Hand-painted flags

These are some of Perry’s swedish napoleonic infantry. For a long time I hesitated about working on this project as I found it very difficult to make good-looking flags. There is only one or two manufacturers of suitable flags for this scale, and I didn’t particularly like them.

So, I tested a few techniques and found that it was’nt impossible to paint OK flags using a black/white printout of the basic design and them filling in the colours. To give them a bit of depth I shaded and highlighted the flags just like I would a miniature, and I used the same colours (in this case, Vallejo’s).
