Drabant 40mm

Been on the Drabant website looking at their lovely stuff and wondering if they might be good for the '15. (Not sure why but the link Google has is wrong for this page) but anyway there's some great new stuff, conversions and pieces to enjoy on the site.
I wonder if they might produce a few Highlanders for the period? - I'm not saying I would enjoy painting tartan in this scale but a few poses might complement their WSS figures.
Looking on this miniatures forum the nearest anyone can find of Jacobites in this scale is Irregular 40mms from their ECW range.

have some Drabants. Beautiful figures and Nick Bokarev is always a pleasure to deal with. That said, building an army of Drabants isn't a realistic proposition for most. But mixing them in the same army as the affordable Irregulars is less of a stylistic disaster than you might think.

Took a look at the Irregular Highlander. He'll certainly work, although variety will be very limited even with building the variants. 40mm still requires resourcefulness and conversion skills for periods out of the mainstream.
