We love what we do, and flags are our passion. After a day’s delay, occasioned by my deciding I really had to produce my own version of the flag for North & Grey’s Regiment, the three new units are now ready for hummingbird mailbox covers war. Since I couldn’t find flags for North & Grey’s regiment with high enough resolution in a decent size, I had a go myself. I was preparing figures for the prescribed matt varnish I would find myself chatting to him – I called him Mike, in the absence of other suggestions. Well, it looks the San Marcos police were aware of what was going on, and instead of reporting to the scene to escort the bus, they mocked the 911 callers as they frantically called the police for assistance, while the dangerous situation escalated in real time. If you pass them on, or become famous using them, that’s no problem, but please mention where you got them. While sorting through the various units in the WSS boxes, I got confused a couple of times by the fact that the Bavarian and Austrian cavalry look very similar. There are also some lovely flags on the Not By Appointment blog, of course, (though they tend to be more towards the SYW) and I always keep an eye on Ray’s smashing work on Don’t Throw a 1 (though his are usually a bit earlier than the WSS).
Once again, I come up against a regular complaint of mine, which is the fact that you can’t get proper photo-quality print paper in 80g/sm weight any more, so the finished flags are sort of OK – they’ll do until I can get the good stuff again, at which point I may reprint them. Again, with the ECW stuff, a mix of Bicorne and Renegade Miniatures. Ah yes – the British Foot required a tweak to my (newly drafted) standard WSS unit layout, since I decided that they would have to have 2 flags, just for the look of the thing (so will the French – 1st battalions anyway – for the same reason). That’s just a snippit, of course, since there was a lot more in the 579 posts we drafted during the course of 2013. Now as we move forward into 2014 there are plenty of new projects to keep up with, and plenty more history to explore. Brand new extreme thrills are now waiting for guests at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, with the theme park having opened Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth to the public this holiday weekend. The funky looking construction we saw earlier has now transformed into a smooth concrete pad for the building’s expansion to take place on.
As a family owned business that firmly believes American and all other flags should be 100% made in America, we pride ourselves on supporting American workers and only distributing flags that are made of high-quality construction at competitively low prices. Are on there way to my distributor. 4.) I have a pretty good relationship with my old glory distributor. I spent some time last week working on my backlog of flags – this requires a lot of scanning and lifting screenshots, some actual freehand artwork (large, to be reduced) and a whole lot of graphic editing using my much-loved old version of Paintshop Pro. Tonight I hope to finish off the current period of painting and re-basing, and then I’ll spend a week or so trying to catch up on the small matter of flags. By tonight I should have completed a third. In summary of all the air combat games I’ve played over the years, this one comes the closest to feeling like real flight, without tracking the third dimension. In particular, my infantry battalions consist of 3 bases; two of these have 5 other ranks and 1 officer/NCO (and one of these two bases may contain grenadiers, depending on national practice), and the third one contains 3 other ranks, a standard, a drummer and a mounted colonel.
In my standard (pre-British) set-up, the mounted colonel is flanked by the ensign and the drummer, and the back row of the grenadier base is just another grenadier. They were duly pulled back a little, then suffered 3 retreat flags to enemy fire (no losses, just 3 retreat flags), so their retiral was increased to 4 hexes (that’s 800 paces) in one turn, ending up behind a hill, very much out of breath. Objective To review the evidence on diagnostic accuracy of red flag signs and symptoms to screen for fracture or malignancy in patients presenting with low back pain to primary, secondary, or tertiary care. Many flags also share colors, with red being the most popular, followed by white, green, blue, and yellow, respectively. They have white dice fitted at present, but I also have red and blue mini-dice of the same size, so I think I’ll issue the Bavarians with blue dice, to avoid any embarrassing mistakes! I was going to arrange a group photo of all the Bavarians I have ready for action, but decided against it – I’ll get to that another time – the gaps still irritate me! I’ve smartened them up a bit, but these are still identifiable as from the original 1970s army, which is what I intended, so I’m pleased with that!
