New Banner for my Swordsmen
« Reply #25 on: March 02, 2006, 08:29:52 PM »
I like the first banner best, but you need to "age" it a bit.  A little flesh wash, a little fraying or raggedness on the edge would help, along with larger borders all around.

The last banner is clearly better than the 2nd banner, tho I'd enlarge the shield a bit more.  I'd have simply quartered the banner to match the red & blue of the regiment, rather than striping it.

I like the second banner. If you still have the old banner you could simply have BOTH flags in the regiment (since you said you liked the historical aspect...so why not multiple banners?) My Ulrican regiments all have two banners and I have had lots of compliments on them. Just don't let your opponent try to score themselves 200VP for capturing the flags.

I love the look of more than one banner in a unit, but as my regiments usually march only 4 or 5 wide, fitting in more than one standard bearer is a bit problematic.

Have we ever seen pictures of your completed Ulricans? The WIP's
