EDIT2: I know you cunning brits will try to make it look like I was being nailed in the ass. Henceforth I will clarify that I was using a nailgun.

And, truth be told, isn't knowing that the essence of wisdom?  Nerd

Hehe, aye.


I redid all the flags I had previously done. And this time I cut the flags freehand, and also decided it was better to just paint the flags from the beginning. Instead of using printed colours. Here I tried to do "wheat" icon on the flag, as Leffenstein is renowned from their top quality Wheat Beer.

I have to but admire people who can paint pictures freehand, such a battle it was to even get these dots on the flag.

Hey Phil,

Do you have any tips or tricks regarding flags? At the moment my work order goes like this ->

- Cut the flag (mirror the sides)

- Apply PVA on the inside -> insert flag on the pole (try to get the both sides aligned)

- Apply PVA on the outside to protect the paper from the future and to make a surface to paint on ( Thin coat )

- Paint

Atte. Smiley

I've actually painted about a whole three figures in the last 15 years. I don't want to see

Though, I don't know how many of the little men I've 'sculpted' in that time....I've completely lost count.

Flags ?

Hmmmm.....

First of all I'd see if Leon had anything appropriate in the Minibits section..(I bet he has !!)..Because that would be better than anything I could do 'freehand'.

If not.....I'd paint something a good few times bigger than I want.
Photo it, and put on the computer.
'Flop' it on the PC, so I had a mirror image.....Now I've got both sides.

Reduce.....and print.

Then
use your PVA 'tricks'.

You won't have to apply any paint then.

I hope that makes sense......I also hope that someone who 'does'  flags will jump in to give you proper advice !! Wink

You can always over paint printed flags (plenty of free downloads out there), using them as a guide. I think they look better painted than printed, bit it's a matter of how much time and effort you want to put in. I'vve seen over scaled flags on many figures to make them stand out more, which might help?
