The Waving Flag: TYW Saxon Infantry

TYW Saxon Infantry

Update: 10:33, Mon 10 April,2023
The flags featured in this post have been unavailable since I closed vexillia in April 2021.  They are too good to disappear altogether so I decided to re-release them as a set via Wargame Vault.

Each set contains 24 flags in five different sizes, from 18 to 35 mm tall, all in one A4 pdf (for the UK & Europe). Just print the pages that fit your miniatures be they 15, 20, 25 or 28 mm.

Original post
These are early Thirty Years War (TYW) Protestant infantry.  My plan is to morph my TYW Danes by painting fresh command stands with different flags.  Until recently I was hand painting the flags but these are the first to use some of the recently updated Electoral Saxon Infantry flags originally released through

For practical wargaming reasons I'm using the yellow and black striped flags as a surrogate "national" flag. This is to "tie" the units together on the tabletop and to allow me to put two flags with each unit.

The flags shown here are the 20 mm version and the edges have been painted to blend the edges into the rest of the flag. The figure's pose did not allow me to use the larger (22 mm) version that I've used elsewhere.

All figures are from the excellent Donnington TYW ranges.
