Yep there is a saltire on there. Thanks.

I didn't think they would be so hard to come by?

Surely there must be "Scottish" army commanders out there with information on where to get 15mm saltires?

Re: Protected Spear - whats the point(s)..?

Protected spear are a mainstay of many armies, yet whats the point? That's a real competition wargamer's kind of question. There are people here better able to judge than I as to whether the category successfully models their historical counterparts - I don't know the answer. Is the consensus that ...

Thanks for the link and the suggestion. I may have to resort to that but I was hoping to get good quality, professional flags that will not fade with time link those do which one prints oneself.

Medieval Scots - Flags and Banners for 15mm

I am currently painting a Medieval Scottish army and have bought some 15mm banners from Freezywater Flags but these are for noblemen and I wish to provide several units with the saltire. I am finding the national Scottish flag hard to come by, so I wonder if anyone can suggest a supplier?

Thanks.

I'm just starting to paint my Isles army. At the moment my Highlanders are soaking in white vinegar. Tomorrow I'll spray 'em black ready for painting. Can't wait.. :D

I can't see much tactical flexibility in the army but it's a romantic one.

It was also good to see the return of Hannibal as a commentator.

Pyrrhic plus Early Successor armies. I've never been able to work out how such troops were combined though. Pike plus elephant is easy, it's the Galatians plus pike that gets me every time. That said, Pyrrhus was said to have reckoned his defeat of Antigonos Gonatas' Galatians as the finest action h...

Unfortunately army lists can only be a guide, and their intention is merely to give people a guide. It is difficult to agree on them, and it's a shame that so much store is necessarily set in them for the purposes of competitions or anachronistic encounters (which appears to dominate the hobby). In ...

Play with it and let us know. It's the only test really. You and it might be brilliant. :wink:

Personally speaking, I'd like to see how those 4 bases BGs of Superior legionaries get on.

I'd have been happy with that - I find the period desperately dull. However, Osprey have a department that thinks up silly titles so they have to be used :lol: Man, you got that right.

Great period in my view although perhaps not tactically speaking (and FoG is about tactics and nothing else).

BTW possum my log hall isn't a draughty one, the food is good, the poetry passes the time and the mead and ale are excellent.

Figures for Early Crusaders

As a longer term project I am toying with the idea of painting Normans as Early Crusaders. Two Dragons Productions' figures are recommended by the Madaxeman but I cannot find good pictures of them. Are their figures really so good or are other ranges as good if not better? Will they be suitable for ...

I'd be very interested in people's thoughts on this too - especially those with experience with these hairy bare-legged types. I am waiting for a batch of Highlanders to arrive so that I can at last begin painting my Lord of the Isles army.

I hope all that painting will be worth it.
