Superb, all the pageantry on display!

The black edging on the flags really makes them pop, I may have to steal that technique!  Cheesy

Thanks, mmcv. There have been discussions various places about the black edging. Others (PaulR and Pierre-the-shy come to mind) edge with the base color of the flag which looks really good. While I made a few of the flags, the bulk are made from the Pendraken Flodden four sheet set.

Yeah I've been edging with the base colour as well. My folding and sticking isn't always the neatest mind you, so black might neaten it up more.

I use a black felt-tip brush - use the edge only. It is quick and easy and I attribute my mistakes to shot or arrow holes!  Smiley

Thanks also Leman and Mr. Lemmy. Flodden is weird battle - part medieval, part renaissance. It the gateway drug  to a whole new century of warfare for me, I think.

Terry, thanks so much. I bought the Pendraken starter Armies for Flodden then two already painted armies on EBay. Ive mentioned that I didnt like the way these last were painted and ended up repainting the entirety of both. The only time savings was I didnt have to prime them! Expensive lesson. Have also now added in most of starter packs as well to get the numbers I wanted.
Going originally with the over-sized flags for the Scots an they all had to be re-flagged. I am at least now starting to like the looks of them.

Getting back into painting more and just finished up a flock of small bases to represent both fractional units and special purposes units for my messing around with the Flodden period. These take smaller, detachable flags, in this case to represent the Scottish factions taking place in the Battle of Linlithgow Bridge (1526).

The Lennox faction:


The Douglas/Howard faction:

In the left foreground is a timber barricade (obviously made of toothpicks) for the Linlithgow Bridge. The three rows behind the Douglas faction (heart) flag are for use elsewhere.

Right. I'm new to the period, but why are the top bunch running under the Irish flag, and a section fo the lower photo appear to be Japanese.   Tongue

 Grin at a distance they might also be taken as Spanish!
Yes, Lemmy has it.

The St Patricks cross flag is actually an abbreviation of the Lennox arms with the red rose in each quadrant omitted. 
At least one illustration in the book you are awaiting (The Heart and The Rose), shows a Lennox soldier wearing the same as a badge.
In fact when you see the map illustrations it will become obvious why Im using faction flags.  Smiley
