75mm scale rersin kit. Sculpted and painted by Christos Panagiotopoulos. 

 The Battle of Culloden was the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising of 1745.

Raising an army consisting mostly of Scottish clansmen along with smaller units of Irish and Englishmen from the Manchester Regiment, Charles` efforts initially met with success and at one point began to threaten London. However, a series of events forced the army`s return to Scotland, where they were soon pursued by an army raised by the Duke of Cumberland. The two forces eventually met at Culloden, on terrain that made the highland charge difficult and gave the larger and well-armed British forces the advantage. The battle lasted only an hour, with the Jacobites suffering a bloody defeat. Between 1,500 and 2,000 Jacobites were killed or wounded in the brief battle.In contrast, only about 300 government soldiers were killed or wounded
