More English Elizabethan Tudor Flags

I've added a few more flags to the 16th century English and made a couple of changes to the first flagsheet; the figure is from the excellent Crann Tara garrison troops command pack . there'll be another Elizabethan's Irish Wars  flagsheet to do once I decide which ones to paint and I'll probably  do a set covering the English commanders at the enterprise of Boulogne.  Cheers Pete

16th Century Irish

Not exactly the Italian Wars but at least the're 16th century. .... I've only got meself to blame for doing these as I've been  tempted by Crann Tara's re-release of the  Graven images Elizabethans and promising more to come. Thanks to Mr. Oliver Green for sending me  some pics of early Irish  flags; now I just need to buy some figures and paint a few flags for the English.  Does anyone know what Mountjoy's flag may have looke dlike?
cheers Pete

Crann Tara Elizabethans

I ordered a couple of sample packs of these figures and I'm pretty impressed with them. I'm planning on building a force of Elizabethans  to use with the 'To The Banners'   rules from Caliver books which for me work well for the mid to later renaissance. Hopefully Crann Tara's  planned future releases are as good as those  currently available; if so these will be the figures I'll be using

Giovanni delle bande Nere flagsheet

No body really knows what his flags looked like however here's my interpretation of the flags of Giovanni delle Bande Nere. My gut feeling is the yellow and black stripey one is the most likely however the others are based on coats of arms of Giovanni and the Pope. cheers Pete
