A Highlander ready for battle on Culloden (Drummossie) Moor, April 16, 1746. Although this figure carries a target (shield) most highlanders at the battle were without one and that had a negative effect on their tactics*. 75mm figurine by Elite.

* A favorite highlander tactic for fighting against soldiers armed with muskets and bayonets was to come in low and use the target to lift the enemy's musket in order to have clearance to use the broadsword.
