You have grass dead right Jerry, take no notice! I've seen loads of photographs of this battle and that's just how it looks. Maybe the length hides the craters, I don't know, but that's just how it looks. I've also seen photos of Scottish Regiments being played up to the start lines of Epsom by pipers. But significantly they are wearing full BD, not kilts as in the "Scotland the Brave" set issued by was it Miniart?
Thanks for the support buddy!
I have seen those pics as well in the excellent book by Bernage on Epsom. Really great shots showing all the action before and during the Op,including the famous one of the munitions truck blowing up after a hit my 12SS mortars.
I had considered the bag piper but I think that may have occurred earlier than my scene here,as you said,when they moved up to the start line.
I would really love to include a piper somewhere in the upcoming sequence but also didn't want to get too full of "cliche" either?? On the other hand,it would be historically accurate and documented in period pics as well!
The quandary,the quandary.
