Price: $70.00


John Jenkins Designs

The two-handed sword, or CLAIDHEAM-MOHR (big sword) was the original Claymore, and was most common in the 16th and 17th centuries. As elsewhere in Europe, the two-handed sword was essentially a specialist weapon, mainly used by the gentry or bodyguards. Its blows were deadly. At the Battle of Killicrankie in 1689, these weapons were mainly responsible for the defeat of a small government army. The battlefield was covered with severed heads and limbs. It was reported that there were bodies cut in half at the waist or even split from the head downwards.

This set includes the first of 6 grenadier figures for the 4th Regiment of Foot. Limited edition of 500 sets.
