Anyway I was able to make some minor progress on my AWI Scotsmen. Although I wanted to paint them as Black Watch originally I changed to 74th Regiment of Foot. I changed my mind because we're planning to present an AWI game at Crisis in November which is losely leaned on the penobscot expedition in 1779 and the events described in Cornwell's "The Fort" and during this campaign the 74th was present at Majabigwaduce.
However here are two pictures of the first nearly finished soldier. I'm surprised how the plaid turned out. While I was painting the dark green check I feared that the tucking would look unnatural... Anyhow there are some details to finalise. E. g. highlighting of the skin, the musket, slip knot in the hair and the the metal parts.
Anyway I hope you like it.
