Brigade Games - French.Generals and Flag Dude Flags.

Recently I seem to have painted an awful lot of 'Green'

I received a prompt from Lon at Brigade Games a few days ago of his latest releases which reminded me that I had been neglecting one of the other projects that I had ear marked for progress this year.

The latest releases from Brigade are just what I have been waiting for to add a little character to the adventures of Claude Canard, after all what would a napoleonic yarn be without Napoleon myself to be saved from harm...


So I put a small order together for these and a few more French men for the adventures in Egypt, meanwhile whilst I wait for the post from the US it reminded me of the final purchase from Salute that has been sitting on the side lines for a few months.

I picked up a couple of flags from the The Flag Dude
Amanda and Rick O'Brien are a small US company who made the trip over to London, I have always liked the look of their flags but had never had a large enough need to warrant placing an order but when they were on the trade stand next to our game how could I resist.



The flags are made of a heavy paper are well detailed and created in a way so to flutter in the wind, they even come with the braids to finish the piece off.


I had been holding back on the French command section until I had a suitable flag, so it was good excuse to put the camo paints away for a while.

  3. Great to see the French all flagged up! A worthwhile purchase I hope.

    And those camel officers look rather smart. Will we see some more adventures of Claude soon? (I know, too many projects, too little time...)

  4. Those flags looks quite interesning. The camel officers looks great as well. Are you going to put them together on one base, or base them seperatly?

    1. Bartek as a fan of teh Sharp Practice rules, I suspect single bases, but I may include a dice marker, to capture shock if required.

  7. If Sharpe could save Wellington, then why not Claude Canard saving Boney? That will be an epic story. I am glad to see Flag Dude getting another kudo, I rate his products very highly.
    Cheers,
