NYW/Jacobite Flags - The Earl of Antrim's Foot regt


This flag can be seen in one of my previous posts on The Earl of Antrim's regt, that fought at The Battle of the Boyne, in 1690. I can't claim this one to be 100% my work. I used the flag made by Dan Harper on his blog Sixteen Ninety as a template and with a few tweaks changed it slightly. The second flag was pretty easy to make, usually the red cross is shown with no white background, but I liked Pete's idea from his blog Irish Army of James II, of adding the white background as it shows up the cross more and looks better.

So thanks again to Dan and Pete!!!

  1. Yes, great work. BTW, I've been watching a series of Alfred Hitchcock movies on DVD, and guess what...he looks like you or you look like him. That's a compliment by-the-way, Ray.

  2. That's a very nice looking flag. I think the white background does make the red cross stand out much better against the green background. Good choice.

  3. Nice stuff. I was thinking about your flags and units while I was at the Boyne battlefield. You know, since there was no information to tell me what happened there.

  5. Have you ever done a tutorial on how you make your flags Ray? It would be nice to see how you go about the process from conception to completion.

  10. Hi Ray,

    really nice choice. I like the flags and the idea of the Irish regiment. Since I just posted a tutorial about my Napoleonic flags I would be interested in the way you apply them on your figures...

    Cheers
