Skirmish With The Border Reivers From Timeline Miniatures

January 7, 2016 by brennon

If you’re interested in fighting out some scuffles between the English and the Scottish during the 17th Century then see what you make of these Border Reivers in 28mm scale from Timeline Miniatures.

Interestingly the ‘Reivers’ weren’t just Scottish but English too and they were known to raid North and South of the border looking to pick on villages and towns where there would be little to no repercussions.

The March Warden

This has all the makings of a perfect skirmish game where you take a band of warriors and vagabonds across the border in search of riches amongst the houses of minor nobles and more. I really love the rag tag mentality of these warbands with their cobbled together kit.

It would be good if Timeline looked at making mounted versions of these Reivers too as the stalwart mounts they round over harsh terrain were certainly a key part of their imagery.

What do you think?
