown better by their bare legs and their sporrans than my attempt at showing a tartan in 6mm!
Now on to the 28th North Glos- my local regiment. They will be fun because unlike other foot regiments they retained their stovepipe shakos and the shakos had a unique back badge to symbolise their bravery in fighting back to back in Egypt.
