The Ball of Kirriemuir aka Targe

There's a wargames show 'Targe' coming up in Kirriemuir, home of J.M.Barrie, and just a short drive up the road.

So me and the nephew, the one who scalped Custer at Skelp, are going to take a drive up there on 12 November. And they have a painting competition, including the 'Black Watch Trophy', for a single figure, any scale, of British troops.

Funnily enough, I had a Black Watch officer from the American War of Independence in the Stash, and as I was feeling a bit under the weather, and not up to doing much else, I slapped some paint on him this afternoon. Having photographed him though, the camera is unforgiving!


  1. Thanks Willie. It's difficult to see in the camera phone but it is darker to the naked eye. It also has not picked up the tunic highlights.
