Information on the flags is in my blog post:


The Warflag/Napflags can be edited fairly easily to change the colors and or devices, and they aren't that difficult to paint freehand.

It is the marvel of this forum….that someone can even ask such a question…..

I know little (actually nothing) of Danish flags of the Napoleonic Era, but have massive respect for those that do.

I will admit that I did, at first, mock Perrys on the New Products Forum, when these figures appeared. I did feel there were greater priorities, but heck, why not indulge oneself in such esoteric work?

Not sure how many Danes were there on the Big Day, south of Brussels, but I gather there were some earlier battles, in the previous decade or two. (Mostly in 15/18mm or 1/72 as far as I can tell)

After the defeat in early 1814, Denmark was forced to send a force to help the allied side against the french. Off they went, but strangely everything was very complicated and the roads were long, so when the battle of Waterloo was over was the Danish expedition somewhere in the Netherlands, where they stopped and very fast went back to Denmark. The allies were not very popular i DK, and especially the English were seen as a traitorious and backstapping country, as a result of the totally unprovoked attack and bombardment of Copenhagen.
The danish army won most of their engagements and was a very professional army. There was some interesting skirmishes in Norway 1809 and 1814, and a battle north of Hamburg in 1813.
Thanks for the warflag link. I think their colors ar a bit too brigth.
I was hoping somebody knew of a site with nice cloth printed flags.

Although I've only ever bought their paper flags, I believe Maverick Models print on to material. Stuart provides an excellent service as well.

Hornblaeser's brief history of Denmark's Napoleonic War has prompted me to read more now. Only recently I discovered those little Scandinavian gunboats and their Baltic campaigns, through this forum. There is more to it than Scots Greys, Grenadiers of the Guard and Prussian Dragoons, I must admit

I will try mverick models, thank you.
There is a campaign that never was in 1808-09, where the spanish and danish army should have invaden Scania in sweden, where the british army and the swedish defended against the invasion. But after floating around in the baltic for many months the brits gave up, collected the spanish army and set sail to spain to figth the french.

I can recommend Stuart at Maverick Models. Always a good service. Will make up flags if you have details for him.
