Hello all,

I found some old sheets of banners, banners and livery banners on the War of the Roses for 30 mm figures by Freezywater Publications 1992.

I have 5 questions…

1 / How many boards were published in all for the banners, banners and livery banners on the War of the Roses for 30 mm figures by Freezywater Publications 1992.

2 / Are their sizes really for 30mm figures?

3 / On the sheet N 7, the standard of Lord Stanley is red and green? Should not it be orange and green?

4 / Do you know other mistakes of this kind on the boards of the Freezywater Publications 1992?

5 / By curiosity is there anything else that has been done in the genre in sheets of standards, banners and livery banners on the War of the Roses for 30 mm figures?

Thanks for your help.

You really need to get the books on Heraldry listed here:
https://lanceandlongbow.com/shop.php

In particular, "Heraldic Banners of the Wars of the Roses" (3 vols).

3 / On the sheet N 7, the standard of Lord Stanley is red and green? Should not it be orange and green?

Yes, it should be tawney and green. The Freezywater 'Standards, Badges and Livery colours' similarly illustrates the banner of John Mowbray as blue over red, even though the text makes it clear it is azure over tawney. May be a printing error.

Yes Same mistake for Richard III as for John Mowbray!

It's unusable!

And apart from CitadelSix and Freezywater Publications 1992 there is nothing else?

You're probably better off making your own. But LBM also make some:

Too few choices with LBM …

Yes, this is why I say you're better off making your own. Sooner or later you'll find a gap in a range, or a flag you don't think is accurate etc.

I do not manufacture anything, I have too much work.

Hardly surprising. Painting an army of 28mm figures is a lot of work.

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP12 Nov 2019 9:18 a.m. PST

Yes, and you have to do a lot of research before!

Basha Felika12 Nov 2019 10:45 a.m. PST

From previous posts, it's clear you do a lot of careful research on a subject before starting to paint – I remember your questions about American Plains War Indian tribes – you must show us some pictures of the results of your hard work sometime!

Making a flag is no more difficult than painting a figure.

@ Basha Felika No no, I do a lot of research and for research I also get help from the TMP stuff that's all.

So I found and bought all the old books about the Plains Indians that had told me about this topic at the time.

@ MajorB :"Making a flag is no more difficult than painting a figure".How do you make your standard?

@ Basha Felika :

It's off topic, but here are your Plain Indians, happy?

If anyone knows heraldic mistakes on the sheets of the Freezywater Publications 1992, he does not hesitate to let it know on this forum, thank you.
