10mm Flodden English

Flodden project now complete with the 10mm English army. Figures are all by Pendraken.  Figure ratio used on both this one and the Scots’ army roughly 250:1 which gives nice manageable numbers.  Roughly based on DBR rules though the double-based command and bills isn’t strictly legal as they are two different grades.  Similarly the pikes in the Scots’ army.  No matter as won’t game with DBR anyway!

  1. These look great, saw your post on TMP (on my 'help with flodden' thread), i've went ahead and ordered loads of pendraken minis, but don't know where to get the flags...where did you get yours?

  2. I researched them all from the arms of the various personalities named in the accounts, created them in Powerpoint and Paint and printed them from there. Sadly I lost them all in a disc crash. Ray 'yar68's blog has loads if not all the ones needed.
    There is one flag you have to be careful about, that is the Earl of Surrey's. Frequently it's shown with what's called the 'Howard augmentation' which was granted by Henry VIII to the Earl AFTER the battle. The augmentation is a little Scots rampant lion with an arrow through its mouth which appears on the arms. Obviously this did not exist at the time of the battle so you have to show Surrey's arms without it.
    There's a figure Pendraken do which isn't in the Scots pikemen standard pack. If you look at their website and look up 'European pikemen' in the same list; it's the figure with the upright pike, it's a little cracker. If you ask them they'll do a bag of them for you. Pendraken are very amenable, they did a bag of SYW mounted drummers for me not that long ago, same price as a standard cavalry pack.
