Post by Dalauppror » Thu Oct 21, 2010 7:24 am

Hi

At last have I started to Focus on the Painting of my Later Imperial Spanish TYW army, Army of Flanders 1634.... I have got my 28mm minis delivered and sorted out in units. My plan are to finish the most part of the project by the end of November.

The to do list:
3 Commanders
5 Terccios each of 36 minis
5 Cavalry units each of 12 minis and horses
2 Artillery pieces with 4 crew each

All the minis for this I have and it is just to start painting...which I already have done:) You can se some more pictures and follow the progress of my projec at my Blog www.dalauppror.blogspot.com

Best regards Dalauppror

Great paint job, but I really love the flags. How did you go about doing them?

Thanks Peter !

I try to answer the flag question...

You will need: linen fabric. So dense as possible. Contact glue. A piece of piano wire or similar. Colors:)

Begin by take a piece linen that you cut as wide as the flag should be and some cm longer that it should be.

Cut the piano wire into any length but preferably a little longer than the flagpole should be.

Pull some contact glue on one edge of the flag and roll it tight around the flagpole, let it dry...

Paint the whole flag in the color that most of the flag should be.

When it is dry, you cut it in the length/shape it should have and then it's just to start with painting the motifs...I use to paint one base colour and one high light.

After the paint have dryed I use my Cliper to tear the flag so it look battle worn

I will try to take some pictures of the process the comming week...

Best regards Dalauppror

EDIT:

I found this picture of some of my flags that are under production...
