Does anyone have a good resource for flags of the covenanter army fro the battle of Inverlochy? I'm finishing up my army and its time to do the standards.
Thanks

Hi rampantlion and Timmo,

The other Tim here, from BCW wiki

Thanks for the link Timmo!

Apologies, I haven't got around to completing Covenanter flags yet, there are more here on the last pages PDF link
though some need checking

As far as i remember Argyll's Highland regiment black with yellow saltire as per the link above, also a small detachment of the Earl of Tuillibardine's (white with red saltire) Note these flag colours are from later regiments in 1648, so best guesses rather than 100% certainty. The majority of the Covenanters at Inverlochy were a mix of highland levies from Campbell dominated territory. No idea of flags etc for these I'm afraid to say. The Project Auldearn guys did a great job of newly designing flags for their units based on coats of arms etc, see here auldearn1645.blogspot.co.uk

Try Project Auldearn, as suggested – and the Flags of War website may also be useful – I got a couple of sets from them which could be appropriate for Inverlochy ( Argyll, Mungo Campbell, possibly Loudon).
