Beautiful work Pete!
Pete,Excellent stuff - now if you fancy doing the flags of Savoy for my Savoia 18th century range that would be impressive :)Graham
Hi Graham, I haven't got a clue about Savoia flags is there any links to any images etc so I can have a look see?
Pete,Try this site http://www.bandieresabaude.it/Bandiere01.htmlLots to look at. Graham
Hi Graham, that's a cracking site with some bonny flags on it, cheers
Incredible work Pete - the level of detail you've managed to add to the heraldry is just amazing! I'll get in touch for an order.
More excellent work Pete.You're a man with a great talent that's for sure :>)Darrell.
thanks for the kind words Darrell
Pete,Never mind what Graham says, I would personally create a few Saxon flags for the same period. By the way, the Austrian flags are wonderful, you just seem to get better with each new flag. Well done.
Hi Robbie, if the Saxons fought with the Austrians, I might be tempted as I owe you a flag .cheers Pete
The Saxons did fight with the Austrians starting with the Second Silesian War. They proceeded to lose to the Prussians at Hohenfriedburg and Kesselsdorf in 1745.
Eighteenth century history is a huge hole in my knowledge of military history so thanks for the info. I'm just about finished the earlier flags which includes the ones for Charles VI using his 1737 arms and the 1743 model green flags and just about to start the 1745 model. Unfortunately I'm not convinced with the depiction of the Madonna with child that's on Kronosaf, in the Summerfield book and in other modern reconstruction's so will probably go with a period depiction which in contemporary illustrations doesn't appear to change that much between 1740 - 1780; any thoughts would be appreciated.cheers Pete
I might have to re-flag my Austrians with these! Wonderful!
