WIP Stradiot flag Pietro Duodi

Thought I'd have a quick break from painting Lancastrian flags so this my representation of the flag of Pietro Duodi commander of the Venetian stradiots at the battle of Fornovo.  I've been wanting to have a go at this and other flags from this battle for ages and will continue to spacing them between the Lancastrian flags. The figure is a 'westernised' stradiot from Perry miniatures and I've wanted some of these since the osprey book came out.  Since I've just finished a book on the life of Marullus; a stradiot officer in the service of Naples amongst others the figure was srying out to be painted; I've got to finish the horse though.
