Wars of the Roses Yorkist Flags

I've finally finished my first set of Yorkist flags and placed them up on Ebay; hopefully there will be many more to come over the next few months. Cheers Pete

Thirty Years War Swedish flags

Hi, when I first started making flags a friend asked me to complete a set of flags for the  Swedes and Imperialists, however I was never entirely happy with them so haven't sold them for a couple of years. Recently my interest in the TYW has been resurfaced so I've started 'dolling' a few of my old flags up by getting rid of the conjectural ones and repainting some of the originals. This is the first effort which is a company flag of Baner's Regiment which was a German 'black'  regiment; referring to the flags they carried  in the service of Sweden in the  early 1630's against the army of Tilly.

The Assault Group Tudor nobles

Here's a couple of pics of  my first base of Tudor nobles,  I've still got the base to finish and will get this done later  on in the week.  I've only got 7 border horse to paint and  then this 300 pt  Impetus army is complete and then it's back to painting  some flags or start painting the French. the figures are by the Assault Group and the barded horses are by Eureka.

WIP TAG Tudor standard bearer

Here's a WIP pic of the Tudor noble standard bearer, the rider's by TAG and the horse is by Eureka. I'm not sure how many nobles I'll give barded horses as I'm unsure to what extent they were used at this date. The little info I have is they didn't have time to get the bards from the baggage train at the Battle of Pinkie so charged without them which suggests they used them at other times. cheers Pete 

more Tudors for Impetus

Here's a couple more bases for the Tudors, the first is a unit of carabins  which appear to have been pretty successful in the war in scotland and the other is a Tudor shrimpe artillery piece. Little is known about these guns and I didn't have a clue what colour to paint it but think it's turned out okay. It's a funny looking thing though and reminds me of the mouse from fingerbobs.

The Asssault Group Tudors for Impetus

Here's some pics of my completed Tudors; there's nine impetus bases completed and one command  done so far. Initially I'll be painting enough for a 300pt force which means I have an artillery element and four cavalry bases yet to do; I'll add to this once I've painted a 300pt French force. The figures are the excellent TAG Tudors , the flags are my own and the bases are from Ian  at Precision Wargames Supplies, cheers Pete
