15 mm TYW Flags - Vexillia

A little something different today: figures from my personal collection.

These are intended to represent early Thirty Years War (TYW) Protestant infantry and use some of the new Electoral Saxon Infantry flags released late last year and recently updated.

For practical wargaming reasons I'm using the yellow and black striped flags as a surrogate "national" flag. This is to "tie" the units together on the tabletop and to allow me to put two flags with each unit.

15 mm Mirliton – Chris Lawton

Today I received a nice surprise.  Out of the blue Chris sent me some photos of his 15 mm Burgundian Knights.  I haven’t been sent pictures of these for ages but I was really impressed with the brushwork:

The hand painted flag of the herald on the right is amazing. Overall the attention to detail is excellent and I like the armour effcet.  It’s well worth clicking on each image for a closer look at Chris’s technique.

15 mm Baueda - Peter Callan

I spotted this in a post on the soon to be defunct Fanaticus forum.  It was part of a photo gallery from Greg Kelleher featuring his recently acquired medieval DBA army based on Ridley Scott’s movie “The Kingdom of Heaven”.

It uses Baueda's large Byzantine command tent 15BYZB to create a DBA camp element worthy of Baldwin IV. The model is larger than most Baueda models with a 65 x 65 mm footprint.
