|Flagged with blue|
|Flagged as a 2nd battalion with 2 company colours in yellow|
The brush work is of a good standard and I chose to paint the pike staffs to match the uniform facing colours. I know some of the purists out there will be wringing their hands in horror but the last time I indulged in this kind of nonsense the consequences were both amusing and alarming.
|Flagged with a rich dark green|
I painted some Italian Wars Landsknechts with pikes coloured alternately in bands rather like a road crossing pole. I used Red and yellow I seem to remember. At that particular event there was, by coincidence another Italian Wars game. I think I knew the demonstrators and one of them came in to see us late in the day in high dudgeon.
|My first home painted battalion flagged as Preobrazhenskoi Guards|

The flags are of course from Quindia!
EDIT... added Gunter's video to the post...
As a post script (this post was due up today -March 5). A previous post about the Tactica game featured a battle shot of the red faced green battalion The link on TMP has prompted a question querying the green painted pikes).
