Flags of War - New 28mm British Napoleonic

Yes I know "yet another flag update", sorry about that but at the moment work (i.e. what pays the bills) is stopping me from finishing off a few articles of my own, and the 28mm Napoleonic market seems to have gone quiet this month, except for the flag guys who must all be on drugs or something given the volume of releases!!


There is nothing like a deadline to spur you one and for "Flags of War" a commitment to supply flags to the Scarborough Wargames Club for their World Record Game of the Battle of Salamanca attempt (we mentioned this several months back on the blog) has resulted in the release of large number of new flags.

I was recently contacted by the guys from Scarborough Wargames Club who were trying to attempt a World Record Game of the Battle of Salamanca. They asked if I could supply the flags for it which I duly obliged. Then I seen I only had a handful of the regiments so I had my work cut out for me to get them done within a week.

Thankfully I got all the flags done in time for them but sadly they were not able to break the record. Better luck next year and we hope you have more support.

Here are the new additions to the website:

BNW48 Kings German Legion 2nd Battalion
BNW49 Kings German Legion 3rd Battalion
BNW50 Kings German Legion 4th Battalion
BNW51 Kings German Legion 5th Battalion

That's a pretty big release and maybe quite timely for me, I have just received the latest reinforcements from MMPS which includes the KGL 1st Brigade and the British 6th Brigade so I am in the market for some flags!

GMB and Victrix are very nice (and I do have a lot of GMB flags already) but they are quite expensive when you are buying flags for 8 units, Battle Flags are interesting, but currently only do the British and not the KGL, though buying flags 'by Brigade' is quite appealing, but now Flags of War have the lot. I might buy from both Battle Flags and Flags of War to do a comparison.
