Freikorps thoughts

While I'm not going to buy figures for it (or likely anything else much) in the near future, I've been seriously pondering creating a freikorps of Scots, in kilts, to serve in the army of Hesse-Engelburg. This is mostly due to my inate love of things Scottish and the idea of being able to paint some kilts in 30mm.

Does anyone have any examples of RSM95 Highlanders for the SYW period in pictures?

Ouch! I don't . . . but what a great idea. I would have ordered some if it had occurred to me, but . . .

. . . I already have a bunch of Grenzers to use as my irregulars . . . *sigh* . . . I wish I'd thought of Scots.

Hi Jeff,
would inexpensive minis be available, one could even endvisage 'torso swapping' between highlanders (for the upper part) & Grenzers, to depict those (30YW?) mercenary scots that finally sttled down somewhere near Ruritania (with tartan close-fitting trousers, of course!)
