Well-painted tartans are essential to most Scottish collections! We have JJD's Jacobites but TA's French-Indian War as a compromise. Tartans require intricate detail but at least it's a pattern (not that either of us can paint anything more complicated than a 1-1 scale fence or wall).
Anyway, the people who paint Atkin's castings/sculpts are top "toy" quality. Wish I could go to the London show to see them!
