Stuff from Scotland

Really couldn't think what to call this post, half term last week so took my daughter to Edinburgh for the week. We visited some castles, watched some films, bought a couple of bits and I painted a few figures. Apart from being forced into buying a very expensive Suicide Squad T shirt a successful trip 😀
 
Elsdon Motte and Bailey castle one of the best we have been to, but out of the way. Tower in the background.
 
The Castle from the village...
 
The Battlefield at Otterburn 1388 a really nice day, worth stopping off for half an hour
 
The Otterburn battlefield monument erected in the 1700,s marks the Scottish camp.
 
Hailes Castle one of the oldest in Scotland and only about 30 mins from Edinburgh dating back to C13
 

 
Truck bought for 50p Unimog by Siku
A black cab again 50 p scale may be slightly small
 
Some of the figures I managed to paint in the evenings for the up and coming Sealion game
 
German command
 
Lady Cavendish on her way to Zanzibar
 
Some local hired mercenaries for Lord Cavendish but can they be trusted ?

For those who made it this far we also watched the Great Wall action film which we enjoyed lots and Hacksaw Ridge lots of blood but also recommended 😀

  3. Fair bit of painting you shoehorned in there, and nicely done too. May check out Hailes castle when we are up that way for Carronade in May.
