News of a New Book for Solway

Yes indeed back of the Very British Civil War wagon and the next book for Si at Solway this time its the Armies and Enemies of the Scottish Republic, eat heart out Alex Salmon we beat you to it, lol. To get the whole thing rolling here is the first of the illustrations and this one is of a Scottish Highland Militiaman. He has his Tam O'Shanta on, which I my going to paint blue, he has a dirk and claymore on his left hand side and a kilt, yes Ray more bloody tartan, though I am not totally sure which clan I am going to paint. If you have any ideas on this please let me know, but I might on for Douglas.
