1690 Lord Grand Prior's Regiment

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

1690 Lord Grand Prior's Regiment

Finished these chaps over the bank holiday weekend.

I should probably mention I had Ray's blog in front of me with a photo of the same regiment as a helpful painting guide!

Nice work.

As a matter of interest, I recently found online a document file of a diary by a Jacobite soldier called John Stevens. He says this regiment had a red coat with "fillamot" lining. Fillamot refers to the French "feuille-mort", meaning "dead leaf" colour.

You can read it here. It has some information on Jacobite uniforms.
