Renaissance figures

Here's a couple of pics that two of my customer's have sent me of their figures with my flags. both sets are rather splendid the first is Cesare Borgia by Jim Clarke, I think Jim's done an excellent job on these old Redoubt figures and am looking forward to more images from this army as Jim works his way through it.

Burgundian standard bearer by Ken Pearce; I really like the way this horse has been painted and love the clean and vivid colours Ken has achieved on this Perry figure.

Sir Charles Brandon Duke of Suffolk

I've pressed the gentlemen pensioners into service once more to carry the standard of Sir Charles Brandon  Duke of Suffolk. This completes the sheet I've been working on for Henry VIII.

Henry VIII's Gentleman Pensioners

Here's an alternative flag for the Gentleman Pensioners which was a depiction of st. George and the dragon on a green field with a white and green border. The pictures aren't the best as due to the bizarre weather here in Sunderland today  I can't get the lighting right; i'll take some better pics when the lighting's better, 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.

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
