Scottish Men at Arms

Still making steady progress with my (not so) recent purchase from Claymore Castings. In order to have a change from painting Lymphads on a yellow background I have skipped a little further east into the Earldom of Mar for this weeks offering:

The Mormaer of Mar & Retainer.

I have no idea if the Mormaers of Mar ever allied themselves with the Lords of the Isles, but to be honest Scottish warfare & internal politics in the 14th/ 15th centuries is so incredibly byzantine anything is possible.
Final offering this week is another Macdonald retainer, in yellow.


  1. Very nicely done, love the shields...

  2. Thanks Phil, painting the shields is a nice challenge, but hard on the eyes.
