VBCW Glasgow East Rifles

I had started painting these as a BUF Unit but as im never going to really game as the Fascists i never bothered finishing them. After picking up the newest Solway book on the Scottish Republic i took some inspiration from the Uniform plates. I wanted a Grey jacketed unit in Tartan Trews and what better than painting over the Black Uniforms of the BUF.

Glasgow East Rifles are a locally raised from the East End of Glasgow. They were formed by the Parishes in the Parkhead, Shettleston and Tollcross. They all signed the 1938 Covenant to protect their Faith and Scotland.  This Unit of the GERS are made up of Veterans from the Great War. Their Uniform is in the Grey of most of the Covenanters and they also wear the Government Tartan of the Black Watch.
