More ECW Flags

Here are my latest two ECW cavalry cornets. Hope somebody finds them useful.

Parliamentarian, 1642-. Captain Booth of Cheshire. Motto means 'Not without cause'.

Royalist, 1643-14 June 1645 (captured at Naseby). This cornet was probably one of a series used by Sir Horatio Cary and his officers in a regiment of horse raised in the West Country in late 1643. The motto is an insult directed at the Earl of Essex, whose wife was notoriously unfaithful. A similar cornet with red ground was also captured at Naseby.

  1. Hi Alanus,
    Those are lovely flags. How do you create them?

  2. Thanks Matt. The flags are made the old fashioned way. I basically trace/draw them onto tracing paper from the book by Young I mention in my previous post. Then I reverse the image on the tracing paper so that the flag will end up double sided. Then I transfer the image onto good quality paper and paint them with Vallejo acrylics and finish with marker pen.
    Cheers,
    Alan.

  3. Sounds quite arduous but definitely worth the effort.
