Earlier in the summer, a number of us dispatched small units or individual figures to Der Alte Fritz to partake in his Jacobite rebellion campaign games. As part of the back story for the Battle of Carmudgeon, I developed a character named "Frivolous" Fiona McGillicuddy. And several days ago, I completed painting a figure for Fiona using one of the free Old Glory Army pirate ladies.
She is holding a parasol to shed the copious amounts of rain that fall on the Britannian Isles and, for comfort on those rainy days, a bottle of single-malt Scotch whiskey from the private preserves of Clan Campbell's cellars.
many of you may be familiar with the family name of McGillicuddy. In later years, one of Fiona's descendants earned fame and fortune in New York married to that famous Cuban band master Ricky Ricardo. Yes, I speak of the red head herself - Lucy McGillicuddy Ricardo!
