Burgundian Flags work in progress

It's been a long time since I updated this blog or produced any new flags; anyhow, things are back on track now and here's a sneak peak of three new Burgundian flags that are nearly completed and will be in the post for those who have requested them by the weekend. Following these will be something new and the start of the French Wars of Religion and more Wars of the Roses flags, cheers Pete

War of the Austrian Succession and Seven Years War Flags

 I recently picked up the Summerfield book on the Austrian infantry and he proposes that flags from the time of Leopold I may have been used  however I'm not tempted to paint any of these. What's certain there is a lot of unknowns around the flags from this time and flags appear to have been used until they were captured or wore out. So with this in mind here's another pair of flags dating from the reign of Charles VI and likely to have been used in the WAS and early SYW, the coat of arms are dated 1737.

History and uniforms magazine

Massimo Predonzani the author of several books and articles on Italian history put me on to this new E-zine which can be downloaded for free at this address:    http://www.historyanduniforms.com/ subsequent magazines will cost around 3.5 euros. It's well worth a look and the article on the Venetians in the 1680's was pretty motivational. Massimo tells me the next volume will contain an article on the Battle of Agnadello which having read Massimo's previous work should prove a useful addition to anyone's library.

cheers Pete
