Lastly I prepared my next unit: The 42nd Rgt. of Foot "Black Watch".
Because of the good price I bought some Victrix plastic miniatures. To me they look really great. The details are nice and crisp and I like them better than the Royal Foot Artillery by Victrix I recently painted.
Although there are some promising decals by Warflags on the market but I decided to try my luck with painting them myself. On the World Wide Web I found a nice tutorial by John O'Brien (Link). He explains a kind of simplified tartan for toy soldiers and I used the following colours:
- Vallejo Model Colour 050 "Dark Prussian Blue" as base colour
- Citadel "Dark Angels Green" for the check
- Vallejo Model Colour 072 "Deep Green" for the brighter center checks
- Vallejo Black for the thin lines between green and blue
