Border regiment

First of the regulars from the Border regiment who garrison 451.
Most of the garrison are terratorials but some regualrs are rotated through to provide a better trained reserve.

The fuzz from 451

Every blockhouse has a police presence as the regular soldiers and militia have only limited powers of arrest, these are 451's contingent, without their transport currently as I've only just ordered it.

well some more random bits that will fit in somehow to this all. Mostly trying to decide how to go with terrain, the options are free standing pieces on green boards, fully modelled terrain boards or expand my x-com style terrain set based on 20x20cm squares. Lots to think about.


Got a nice package from, one of their deals from the mofo range, lots of troops to use for the cumberland militia, plus there's a pack of troops armed with armalites that I might use for scottish infiltrators, who knows, well apart from me obviously.

What started it all

Well a long time a go I bought a 1/56 chieftain mk 5, then less long a go it got painted for no reason other than it existed. Somehow, this turned into I'll paint it f0r my cumberland militia and the whole modern reivers thing took off from there.

And the flag isn't wrong, that's the cumberland cross.
