For once I do remember which one I vote for and it was the green one. As usual fun duel , even if I personally prefer the duels we had before. :-)

It would appear that we have at least 14 members who did not recognise the glaring error.
There is an entry with the title Black Watch Piper and it very clearily is not.
King George V (reign 1910 - 1936) decreed that the Royal Stewart tartan, as the Sovereign's personal tartan, be used for pipers of several regiments.

Pipers of The Royal Scots (The Royal Regiment)
Pipers of the King's Own Scottish Borderers
Pipers of the Black Watch Regiment
Pipers of the Scots Guards
Pipers of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards

Rab Roy's kilt including battle damage.

Pipes and Drums of the 42nd Black Watch at Glamis Castle



Tsk tsk tsk!

And yes, I had no option but to vote for "Honour and Glory"

Maybe it is not a black watch piper, but it is a nicely painted figure though... And it got my voice for the extra amount of work on the pipe and the socks (maybe they are not called socks, I don´t know).

It does matter, but I know nothing about this period... and I just voted because of the paintjob (shame on me :-P)

So it is you, FredG, responsible for this, that I did not succeed to give revanche to Mr.X ;-)

Congratulations to the winner. 14 member! That is a lot for each one. And both get the same!
Congratulations to all who make both a winner. (There must have been an agreement :mrgreen: ) Because for me too I can`t see an advantage of one of the two competitors.

I start to realize that Fred G do always fact based commends.


My important commentary to kilt.

Image
To avoid such problems to color the kilt wrong I place the figure so
that ...

Image
... it is impossible to see the kilt. :eh:

:mrgreen:

No, I painted only "Urram.."

But this supposed to be revanche for Mr.X after February Duel. You ruin all good intentions.. ;-)

Then I voted for you and you didn't paint the wrong kilt. Your title doesn't specify a particular uniform.

Facts are very handy things Wiking.
If you use a regimental title for a figure then the uniform should be painted accurately and honestly. Use a general term and you can paint whatever you like ( within reason).
