As I was the Designated Driver for our little group this weekend, I found a quiet corner, a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage, and perused those deep thoughts only a sober man at a wine festival can have.
Apparently, Warlord Games had decided to sell some figures from its Bolt Action WW2 line as singles. In a follow-up, they announced individual sale of their Scottish Highlanders from their Pike and Shotte line.
Now, as it should be, it's still cheaper to buy the figs as part of a set, be it a large or small box. But there are enough unique poses that the first thing that came to mind was a Highlander warband for Mordheim.
Sure, the 25 vs 30mm makes them tall hobbits in kilts, but the range covers all the basic weapons (swords, pistols, bows, etc) and the poses are varied and memorable. Worst case, you buy just the figures you want at $2.75 apiece, best case you buy a Highlander boxed set with 18 figs for $40 and pick up a few extras and you'll have enough for TWO warbands!
Now to make the rules for "taunting" Scottsmen...
