    I,just finished this up two days before we left for Texas for Eaglequest and to visit our son and his family. We also had a great visit with Guy while we were down there.

    The kilt pattern was from "Quang's" SBS on this site and also his webpage. I made a slight change but liked the colours that was used.

    He was voted "Best Figure" at Eaglequest.
    This is a fabulous casting and great fun to paint.
    All comments and critiques are appreciated and thanks for looking.
    Hope you enjoy him as much as I did painting him.

    Cheers

    Outstanding paintwork.
    I have here a laying on my desk several months a Highlander from the Jacobite war. He is almost finished. The only lack is the Tartan on the rope.
    You triggerd me to finish him.

    I've seen some stunning work on this forum since I've been here, but every so often one comes along that knocks you out - and this is one such figure.

    Scotsmen and tartans aren't usually my thing, but I have to say John this is a breathtakingly excellent paint. Perfect in every way and set off beautifully by some nice groundwork and a lovely base.

    Well done on your "Best Figure" award. Thoroughly deserved IMHO.
