One Finished Covenanter

Here is the first of the finished Covenanters for you. This chap, as stated before, is wearing a uniform influenced by the standard British uniform of the day, the Service Dress, but where the earthy, khaki colours are the order of the day for the standard British infantryman here the colours have somewhat changed. Looking back to a time when the Covenanters held influence and power in Scotland, the time of the English Civl War, here they are revived the colours of old and updated it for the modern day. So the Hodden Grey of the  old Covenanters have been reborn in his jacket with a slate grey used for the trousers. In keeping for the Covenanters his Tam O Shaner is in the traditional blue colour with a ECW Covenanter flag being used as a flag and his webbing is the standard Pattern 08 Webbing, armed with an SMLE rifle. His armband reads "One Religion, One God". I hope you like him.

  1. Very effective use of the traditional colours. Your explanations of the history behind the colours and markings make him come to life.

    Well done!
