I have provided links below to my blog giving details of the first 'Bill Hooks BASH' held at Boards and Swords in early September. I hope that you find the reports entertaining and of use.

The Wars of the Roses seem like the highpoint for colorful heraldry, with their banners and tabards. Beautiful armies!

Who has to go paint some more olive drab

Is that a Bourchier banner that's upside down, Steve?

Hi Macolla, Well spotted! Yes, I was 'outed' for this on the day! I seem to have a habit of putting flags on upside down. I managed the same trick with my Napoleonic Brits, 2/44th Regt.


The good news that this was an easier fix. As it was PVA on metal, I could just 'flip' it over and slide the flag down the metal spear. I had only temporarily fixed the flag to the movement tray.

I was working on producing a batch of flags to 'pretty up' my units for the event. Sometimes more haste is less speed!
