More Montrose Irish

Here is my second regiment of Montrose Irish this time advancing and loading. The figures are once again the fantastic Bicorne ECW range. The flag is from Flags of War where the generous Ian sent me free enlarged ones to replace the smaller ones I had. The old ones were very nice, but the new ones are even better both in quality and size. Thanks again Ian if your reading!!

The principle behind this regiment is the same as the other one I did in that I took quite a few liberties in my impression of the hard fighting Irish Brigade and thus is not an attempt on a direct reflection of what they looked like, but I still hope it comes off looking if not exact then somewhat believable.

I'm looking to shift into the Scottish portion of the army soon with Renegade and Redoubt figures making up the lion share of those regiments, but I probably will come back and do a third Irish regiment at some point. I'm not sure if I want to paint tartans on my Scots as that's horribly time consuming!
Thanks for viewing!:-)
