Flying a Flag
Here is the banner I painted for my upcoming Jomsvikings yesterday. It is based on a design from littlebigmenstudios. They produce some great shield transfers and banners. However I really didn't like the colours they used for this one so I sketched out the design and painted it up to suit. It is much smaller than the original which is fine for a warband rather than an army. I want to make sure that each of my SAGA warbands has a distinctive colour so they can be easily identified. I used Dark Angels Green(GW) and Bleached Bone(VJ) for the basic colours and highlighted hem slightly. I have to say that at the scale I did this it was tedious and I will make sure that the next banner I do will be much larger. It would have been almost impossible to paint on something like a plastic GW banner. At least with my meagre talents. I just have to get more of the Jomsvikings together now so I can have a fieldable force.
