a little surprised at the result. Many viewers have asked in the past for
plain flags because they are easier to modify (something we encourage).
However, in the four months this pole ran, we received 3,247 individual
votes. The result were 64% in favor of the textured flag style.

|Blenheim 2004 Wargame
uploaded some of the photos from the Blenheim
2004 game played at Enfilade gaming convention last may (2004)
in Washington. Most of the battalions and regiments in this game are flagged
with paper flags from this site. This is a nice shot or two of 3,600 wargame
figures on a 36' table.
Pil has contributed some beautiful textured flags from medieval Europe.
I have just uploaded his Medieval Belgian flags into the appropriate section.
Don't go just by the low quality image used on this page - which is just
a sample - but be sure and check them out in higher resolution under the
|Franco Prussian War
for some updates: I've been working on my own Franco Prussian War 15mm
figures and have decided to correct some flags I had uploaded for this
war. I had originally used the flag given in the Terence Wise book - Military
Flags of the World. I was subsequently told that these were in fact inaccurate
and I have therefore started to put a more correct version of the flags
online. The 1st Corps has been corrected and the rest will follow.
|18th Century Hanover
set of beautifully drawn hand painted flags from Dietmar Reddig in Hanover.
Dietmar has created all the foot regiment's flags from 1759 - but many
of which can be used throughout the 18th century. Dietmar has access to
local museums and libraries which has helped in his research.
Hopefully we will see more flags from Dietmar
in the future.
They can be found in the Seven Years War
section by navigating the "The Flags" link in the upper right.
|Advertising Banner Poll - see results
to the left.
It's time for me to consider what it costs
to run Warflag as the annual dues come up. I'd be very interested to find
out how you all feel about the banners at the top of the pages. Please
take a moment to view the poll on the left had side (down a little) and
is one of 190 hand painted French flags of the Wars of Louis XIV avaialble
from the Warflag Yahoo groups. Join by clicking the links on the right
hand side of this page. These were painted and painstakingly uploaded by
Boué from Paris. Eventually we will get these downloaded and
posted the main site - but for now, they can be found in the photos section
of the Warflag Group.
on a news group asked about the WSS Bavarian Grenadier Cavalry squadron.
I happened to have recently made a flag for this and had uploaded it and
another Bavarian Guard cavalry standard to the site. As I had made the
flag, but to my knowledge, no one makes a figure for these in 25mm, I thought
I'd explain how I converted a couple of Old Glory cavalry from their Wars
of Marlborough line. I took the heads off of a couple of old Foundry Grenadiers.
These are also OOP so you could use a grenadier from the same OG range,
but the front of the bearskin is not quite right - it has a low cloth panel
on the front. This can easily be filed off and the front blended into the
bear fur with a bit if "green stuff".
|War of the Spanish Succession
haven't done a lot to the site in the last few months as I have been busy
with my Blenheim Wargame project. However, that project required me to
get the Hanoverian army done, so of course - I needed the flags. The first
batch have been uploaded to the WSS section.
|Hungarian War of 1848
War of 1848 - now there's a war you don't see gamed often - but you
can get the flags here. These are a contribution from billh512002
on the Yahoo Warflag Group. See the rest of them in the 19th Century European

those of you make armies for Blenheim of the War of Spanish Succession,
you may wish to obtain the CD from Robert Hall. It is available through
Schorrs's fantastic website in the U.S. and also in from Peter
Berry's site in the U.K. who also produces 6mm figures for this
period. Also check out both of these sites for tremendous historical information
and painting guides. This example is the regimental and colonel's color
from the French Regiment Greder Allemand and is one of the flags on CD1.
The CD is in a PDF format, so to make a flag, it is necessary to cut (ALT
+ PRINT SCREEN) and paste (CNTL + V) the image to windows paint,
and cut out the unwanted part of the image, and make a mirror image.
The CD provides all the colors for all the French regiments as well as
all known uniform details from many sources, The CD is tremendous value
|An Interesting Book for WSS Gamers
the the first of "The Military
History of Eugene of Savoy". This book from 1736 presents the history
of Eugene and Marlborough, but for this web project, will just contain
those pages on Eugene during the War of the Spanish Succession. The fist
upload takes us from The Battle of Chiari to the Battle of Hochstet (Blenheim).
I will add more pages in time. I don't
know how popular this sort of project will be, so I would appreciate feedback
if you enjoy this project.
|Hand Painted Flags
series of hand painted flags from an anonymous donator
who will only identify himself as 'Agent_X' who has been a wargamer for
23 years and has won many trophies for his figure painting all across the
UK. His particular interest is the 16th to 18th Centuries , particularly
the ECW and Italian Wars. These are Later Italian Wars flags and can be
found in the renaissance section of the website. They provide an interesting
and very artistic alternative to the hard lines of the computer drawn flags.
Samurai section has been updated to the new format. These 65 Samurai
banners and standards were created by Wayne Ko. They are presented as single
sided images. They can easily be turned into banners or Shimonos as required
by manipulating them in a simple graphics program, such as Microsoft Paint
that comes with Windows. These flags' sources have been referenced by Wayne
on the Samurai selection pages, as well as instructions for printing.
Pirates page has been updated to the new format. What with all the new
28 mm flags and Ships available, this should be an interesting period.
For the big battle game, don't overlook larger actions involving mid or
early 17th century figures against more regular troops stationed in the
Caribbean. Of particular note are the early Spanish available from The
London War Room.
Burgundy. A splendid set of excellently drawn flags from Christopher
Reynier has just been uploaded. This sample is a reduced thumbnail, so
check out the directory for the full sized drapeaux in all its splendor.
Christopher is from the Principality of
Monaco, but lives now in Paris. He has taken the old Burgundian flags in
the medieval section, transformed some and completely re-done the rest
and added a few more. You can find the flags by selecting Burgundy from
the Medieval section, and following the appropriate links.
