"Here's a pic of the next 11 French Italian Wars flags that I've put together and will be mixed with the sheet I already have done. Other than the central flag (6)is in Francis I's livery colours all the flags are copied from contemporary imagery. Flags 1, eight and 11 are taken from a Flemish painting of the battle of Pavia, 2 and 3 are taken from a picture of Pavia in the Royal collection and flag; similar flags are also depicted in a contemporary painting of the Battle of Marignano and 3 is also depicted on Francis I's mausoleum. Flags 4, 5 and 7 are taken from the Van Orley Pavia tapestry (4 and 5 are being carried by Swiss and flag 7 is thought to be one of the flags carried by the Landsknecht black bands). Flags 9 and 10 are taken from a painting of the Battle of Marignano dating from the 1520's and depict Francis I's banner of the salamander and the banner of St. Michael. I'll have my French sheets reorganised and up for sale sometime early next week. Cheers and thanks for looking, Pete"

Is there still a way to purchase his flags?

He has a store on eBay, just go to eBay and search 28mm renaissance flags and you will find them.

I am really liking those three flags on the right of the sheet. May have to buy some soon.
