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.

  1. Love it. I still need to do the standard for my Vikings. This may just motivate me to do something!

    1. The banners have rules now. Only warriors and huscarls can take them. They allow units to rest more than once per turn however the model carrying it generates no attacks.

  2. Yea I may regret using plastic banners and hand painting symbols on mine, but we will see.

    Are you going to put some foil inbetween the paper to hold the bends?

    1. I might do but I haven't tried it before. I have a bigger standard for the Saxons that have jumped ahead of the Vikings in the queue. It might be better to attempt with that.

    2. I have done this with some smaller banners for my Crusades stuff. I used just some regular aluminum foil, 2 layers.

    3. Do you just glue them on/together with white glue?
