NYW Flags Jacobite Earl of Clanricarde


This is my version of the flag for the Earl of Clanricarde, that fought at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. The flag can be seen in action in my last post. here.
Up next for my Boyne project are the Earl of Antrim's foot regt and Sarsfield's Horse, so look out for them soon.
I've also just finished some British artillerymen for the FIW, I've just gotta take a few pics of them and then I'll get them up on the blog.
Cheers!!

  1. Nice work, Ray. Are these flags your art work? If so, you've got talent-plus.

  2. Very nice work, Ray. They'll certainly stand out on the battlefield with those contrasting and vivid colours too!

  6. The colors on this are really nice Ray and make this flag stand out. I've been meaning to ask you if you've ever painted anything outside of military figures. Have you ever painted for the dark side?

    1. The only Dark side figures I've painted are some Lord of the Rings figures for my nephew, and that was many moons ago!!

  7. Ray, this is all good stuff. Have you thought about creating a separate page on which to post all your flags so that people can find them in one easy to find location?

    1. Just MS Paint, I'd like to get a proper graphics' programme, but they're so damn expensive.

    2. Thats very good for MS Paint. You could use GIMP and its free.

  9. You really do have a flair for this flag making jobby.

    In the last two cases you have mentioned you have had to make educated guesses, is ths because you have done all the well covered regiments or is is because the period was not as well recorded (or full of conflicting evidence?)

    1. Like you said, its just not that well documented, for the Jacobite's only around 7 infantry flags are known and out of them only the Earl of Antrim's and the Kings Foot guard were in action at the Boyne. So lots of guesswork and a little artistic license is needed.
