Jings and crivens – the Highlanders are here! The eagerly awaited Highland Clansmen metal boxed set is now available and as if that wasn’t enough we also have the spectacular Highland Hero miniature available too!
In an age and culture where personal strength and courage counted for much, the Highland hero was still a man of standing. Warlord’s Highland hero is stripped down to just a belted plaid, so wild is his determination to close with his despised foe. His foes were legion, and could be cowering Covenanters, astonished English troops or as likely another loathed Highlander from a despised rival clan!
We have our hero wielding an ancient weapon, the double handed great sword that could smash down pikes or horsemen alike. This man is clearly the stuff of legends, bulging with energy and muscle and capable of great deeds on the field of battle. He is a dangerous man indeed…
This metal range is extensive and have a sporran-full of character. To top things off you can purchase these beautiful models or take advantage of our new army deals! And no, we’ll no be having a sale…

The skirl of the pipes is perhaps one of the eeriest sounds that you can hear, more so if you were a Covenanter soldier in the Civil Wars in Britain 1642-1650 awaiting the approach of Montrose’s wild Highlanders!
The Scottish Clans were a throw-back to an earlier time. Small, tight family groups who eked out tough lives on hill farms supplemented at times by raiding from other Clans in long standing feuds. When times were very hard young men may go overseas and enlist in a foreign army, many reaching senior rank on the Continent. However, when the fiery cross was paraded through their lands all tools were downed and ancient but deadly weapons taken down from the wall as man after man put on his plaid and bonnet and went to join his Clan and Laird in battle!
Expertly painted by Dale Yates these miniatures provide options for a great many periods – not just the English Civil Wars – they can be used right out to the ’45, for instance…
Warlord Games’ Highlanders are depicted as they would form for battle. The Laird and his close family in the front ranks, ready to fire a volley then charge, whilst the middle ranks prepare their Lochaber axes, bows, muskets and broadswords. The poorest, youngest or oldest fill in at the back shouting encouragement and hurling stones.
There is little one can do but hope that a good volley can stop these atavistic wildmen, for if they close their deadly, flashing dirks will soon finish the business…
