Festive Flags!

Having recently completed my Christmas cavalry figures for the household’s festive display, I still had two last figures to do. My young daughter, upon seeing these new figures on the mantelpiece, asked if I needed some flags designing for them. She had previously designed the flags for my two Christmas infantry regiments, the 1st Noel and the Yule Grenadiers. I readily agreed and set to work on two flag bearing figures for each regiment whilst she worked on their guidons.

They are now complete and her designs are below:

The Carolling Hussars have a flag with a pleasing design featuring a green background with musical notes top and bottom (Christmas carols!). Some holly and a snowflake motif complete the flag. The Christingle Dragoons’ blue guidon meanwhile bears an image of a Christingle; – i.e. an orange with a central red ribbon, some sweets on cocktail sticks and a lighted candle. Perfect!

And here are the flags now being carried by their flag bearers over the fireplace:

And with that, I’m all set for the Christmas holiday. News of my military modelling intentions over the Christmas period to follow!

  1. The gudions are awesome although the chistingle flag bearer looks like he should be a carolling hussar as he looks like he is in mid verse! entertaining post as ever!!
