Breton Banner


Last night I fiddled about making a banner for my new Breton warband, and here's the result. It is supposed to evoke the Miracle of Nantes, one of the 'abilities' of Alain Barbetorte in Northern Fury. I just painted it freehand, basing it it on the depiction of Mary in the Book of Kells. The face is a bit rubbish, especially on the left side. I'm thinking this will give the flag the name of 'Our Slightly Man-ish Lady of the Perpetual Five O'Clock Shadow'. Above all, don't look too closely at the knotwork border. I made a complete pig's ear of it, but from a distance it looks ok.

  1. I applaude you for doing it free hand. Much better than I could achieve and with practice it will look even better.
