Against all Traitors! - The Strathbogie Regiment, Montrose and the Frame Gun

The Montrose forces were bolstered by the Strathbogie Regiment. At one stage, they were one of the best equipped regiments in Scotland, they began their life on the side of the Covenantors at the beginning of the the war and later joined Montrose to fight the Royalist cause.
Below are figures form the Warlords Games plastic box set painted in the colours of the Strathbogie regiment (which is pretty much hodden grey- the same as everyone else!) They flew a version of the Royal Colours with God save the King and "For God and the King and Against all Traitouris" emblazoned on it.  That would have really got up the nose of the Covenantors!

Here he is! The great Montrose Himself.  A Warlords game lead figure. He was an absolute treat to paint and will lead the army well!

A Scots frame gun.  Complete with leather clad barrels and the tar paint job.  Those Scots were sure big on practicality!


  1. A great way to start the new year, a great looking army!! Very nice
    Happy new year

  2. Lovely work...a delight to the eye. Not sure how delightful they would be to any Covenanters they encountered but they sure do make a nice looking regiment. Well done!
